Part I: First Steps, First Web Pages > Getting Started with a Web Authoring Pro...

Hour 2. Getting Started with a Web Authoring Program

When you work in a WYSIWYG Web page editor (like Netscape Composer, included with this book), your page looks (with minor exceptions) just the way it will look to most visitors on the Web.

That's a powerful convenience; without it, Web authors have had to guess about the appearance of their pages while fiddling with all the HTML code. To check their work, authors had to open the file in a browser and then go back to the HTML code to make adjustments. With a WYSIWYG editor, you can see and do it all in one window, live and in color.

This hour examines the general operation of Composer so that you know your way around when you approach the specific authoring tasks coming up in later hours. At the end of the hour, you will be able to answer the following questions:

  • How do I open Composer?

  • How do I fid my way around Composer's toolbars?

  • How do I start, save, and reopen Web pages in Composer?

  • How do I test the way my page will look online?

  • Can I print my work?

This hour assumes that you have already installed the programs from the CD-ROM included with this book, as described in Appendix A, “Setting Up the Programs on the CD-ROM”.
