Overview

Hundreds of thousands of websites are available. More and more people are learning to "post" their writing on the Web and Internet — some of it is well-written, while much of it is not. Internet communication and "netiquette" is increasingly more important in establishing a credible website. This book will address the proper writing technique for Internet writing-with less theory than other books and more application! This comprehensive, flexible, and accessible Internet writing guide explores Internet communication with the aim that readers will become better writers in both print-based and electronic formats. As such, it teaches the basic "elements of style" for writing HTML and introduces readers to the fundamentals of constructing a web page. Anyone who writes (or wants to) for an electronic medium, especially the Internet and World Wide Web.
