There were two books I purchased to help me create these Web Pages that I highly recommend. They are "Teach Yourself Web Publishing With HTML In 14 Days" by Laura Lemay and "HTML For Dummies" by Ed Tittel and Steve James. Both of these books were invaluable. If one book couldn't answer my question, I found it in the other, so both are a good idea.
|HOW TO BUILD AN ATTRACTIVE WEB PAGE
By Deborah Burton
This is an article with a series of links that gives you information on writing HTML code (what you need to learn to write a web page) and there is lots of information and tips on graphics, too! If you're really serious about building a web page, this article should be a big help and get you started.
|A KINDER GENTLER VALIDATOR
This is where I have validated all my Web Pages, but there are other validators on the Web. Validation is a *very* important part of writing good HTML.
I use Cute FTP to upload (and download) files to my Web Pages at my ISP and would be lost without it! This is another program that is shareware that can be downloaded and used for free for 30 days. This is an invaluable tool as well.
This site is filled with *tons* of downloadable shareware to help build your own web pages.
|ENDER DESIGN: REALM GRAPHICS
This is the site where I got my little stars and "New" icons from. Andrew Soncha has a lot of really neat graphics (buttons, lines, bullets, backgrounds, etc.) that you can download and use for free on your personal web pages on this site. This site has some of the classiest graphics around!
