This solid step-by-step tutorial introduces you to Microsoft's Web publishing package. The book is divided into seven lessons (each of which should ideally take a day to complete) that walk you through the fundamentals of FrontPage 98, including the latest features and advanced functions.

The new book, Teach Yourself Microsoft FrontPage 98 In A Week , is one of those unusual texts which captures your attention from the start. It doesn't matter whether you're using FrontPage 98 for the first time or you've been using it since it was released as a beta. It is a comprehensive text, covering everything from active components like applets, and suggestions to make your webpages interesting, to the manner in which images may be manipulated with Image Composer 1.5. Mr. Karlins' pages have tables and illustrations that walk you through the process of starting, animating, uploading and maintaining web pages, in plain English, not drowning in techno-speak. He has successfully reached a balance between the needs of both the webpage beginner and expert. Pages contain ample explanatory text, presented in such a fashion as to delight the novice and fully inform the most experienced webmaster. In short, if anyone is interested in creating webpages in FP 98, this is the best written, and most complete book I have found. I highly recommend it.

David Karlin's "Teach yourself Microsoft FrontPage 98" is terrific. I purchased the book on a Thursday afternoon and by Saturday I published my site on the Internet. I do not know HTML and I didn't know FrontPage 98 but with Mr. Karlin's well organized and detailed explanations I was able to learn it quickly.
Mr. Karlin's book covers everything you need to know to produce terrific websites, from themes, to frames to working with forms and integrating MS Office with FrontPage 98, it is all there in "Teach yourself Microsoft FrontPage 98."
I am especially appreciative of the chapters that cover the image composer, how to create interesting graphics and text effects to jazz up my website.
This book works both as a tutorial and a reference and I know I'll be referring to it frequently as I continue to play with website design.

There are two reasons I bought this particular book. The first is that I needed some additional information about using FP98. The second is that David Karlins (the author), promises e-mail support with questions you may have. In fact, he prints his direct e-mail address in numerous places. Well, I had several questions, and after extensive researching, just couldn't find the answers in the book or on his Web site. So, I e-mailed Mr. Karlins with my questions. At any rate, he responded within a day but not with the answers I needed, but an invitation to check out his Web site again! Can you imagine? I feel like he hoodwinked me. Now I don't know if he just doesn't know the answers, was promoting his site some more or a combination of both. Anyway, a decent book, but if he treats you like he did me, you'll find the complete experience to be lacking. Take care:-)

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is the one to get. April 5 2000
By M. Dog
I have been given the task of creating a new web page for the public library where I work, so immediately sought help. I consulted others in the profession that had built web sites, and this is the book they recommended. They were certainly correct. This book is presented and formated in excellent, quick chapters that are very lucid. As an added plus, the author, David Karlins, provides readers with a web site and email address where they can get further help (the author is quick to respnd, too!)

3.0 out of 5 stars No information on the autothumbnail utility Aug. 31 1998
I had already published a web page using FrontPage 98 before I read this book. I was having a problem with the autothumbnail tool and thought that the book might teach me how to get it to work properly. The autothumbnail tool was not covered at all in this book. The author does provide an email address in the book and responded within 5 minuetts of my inquirey. David Karlins said that the program had a bug in it. Has anyone found an update from Microsoft?

When I look for a computer book it is important to me that I feel as if the author is next to me helping me through each task. That is how David Karlins writes in all his books and FP 98 in week is no different. It is clear, helpful,reinforcing after each chapter and as a bonus David provides a great section on using Image Composer something that MS dosen't even include in its manuel that comes with the program. I highly recommend it for the beginner or Pro.

Have had FrontPage 98 on my computer for 6 months and never used it. Bought David's book and have been very impressed. Has made starting my own perosnal web site much easier and fun than if I had tried to start using FrontPage98 without knowing anything. Look forward to reading more of his books. Great content for people who want to use FrontPage98 to author webpages, but do not want to make a career out of learning the program.

5.0 out of 5 stars best book on Front Page - lotsa fun, too! July 8 1998
By A Customer
I couldn't believe how easy it was to learn FP98 with Dave Karlins - his book was truly free from extraneous stuff - just the facts, delivered with wit. It actually took me about 3 or 4 days to go through the book - I can't believe I'm saying this, but it was so exciting to learn a computer program with Karlins. Now I am creating killer web sites in a matter of minutes while my HTML buddies are plugging away at silly code. Haha!
