So, you've been exploring the Web for a while now,
and you're ready to start telling your own story to the world at large. The first thing to do is to learn about HTML (HyperText Markup Language), the standard language
used by Netscape Navigator and other browsers to bring documents
to your computer screen. Next, you'll want to learn about adding online
forms, graphics, sound, and video to take advantage of the
interactive and multimedia capabilities of the Web. And once
you understand the basics and start coding pages like crazy,
you'll want to find some development tools to make your work easier.
And remember: You can always ask questions and swap stories
in any of the assorted html newsgroups available.
