Have you ever taken a photograph of a spectacular sunrise or sunset only to notice that there is a distracting sign or power lines in the frame?

Many people are familiar with HTML and CSS, and think that’s all you need to put together to make a pleasing web site. Others feel that by using an application such as RapidWeaver or Adobe Dreamweaver, most of the work is done for them. Sadly for these people, that’s not the case.

  • Building Your First Web Site
  • Building Better Web Pages
  • Adding Frills and Fancy Stuff
  • Making Money
  • The Part of Tens

The first section assumes you are at least familiar with HTML. Not necessarily an expert, but have a basic understanding of HTML code. Crowder then moves on to advanced HTML, including tables and frames. Finally, he tackles the topic of choosing a domain name and host for your newly created web site.
