If you're thinking about putting yourself on the Web, some of these links may prove useful in teaching you how and giving you access to the tools you need. Start with making sure your browser is the best it can be, then learn HTML from the pros. Come back to GeoCities for all your resource needs.

Browsers
Ok, first things first: Your browser.
Browsers come in all varieties and disk sizes, and each has its pluses and its minuses. We recommend to first find out what your computer can handle, and then asking your friends and co-workers to see what they prefer. Or, you can be more bold and download one and test it out.
BrowserWatch - (This is an important source for the latest information on browsers. Check here periodically to make sure your browser is as updated as can be.)
After you've gotten your browser, you should check out some of the following resources and optimize your experiences:

As many people know, there exists an unwritten standard of behavior on the Internet. Called "Netiquette", it has survived since the ancient times, when only computer geeks lived on the web, and thrived for the unsuspecting "newbie" (The new person in their domain) to break their unwritten codes, and into these modern days when everyone, from the Smiths to the Jones, and even the family around the corner is on the web.
For information about Netiquette, see what one of our homesteaders says on the subject:
