DESCRIPTION: Easy to use web page authoring tutorials covering basic and advanced web page design. The tutorials are in HTML format so you can go through them with your web browser. If you've never created a web page before, the basic tutorial will guide you gently though basics of HTML. And, if you know the basics, the advanced tutorials will show you how to add additional features to your page.
IN A PAST LIFE these tutorials were released separately as "So, you want to make a Web Page!", "Table Tutor", "Form Tutor" and "Frames Tutor".
THESE TUTORIALS ARE FREEWARE.
They are not copyrighted. You may use and/or distribute them to your hearts
If you wish to post them on your public or private server, you can.
If you wish to translate them into another language, you can.
If you are a teacher and you want to use them for teaching purposes, you can.
If you want to include them on a CD with other Internet programs, you can.
If, for some lame reason, you copy them verbatim and call them your own, I will have no choice but to tell mom, and boy will you be in trouble!
1) Windows95 is the operating system they were intended for. Although without much trouble at all, users of Windows3.x should be able to go through the lessons just fine.
2) A web browser. Preferably Netscape Navigator 3.0 or later. MS Internet Explorer 3.0 or later will do if that's all you have (or want). I haven't tested the tutorials with other browsers so yer on yer own.
3) A text editor. Notepad will do nicely for now.
4) A comfortable chair and an attractive member of the opposite sex to tell you how computer geeks are sexy and to rub your neck if it gets stiff.
INSTRUCTIONS- SHORT VERSION: Double-click on webtutor.exe. After the files extract, find the WebTutor/HTML Tutorials shortcut in your Start Menu. Have fun.
I COULD USE SOME HELP:
1) I'm not entirely happy with the crude "installation" I currently offer. If someone is willing and able, these tutorials could use a lightweight but professional installation routine, both Win95 and 3.x.
3) I'm getting bored with my Professional Web Design 'logo'. It's the big blue thing at the top of my homepage. If you're so inclined, whip up something and send it to me. No promises, but if it tickles me in just the right way, I'll use it and give you a good link.
4) I've gotten many requests for permission to translate these tutorials into other languages. I've said yes to all but didn't have the foresight to follow up. I know that there are translations out there in various stages of completeness. What I want to do is compile a list of completed translations. If you are aware of a translation that is complete and well done, drop me a line.
Have fun & good luck!
