THE WEB IS BECOMING AN INTEGRAL PART   of our working and playing world. Being able to develop information on the web might be a job skill, a class requirement, a business necessity, or a personal interest. Unlike any other previous medium, the ability to use HTML allows you to connect with millions of people, as you would a journalist.

HTML provides unique way of describing and displaying information. The elements of HTML describe what your information is, not how it should be displayed. HTML will let you describe this piece of information as a header, or that piece of information as an address. It will not let you describe this text as being a specific font or justified left or right. The challenge is to provide professional page layout and design without using the traditional tools of old printing standards. Sound like a paradox? Not really. All it involves is a bit of trust.
