The appearance of any computer tutorial owes to the hard work of a lot of people besides the person whose name appears on the cover. The readability of this tutorial owes to the constant watchful eye of Alice Turner. Technical accuracy was put to the test by Jean Ross. This tutorial would never have been started without the work of Claudette Moore and Eric Stroo.

The greatest thanks, however, goes to Chris Anderson, who (among other Microsoft employees) patiently helped me through several technical twists and turns despite the considerable demands on his time.

In addition, I want to thank the people at TopherNet Internet service providers for their assistance in setting up and maintaining the help web site at

Thanks to Dr. Maxine Thomas and Dr. Jay Harvey for their support.

Finally, my authoring such a tutorial wouldn't even be conceivable without the constant support of my family, both immediate and extended. Thanks. Comments
