About the Author

About the Authors David Elderbrock David Elderbrock got his start as an Internet developer at the University of California at Berkeley, where he helped design an online reading and composition database for writing instructors while working on his Ph.D. in English. That was way back in the days when HTML was still an esoteric art practiced mainly in Switzerland. Mosaic was just an XWindows application written by some undergrads in the Midwest, and commerce on the Internet was still regarded as a big taboo. Since then, David has worked as a commercial intranet and Internet consultant and Web application developer. He has helped design and develop over twenty Internet and intranet Web sites for Apple Computer, Pacific Bell, Citibank, Silicon Graphics, and Barclays Global Investors. In addition to hammering out his share of Web pages, David has also done programming, mostly in Perl, JavaScript, and Java, and, more recently, a smattering of Visual Basic and C++. He has developed a number of online database applications, SQL and otherwise, on Macintosh, Windows, and UNIX platforms. He is the principal author of Building Successful Internet Businesses and a contributing author of Producing Web Hits, both IDG Books Worldwide publications. Any day now, he swears, he is going to get around to designing his own Web site. Paul Bodensiek Paul Bodensiek is the owner of ParaGrafix, a Web publishing, graphics, technical writing, and engineering consulting company located just outside of Providence, Rhode Island. He honed all the skills required to make ParaGrafix a go during his 12-year tenure as the entire engineering, technical service, graphics, and training departments for a small manufacturing company. During his time with that company he also picked up five U.S. and over 25 foreign patents. Paul has written, contributed to, or edited about 15 books on Web publishing, computer graphics, and computer gaming. He's also written over 100 user manuals for various hardware, software, and manufacturing companies. His most recent book is Corel WebMaster Suite For Dummies, published by IDG Books Worldwide.
