The World Wide Web is exploding all around us, and it shows no signs of slowing down. Chances are that if you've opened the book to this page, you're already familiar with the Internet in general and the World Wide Web in particular. You've probably al-ready explored what the Web has to offer, and like millions of others, you've become hooked by its limitless information and exciting content. In fact, you've probably even thought about publishing your own home page on the Web.
Surprisingly, publishing on the Web is easy. The backbone of the World Wide Web is the Hypertext Markup Language, often simply re-ferred to as HTML. This is the language that is used to create Web pages, and it is the glue that holds all of the pieces of the Web together. Despite its power and flexibility, HTML is simple to understand and write. HTML is not complicated, and it doesn't require special compilers or tools. In fact, you can write HTML just as we did for this book-using the Windows Notepad.
How to Use HTML 3.2 is an illustrated tutorial that will teach you the fundamentals of HTML. It starts with the basics, and then moves on to the more advanced concepts. Along the way, you'll get the chance to practice your skills in a series of exercises known as Try-Its. By the time you complete this book, you'll be an accomplished HTML author. Even when you finish reading the book, you can continue to use it as a reference and guide as you publish your own documents on the Web.
The Web is an exciting medium, and it levels the playing field for electronic publishing. Anyone can publish on the Web. There are very few obstacles, and no special tools are required. All you need is a working knowledge of HTML, some disk space on a Web server, and a whole lot of ambition. This book will teach you everything you need to know about creating HTML content on the World Wide Web. The rest is up to you.
