Creating a World Wide Web Site Tutorial
After an introduction to the fundamentals of the Web, we begin by explaining how to configure your Web server. The server that is used as an example is NCSA's httpd, a powerful, freely-available server for UNIX systems. Users of other servers will find this section useful from a conceptual standpoint, since most of the general features are common to most servers. A brief comparison of the strengths and weaknesses of a variety of servers will be offered as well.
The tutorial continues with an overview of HyperText Markup Language (HTML) -- the basis for Web documents -- including a discussion of both the current version, HTML-2, and the increasingly-popular HTML-3, as well as Netscape extensions such as tables and backgrounds. Differences between the two HTML standards and numerous "gotchas" will be pointed out. You'll learn how to author HTML efficiently and effectively, getting the most from the powerful new additions while maintaining backward compatibility.
In addition to HTML authoring, you'll learn how to create interactive Web pages, including forms, CGI scripts, and creating dynamic documents. The tutorial also includes an overview of other Web site issues including publicity for your new Web pages, security and privacy, legal issues, statistics-gathering, and server maintenance.
Each tutorial participant will receive a comprehensive package of materials, including a full copy of the tutorial presentation and reference materials.
The tutorial materials assume that all attendees have basic experience as an Internet user as well as some basic knowledge of UNIX system administration and UNIX commands.
