Berners-Lee, Tim. Weaving the Web: The Original Design and Ultimate Destiny of the World Wide Web by Its Inventor ([San Francisco]: HarperSanFrancisco, 1999). 226 p., includes glossary.
|Chapters 1 to 9 give an overview of the development of the Web, from Berners-Lee's "play program"
in 1980, through the birth of the Web in 1990 with URL, HTTP, HTML, server and browser working on the Internet
within CERN, Geneva, to the setting up of the World Wide Web Consortium at MIT, Massachusetts, USA, in 1994. The rest of the book presents his views on
web monopoly, privacy, copyright and his proposal for a Semantic Web.
With its headquarters at the Laboratory for Computer Science of MIT, the World Wide Web Consortium is cohosted by INRIA near Versailles, France, and by Keio University in Tokyo, Japan.
A first suggestion is to take a course on writing HTML documents, then do some related reading.
The next suggestion is to find a server that can launch your HTML pages onto the Internet. This may be a free service if you are associated with an institution with server facilities, or else there is a fee if you use the service of for instance a telephone company.
The third step is to upload your HTML documents from your computer to the server. You may then also wish to publicise your Web pages or sites with the help of such indexing services (the search engines) as Google, etc. These search engines accept META tags in your HTML files. With these tags your web pages will be searchable in those search engines under keywords assigned by you.
