How do I save my Web pages to my Web server?
A reader who has stumbled across an older edition of my book writes:
"I recently read your book Creating Cool Web Pages with HTML, 2nd Edition. I found it extremely helpful and easy to understand as I knew nothing about HTML before reading your book. I had only one problem with your book, you never mentioned how to actually put a web page on the Internet. Do I need the Internet Assistant program in order to do this? I borrowed your book from the public library and they told me that there were "no disks available". Are there any ways to put a web page on the Internet that do not require extra software?"
First off, that's a pretty old book by this point. The most recent reincarnation of my HTML book is Creating Cool Web Sites with HTML, XHTML and CSS, which is quite a bit more up-to-date. But, you have the book you have, so let me try to stay focused!
The examples that would have been on the disk used to be found off my older edition archive, but I've removed them due to the more recent editions of the book I have. Sorry 'bout that!
In terms of how to get your first page up onto the Internet, you can definitely do that without having to buy any additional software. The subsequent editions of the book included this material, variously as part of one of the early chapters or as a standalone appendix. The appendix of the last edition of Cool Web Pages is online here: Building Your First Page - A Primer.
That should get you going. Good luck!
