It’s easy to design, build, and post a Web page with Google Page Creator or CoffeeCup HTML Editor, but a friendly guide still comes in handy. Creating Web Pages For Dummies®, 9th Edition introduces you to Web design software and online page-building tools, and walks you through the process in record time.

- Register for a Google account and use the versatile Google Page Creator
- Build pages using basic HTML or CoffeeCup HTML Editor

- Maintain control by creating and editing pages in HTML with a text editor
- Understand how image file size affects your pages, how to upload photos to Flickr, and how to add sound and video files to your Web pages
- Develop your pages into a site with CoffeeCup HTML Editor and Visual Editor

U can always trust "for dummies" books befause they are for everybody. It is worth it
This is a good book if you know absolute nothing about web pages. It covers almost all aspects related to web sites in a very easy language. However, this book takes whole chapters telling us how to use two or three particular softwares that I think nobody uses.
