Some final words...

I hope you have found this little e-book useful and informative, and easy to understand. You should, by now, have successfully created a website (of at least one page) and uploaded it to your host server, and been able to view it using your web browser.

Updating your files is simply a matter of changing the files mirrored on your own computer and uploading (overwriting) the files on the server with the new versions.

Like anything that is new, you will need to practice your new web design skills to develop them further. I have every confidence that you will become completely proficient, and learn to enjoy the work as much as I do!

With this in mind, I am including a series of useful links, and recommend that you check them out as you get the time to do so.

Onward and UPWARD!!!
