Booklist Review

Sinclair is a contributing editor to Multimedia Reporter and has written books on online auctions, thin client computing, Web typography, and Web page design. This new guide is a straightforward, step-by-step, easy-to-use manual for individuals who want to build personal Web sites without having to learn and utilize HTML. Sinclair relies on Netscape Composer and Microsoft's FrontPage Express, the free programs that come with either the Netscape or Microsoft Web browser, and his advice will not benefit Mac users. Sinclair explains how to locate these free authoring programs as well as a free online graphics editor. He covers how to test Web pages, edit and improve text, add photographs and digital images, build links, create a navigation menu, choose a Web host and domain name, use animation, and encode audio and video files. In appendixes, Sinclair summarizes his advice in seven basic steps, and he offers more advanced instruction for those who do want to know about HTML. A final list suggests 14 applications for which one might put a personal Web site to use. --David Rouse
