Absolute Beginner's Guide to Creating Web Pages assumes that readers are true beginners - no prior Web page experience is necessary!
The Internet has come a long way. In fact, even if you’re only a few months past 10 years old, you’ve seen the Internet and the World Wide Web grow up to affect nearly every aspect of global culture—education,
commerce, politics, and entertainment. It’s been a fast change and one that affects most of us either personally, professionally or both. One of the results has been the need for Web publishing skills for many knowledge workers, educators, and professionals. Hobbyists, club members, and parents can benefit as well from knowing a little something about Web publishing. In fact, Web publishing may one day be the “typing” of the future—nearly anyone with a secondary education will need a firm grasp on the basics. For now, it’s an important bullet point on many resumes as well as the key to many plum assignments, both paid and unpaid. If you’re ready to put together and manage your own Web site, then it’s time to get a book on the subject and start learning. The Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Creating Web Pagesis the perfect place to start.
