Six Steps to Building
Step 1 - Begin with a Good Idea.
- What is your purpose?
- What is it that you want to tell people with your words and pictures?
- With whom do you want to share information?
Step 2 - Design Your Page.
- Figure out what your page will look like.
- Decide where to put the pictures, the text and the titles.
- Check other home pages for ideas.
Step 3 - Prepare The Pieces.
- Prepare the pieces by writing the text, drawing the pictures,
finding the images or scanning the images into your computer.
- Keep it simple, and make it look good.
Step 4 - Build Your Page.
- Import the pieces, set their sizes and colours, move them around
your home page until you see what you like and the page is built
to do what you want it to do.
Step 5 - Test your Page.
- Using Netscape or Explorer, open the pages you just made with
the HTML editor to see how they look.
- Your pages must be tested carefully because different web browsers
or computer types can make the pages look different.
Step 6 - Publish The Site.
- Publish your page, on the your personal service provider, school
intranet or district server.

below are some other good links to get 'fancy stuff' for your web.

in return for using their images.
ALL graphics here, except what I have made, were taken from large
graphics sites on the internet. While these have been taken in good
faith to be in public domain, it's impossible to determine whether
the site from which they were downloaded was itself not displaying
a copyright and was also unaware of one. I would never take and
display someone else's copyrighted graphic. If you choose to use
a graphic and it is copyrighted and I am unaware of it, this is
your problem not mine. If any graphic here is copyrighted, and I
am unaware of it please inform me and it will be removed. Thanks.
