Web-Design

There are many techniques and tools you can use in designing web pages. You may want to use a generic software package such as Microsoft FrontPage or Dreamweaver. Alternatively, you may prefer to design the pages from scratch. There are advantages and disadvantages of each method. Certainly the generic packages take less time to learn, but they have limitations. 

A search on Amazon for HTML books today yielded 860 to choose from. Which one is the best one for you? I have generated the list below to help you decide.   In addition I have listed some outstanding resources that include web design related links where you can access tutorials, obtain free backgrounds, and download useful software.
