Another guide from O'Reilly in the popular "cookbook" format. The wide range of topics covered includes domain registration, setting up a web server, site design, page design, text formatting, counting visitors, and e-commerce. "Recipes" are each divided into three sections: problem, solution, and discussion. These recipes are used to teach and solve problems. For example, among the elements of page design are discussions on whether and how to choose a template, on creating a color scheme, on adding new pages to an existing web site, and on creating and controlling internal and external links. Those involved in web site implementation will find this a very useful volume. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
