If you are creating your web page for the first time, it is recommended that you go to each section in the order they are presented.
Creating a New Page and Adding Text
There are a few different types of links. You can have a link to a different page in your account, a completely different page on the Internet, or to a different section of your current page (commonly known as targets or anchors).
To link to another page you've created:
To link to an external page:
To link to another section in your page:
To do this you will be using both Targets and Links. Targets allow the page (whether inside the same document or a linked document) to be repositioned when the user clicks on a link. For example, a table of contents at the top of a document can be composed of a set of links. If the user clicks on one of those links, the document will quickly be repositioned to the appropriate part that the user is interested in reading.
First you need to create your target:
To select a background image:
**Note: As you can see in the example above, using an image as a background can make it considerably harder to read the text on your page. If you'd like to use an image, try a background image with color and texture, but nothing too bright or distracting.
One of the most important steps to creating your page is saving it. To save your page, click on the Save button on your toolbar.
The first time you save your page you may get a window that asks you for the Page Title. You can enter whatever you'd like here -dashes, spaces, commas, etc. When you access your page on the Internet you'll see the title in the top left-hand corner of your screen. When you're done, click on OK.
The main page that you want people to go to should always be named index.html. Your other pages can be named anything, but it's best if you use just one word, all lower-case letters with no spaces.
Enter the filename and click on Save.
When you are finished creating your page, you need to publish it to allow others to see it on the Internet. Do not use Netscape Composer's FTP because it is not secure which is required by our server. Be sure to save the document to your computer.
