Part I: Creating Web Pages > Fundamentals of Web Publishing

Chapter 1. Fundamentals of Web Publishing

The Internet has quickly become so completely integrated into our lives that there’s no assessing the full nature of its value. Along with e-mail and other technologies, the World Wide Web is a huge part of the Internet phenomenon. However, those Web pages don’t get there by themselves. Knowing something about Web publishing is important for most anyone, particularly those of us with something to create, discuss, share, or sell. If you’ve ever thought that you’d like to create a Web page, build a Web site, or just know a little something about how this all works, you’re ready to learn more about Web publishing.

This chapter discusses the following:

  • A brief history of the Internet and the World Wide Web

  • The basics of how the Web works, including the protocols and acronyms you see throughout this book

  • The present and future of HTML and XHTML, including what exactly you need to learn

  • The fact that HTML isn’t as difficult as programming and, in fact, is surprisingly easy to learn

  • Although HTML isn’t programming, Web publishing does offer other levels of complexity, which are discussed here and in later sections of this book
