Mom! I built my own website
Amihud set out to write a book for the 11- to 17-year-old age group
on how to build a website. Having just finished a degree in Graphic
Design, I was obligated to take a website building class. Why, oh
why, didn't our instructor choose a book that was this well-written
and easy to follow?
book starts out by asking the reader what the website they are building
will be about and tells them how to organize their content. The
book also tells the reader what programs will be used--programs
common to Microsoft--and how to locate them on the computer.
author then proceeds to teach the reader about the basics of HTML
in a language that I could finally understand. At last it was no
longer Greek. The reader is then walked through the steps needed
to make a very basic but attractive web page. In the final chapters
the reader is instructed in how to find a web server and actually
publish their newly created page.
is an excellent, easy-to-follow book with great examples and ample
illustrations. A website is also included if further help is needed.
Although this book is specified for a younger age group, I think
all ages and levels of computer competence would benefit from reading
