Netscape Aids

    A simple but effective way to develop and edit a basic web page is to use
    Netscape 3.04 Navigator Gold. Although this is no longer in common day-to-day use as a web browser, it is readily available to download from the ZiaNet Netscape archive.

    Actually any of the later Netscape browsers (such as 4.8 or 7.1) are also handy and freely available for creating basic web pages.


    One alternative is to visit this simple
    Starter Web Page
    Download and save it on your computer, and edit it to have the content you want. Then upload it to your web server,
    If it is your first web page, please name it index.html

    Here are two other simple examples of starter web pages.
    simple.html includes a background image
    simple2.html has a background color, but no background image.
    Again, Download and save one on your computer, and edit it to have the content you want. Then upload it to your web server,
    If it is your first web page, please name it index.html

    FTP

      If you live off campus, you may want to use FTP (file transfer protocol) software to transfer files to your web site. Examples of FTP software which is free at least for academic users include:

      CoffeeCup Free FTP
      Cerberus FTP Server
      WS_FTP LE

    Backgrounds and Clip Art

    Validation/Analysis

    Commercial packages

      If you want to move on eventually to commercial pages, lots are available. One example among many is Macromedia Dreamweaver and Fireworks.
