Tricks of the Trade

Creating an attractive and functional web page can be both Easy & Fun.

If you happen to be a person who enjoys both writing and graphics, web page making is an ideal medium that will exercise and develop your talents in both areas.

Software can make the job even easier.

While html purists may shun this lowly route, these days you do not have to know HTML to create a web page.

  • Many Internet Service Providers offer free web space to their members, and to encourage its use, have web-page making software built in.
  • Some Specific Products: You can buy software for your PC or Mac that let's you compose your page on a "get what you see" basis, writing the html code for you underneath. This is the "Look, ma! No html!" approach, and there is nothing wrong with it.
    • Claris Home Page 3.0 for Macs & PCs [tutorial 1] [tutorial 2] [tutorial 3] [tutorial 4] [frequently asked questions] CHP seems to have been abandoned by FileMaker, Inc., the company who took over some of the Claris line. But CHP 3.0 still has a devoted following, and the product may be available for purchase here and there. The Space Chapter Hub website has been made with CHP 3.0
