Ask Doctor Web About everything you could possibly want to know about building a web site.
Creating Killer Web Sites Considered a heritic by HTML purists, David Siegel pushes the limits of HTML to get the page layout he wants. With the advent of cascading style sheets, he and the purists might find some middle ground. This site mostly promotes his book, but there is some good stuff here.
Net Tips for Writers and Designers Another David Siegel site. Some of the information is dated, but still good.
All Things Web In contrast to David Siegel, this site promotes the use of standard HTML and simple page layout as a way to make a site as usable as possible to as broad an audience as possible.

Graphic Programs and Filters
|Jasc SoftwareHome page for Paint Shop Pro.|
|HomeSiteThis is not a graphics program. It is, in my opinion, the best HTML editor on the Internet today. Well worth the shareware fee.|
|Blade ProBeveling filter, works as well as Eye Candy's Inner Bevel.|
|Filters UnlimitedShareware utility available for download of 150 filters. Also, you can download any "8bf" filter into a database in the program (this includes all the Filter Factory Plugins). Once you have your filters in databases, you can move them around, rename them, etc. Then, you can use the randomize button to test effects and when you find an effect you like, you can save the preset for future use.|
|Picture DicerA great little freeware program that allows you to "dice" large graphics into smaller graphics for quicker loading. Dices your graphic and then writes the HTML to reassemble it.|
|Filter Factory PluginsMost work fine with Paint Shop Pro.|
Shareware and Freeware Fonts
|The Dingbat Page A huge assortment of dingbat fonts. One of the most up-to-date dingbat sites on the internet.|
|Astigmatic One EyeThis is where you can download the "Button" font I refer to in many of my tutorials.|
|FontenniumA great collection of old-style (antique) fonts.|
|Font DinerA great collection of retro style fonts. Some freeware.|
|Fonts & ThingsA good collection of fonts.|
|Acid FontsAnother good collection of fonts.|
|Font PoolGood collection of fonts, nicely categorized.|
|Font FreakDingbat and text fonts. Pretty good collection.|
|Font Management Utility I highly recommend using a font management utility to handle your fonts. These utilities allow you to easily install and uninstall fonts, categorize fonts, print fonts and view fonts. My favorite is Typograf. This program is inexpensive and very powerful. I keep most of my fonts in folders and open the folders in Typograf when I want to use a particular font. For dingbat enthusiasts, this program is your dream come true. You can view your fonts and print your fonts in "keyboard" format (i.e. each dingbat is shown above the appropriate key on the keyboard).|
|Font Finding Hint: Go to http://www.google.com and enter "Free Fonts" in the search engine. You will find so many free font sites you may not see the light of day again for a week!|
