Netscape is one of the major web
browsers, together with MS Internet Explorer and the AOL browser.
Most webpages are written in the HTML (HyperLink Markup Languages).
learn and use well.)
Using Netscape has advantages:
The software is free, just download it.
It has two main components: Netscape (the browser) and Composer for
creating web pages: it has a very clean interface, is simple and fast
to use -- it looks very much like MS Word.
It creates pages in a smaller file size (so they transfer more quickly)
than pages that you create in Word and then save in Web page format.
Its only disadvantage, to my knowledge, is the spell checker. I like
the one for Word better.
Way around this: type your text and spellcheck it in Word. Do not
bother to format. Then copy and paste it into a new Composer Page and
format it there.
You cannot use long filenames for HTML pages. Moreover, no spaces or
characters such as ampersand, apostrophe are permitted, only underlines
to separate words.
Also, the language is case sensitive so there is a difference between a
and A. For example, if you insert a hyperlink to a file named
Table_of_Contents but your actual file name is table_of_contents, your
hyperlink cannot find the file.
