The "Build Your Own Website!" guide was put together a few months after Penny Rollo [who builds the whole Project HappyChild site] built her first webpages.
A complete novice to begin with [literally no pagebuilding experience whatsoever] Penny had no-one to ask for help when she first took over what was then about a 40-page website [Martin Lockey, who had built the first pages free for Project HappyChild, had been offered a high-powered job out of the blue and gave her two weeks' notice that she would be building it from 1st June 1998 .....]
So it was really a case of "sink or swim". The gift of Corel WordPerfect Suite8, earlier that month, on 7th May 1998 from Channel MarketMakers, was to tip the balance - Penny found she could create webpages she liked the look of and whilst she struggled to make sense of the software at times, simply made notes as she went along so that she could remember whichever ways were successful for building different areas of the site. These early notes [plus a few additions later] form the basis of this guide.
Six years or so down the track, there are some 10,800 pages on line and the Project HappyChild site measures around 360Mb in size. Penny finally made the transition in late January 2001, to working entirely in html [programming language] - except for when she's creating an entirely new area, for which she still does the initial set-ups in WordPerfect Suite 8 because this is still such a visually-dynamic program to work with.
Charities and schools should be able to get this software very cheaply (£39 + VAT/carriage was the Academic Rate, when last checked).
