PageMill 3 for Macintosh and Windows: Visual Quickstart Guide
is a comfortably compact volume, easy to hold while sitting at the computer and features concise and straightforward instructions on every aspect of the application. Each page has text side-by-side with screen shots of the commands in action.
Readers get a basic overview of the internet and HTML in general, then learn about PageMill 3's interface. The book then shows how to create pages, edit and format text, insert images and plug-in objects, create and edit tables, add links, use frames and forms and troubleshoot their HTML and manage an entire site.
As opposed to the author's previous edition on PageMill 2, this book features cross-platform instructions. One caveat: since PageMill 3 has so many variances between Macintosh and Windows, the doubling up of commands and menus could be confusing despite the books clear and thorough captions. Slow and careful reading at these stages is advised.
As with other Visual Quickstart Guides PageMill 3 for Macintosh and Windows: Visual Quickstart Guide is meant to serve as a reference, not just a tutorial. One can access needed information through the index, the table of contents or by flipping through the labelled thumb tabs. Appendices show all toolbars, menus, commands and keyboard shortcuts, thus making PageMill 3 a complete and practical manual.--Angelynn Grant
