ABOUT THESE TUTORIALS
If you know very little or nothing about HTML web page design, then
these tutorials are for you. Each tutorial is actually an interactive
lesson on some aspect of web page design. With these lessons, you should
be able to produce an excellent website for your favorite charity,
business, or simply for your own personal website.
If you are a beginner, I recommend that you begin with
Lesson One and progress through the course lesson by lesson. Just take
your time and be sure to try all the problems. You will be amazed at
what you learn. You have all the basics you need right here in this
website to get you started on some great looking web pages.
If you are only interested in a particular topic, then just go to
the lesson featuring the topic.
SUGGESTION: You might find it easier to follow a lesson and to work on
the problems if you first printed out the lesson on paper.
Just choose PRINT from the menu bar at the top of your browser or choose FILE
and then PRINT... If there are links in the lesson you can always go on line later and
New lessons will continually be added as they are completed. Any new
lesson or update will be announced at the beginning of my main home page
and also on my alternate home page.
