Essential Web authoring material by me

To anyone interested in starting to create Web pages, I suggest the following meal:
cool appetizer: So you want to create a home page?
starter soup: Getting Started with HTML
main dish: Learning HTML 3.2 by Examples (see separate short description of its ingredients).

According to good hypertext habits, the main dish contains suggestions for cheese and desserts, i.e. links to further reading. However, my HTML 3.2 material is fairly old, so you might find links below more useful.

    Sketches
