5.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners, 8 July 2011
By 
This review is from: Creating a Web Site: The Missing Manual (Missing Manuals) (Paperback)
This book is brilliant if you are totally new to creating a website. You do not need to be a computer whizz to follow the chapters. I did not really know what html was before picking up this book but I had created my first webpage (albeit very basic) within a couple of hours of receiving the book. Don't get me wrong... you're not going to be able to create a decent looking website immediately after reading the book but it does give a good overview of all the main considerations.

I tried to figure out how to create a website from reading through numerous things on various websites but none of the information was a clearly set out as in this book. It's written in plain English.

If I had one tiny problem with it, it would be that the book focuses a lot on how to create websites using either Dreamweaver or Expression (expensive text editors that the beginner would not necessarily have). I would have liked to see more advice on how to use the free editors like NVU.

I now feel pretty confident in making my first website... and that is coming from someone who has only ever used WORD and EXCEL before!!!
