My Home Page Tips (August 1996)
You really should learn a little HTML so that you can "tweak" your web pages
just the way you want them to appear. I started out using the demo and shareware HTML
editors: I found HTML Writer easy to
use and it doesn't have an expiration date. I've made the transition to Microsoft's Front Page 98 because I have so
many links that I need the "link verifier" function to help me locate
"broken links", but I'm still using HTML Writer.
For those of you who are just learning about the WWW and home/web pages, check out my
HTML "links". Additionally, I have found two books about HTML very helpful:
"HTML Visual Quick Reference" by QUE, 1995, for $14.99, gives examples
of how to design Hypertext Markup Language, HTML, documents on the left page and, then,
shows you what the document will look like on the right page. HTML is never intimidating
after reading this book!
"Special Edition ... Using HTML: The Most Complete Reference" by QUE, 1995,
for $39.99, contains a CD-ROM full of freeware, shareware, and demos of HTML editors,
templates, graphic converters, WWW browsers and applications, and more... for PC, Macs,
and Unix workstations. I had spent hours "surfing" the WWW downloading many of
these programs before this book was published.
