The instructions in the book for running Netscape Navigator off-line in Windows 3.1 call for using MOZOCK.DLL. Since this seems to no longer be available from Netscape's web site, you can download it here:
I've also included two special templates on the CD-ROM, a Frames template that you can use to set up a Frame web site similar to this site, and a Tables template for creating an online newsletter. You can find these templates on the CD-ROM in \EXAMPLES\TEMPLATE\FRAMES\ and \EXAMPLES\TEMPLATE\TABLES\. If you don't have a CD-ROM drive, you can download these templates from these links:
To use the Frames template, just create a directory for it off of your main working directory for creating HTML files (C:\HTML\FRAMES, for instance), then unzip FRAMES.ZIP into it. Next, load FRAME.HTM into your web browser. Next, just follow the displayed instructions for using the Frames template to create your very own super-duper Frames web site, just like mine. Have fun!
To use the Tables template, create a directory for it and unzip TABLES.ZIP into it. Load NEWSLTTR.HTM into your web browser. To edit it, just load it into Windows Notepad or an HTML editor, substituting your own images and text.
This part of my site is dedicated to helping readers of my web publishing books get some notice for their web pages. If you have read my book and created a web page that you would like to have listed here, just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. To check out my readers' pages, go to:

Outline of My Book
This was originally supposed to be one of the appendixes in the book, but got pulled at the last minute to help squeeze down the size of the book. Unfortunately, however, Prima neglected to change the cover, which trumpets that the book "Covers Dynamic HTML." So, if you have been looking for where the Dynamic HTML is in the book, it isn't there. Instead, I've placed it here:
An Introduction to Dynamic HTML
You've learned HTML, created some practice pages on your local hard drive, and have even arranged for some web space from an ISP (Internet Service Provider) or IPP (Internet Presence Provider), but now you're stumped! "How do I get this dang thing up there?," you ask. Well, in the vast majority of cases, you FTP it. The following is a how-to on using WS-FTP, one of the best FTP programs available, to transfer your web pages up onto the Web:
