WEBPAGE-MAKING
There's plenty of free software that can help you create your webpage. Of course, some of these programs lack the fancier features of commercial products. HTML stands for hypertext mark-up language, and is the code behind all Web pages. It uses tags within the visible text of your Web page to tell Web browsers how to display the page correctly. Masochists can even write the code themselves in a simple text program such as Notepad. I've listed the html tags for various Latin characters. The Web Developer's Virtual Library (WDVL); HTML Writer's Guild, HTML Goodies; Webmonkey; Devhead; Developer, and HTML Quick Reference pages will be of help. But an HTML editor helps automate the process.
Freebie programmes on the Internet include: Stone's web writer, Web Scrapbook & BBEdit Lite(for MACs).
Or look for others at tucows.

Get your Microsoft TrueType Core Fonts for the Web (Andale Mono, Arial, Arial Black, Comic Sans MS, Courier New, georgia, Impact, Times New Roman, Trebuchet MS, Verdana).

There are fancy fonts at Jasc's Paintshop Pro

FTP stands for file transfer protocol which is a way of transferring files between two computers on the internet. When you have finished designing your Web page, it is no use just having it on your computer, it needs to be published on the Net for the rest of the world to see. FTP programs can send your finished files direct to your Internet Service Provider's (ISP's) computer. Many HTML editors include an FTP facility, but you may still prefer to use a dedicted program, such as Cupertino or Smart FTP.
Beginners may have to iron out a glitch or two when first uploading their web page, either finding the exact directory in which to put the file, or finding out which file extensions (.html or .htm) work best on the ISP's system. In these cases, it can be helpful if your ISP's help desk is familiar with the FTP program you are using.
