This program, when you click on the shortcut, takes you to the web, just long enough to open a web document, or an HTML page. It is full of little tricks and shortcuts to get you started in the glorious [NOT] of HTML.

There are 100's of examples, fully illustrated that you can copy and paste, or just figure out where to put them. The shareware version has about 1/4 of the information that is available if you register this program.

On the Main Menu page is 20 categories of information, you can only access 4 of them and some advertisements, like the button that will take you to the author's webpage. You can access The Basics, which is-the basics! You can access Formatting Text, which tells you how to align text, and how to do some things like adding bold text, color and many other things that come under the heading of formatting. Links and Images tells you how to add links, images, underlined or not underlined text and more. The Special Characters button gives you a list of what to add to get all those characters that don't come on most keyboards, like the British pound symbol.

Some of the things you will get if you register are Creating Forms, Mastering Tables. using Frames, Static Backgrounds and much more. 

It is written in language that is pretty easy to follow, I did; I still have a couple of questions but hey, they didn't promise to make me a genius overnight!
