Dear Reader,

Have you ever been surfing websites and thought to yourself, Geez, I can do better than that!? Do you have content—whether it's a Top Ten list, a shopping list, or a tribute to Franz Liszt—that you want to share with the wired world? Has your boss told you to "Get our company on the World Wide Web now, before it's too late!" and you want to learn HTML before it's too late for you? Would you like to cash in on the web boom by not only creating your own site, but by having your site make you a little money on the side?

If you answered "Duh, Author Boy!" to any of these questions, then have I got a book for you. Here in The Complete Idiot's Guide to Creating a Website, I teach you how to create beautiful websites in no time flat. Yes, HTML sounds like scary stuff, but it's my goal in this book to show you that it's really quite easy and that anyone can build a website with his or her bare hands.

Whether you want to get your web feet wet with a humble home page, a basic business site, or even a simple storefront, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Creating a Website shows you everything you need to know. I truly believe that this book offers you the easiest and most nontechnical route to getting a website up and running without any fuss and even less bother. See you on the web!
