Downloading the Tutorial Files

This tutorial is always available from our web site


Note that this is always the most current version; numerous copies exist "out there", but this is the only one that we maintain. In the event our server is busy, you may be able to access the tutorial from our two experimental servers:


but be gentle as these sites are really for other purposes.

You may experience improved performance if you download the tutorial files to your local computer, so you are not constantly "hitting" our web server. We package it as a completely self-contained package that can even be used off-line. The tutorial includes more than 750 HTML, image, and media files that occupy about 4.1 MB of disk space.

When you have successfully decompressed the downloaded archive, you should have a folder/director named "Writing HTML" and inside should be two files and another sub-directory/folder that has many more files. To begin, select Open File... from the File menu of your web browser. Look for a file called "start.html" and open it from within your web browser. From there, follow the hypertext link to the tutorial welcome page.

We've provided 3 download sites in case one of them gets busy (It does happen!). If you wish to mirror our tutorial on your own intranet or intenet web server, see our easy-to-read, brief copyright statement.
