Surfing the Web--you are number
BA103--"Surfing the Web" with Netscape Browser
--also Read the book on WWW and Netscape.
I don't know of a way to do this in other browsers, so we will do it
in Netscape as an example of how to work with bookmarks and make link pages
THIS DOESN'T WORK in Microsoft's browser!
You must do it with netscape.
Here are some interesting sites to look at. Browse and make a bookmark
file on your A: disk called your_name.htm. make sure it's not named bookmarks.htm,
or I'll get 95 of them and not be able to tell who did it.
Add bookmarks for about 20 sites. use these sites if you want and at
least five others of your own choosing.
save the bookmark file by going to bookmarks/edit bookmarks (Bookmarks
/Manage Bookmarks in Netscape 7+)
be sure you are in the edit window and go to file /saveAs (Tools/export
in Netscape 7+)
save the bookmark file someplace where you can find it, then
Email the bookmark file named your_name.htm to me as an
attachment using your favorite email system. Thus, your bookmark file should
have about 25-30 bookmarks in it to get credit. Look at the bookmark file
by opening it in Netscape before you send it, so you are sure you have
the right thing. Don't email a bunch of webpages. The
video shows how to save the bookmark file and reopen it to see
that you have the right thing. Note the Video shows earlier versions
of Netscape, so note the small differences in menu structure, above.
This is not a hard or a long exercise. Please do it yourself. If you
submit something that has other people's information instead of yours,
then both parties may be denied credit. Have fun and let me know about
anything interesting you find.

StarOffice is a MSOffice-compatible suite of applications that is available
free for download (56 Megs! don't try to put it on a floppy) and personal,
non-commercial use. You can also buy it for $39.95 in a package as a CD.
I'd be interested in anyone's experiences with this. It's touted as a lot
easier to use, without the clutter and slow performance of MSOffice. http://www.stardivision.com/index.html
