Q&A

Q1:I want my own dot-com, as in www.steve.com. How do I get one o' those guys?
A1: You need your own Internet domain, which is a little more ambitious than first-time Web authors are ready for. But by now, you're probably ready (if you have the cash) and certainly motivated. You learn how to get a domain in Hour 24, “Developing Your Authoring Skills.”
Q2:What if the HTML standard changes? Will my page suddenly not work in browsers that conform to a new standard or support new extensions?
A2: Updates to HTML are backward compatible; in other words, when HTML changes, new tags and attributes are added, as are new ways to do old things. But older approaches and tags still work indefinitely.

In Hour 23, you'll learn about testing your page's HTML online. In Hour 24, you'll learn that HTML is not only still evolving, but it's also morphing into something new: XHTML.

Q3:How do I update my page when it changes?
A3: That, too, is coming in Hour 23. First, you need to learn how to announce your newly published page to the world; see Hour 22.
