THE CROSS-PLATFORM GUIDE TO CREATING ORGANIZED, EASILY MAINTAINED WEB SITES

Reading, MA - Three expert Webmasters show readers how to build robust, yet easily navigated Web sites in Web Weaving: Designing and Managing an Effective Web Site, a new book just released from Addison-Wesley. Covering the three major platforms for Web services - UNIX© , the Macintosh© and Windows© (NT and 95) - this book shares the tools and techniques to build complex Web sites from the ground up.

Web Weaving shows how best to organize and present information, cater to user's needs, build in maintenance schemes, plan for growth, and implement security measures in their sites. A variety of software for creating and administering Web sites for all three platforms is examined, including HTTP servers, HTML editors, reporting and maintenance tools, and more.
