Review quote

Praise for the First Edition: "If you want to set up your own Web site but have no desire to be a "Unix weenie", WebMaster Macintosh is the book for you. With a sense of humour lacking in nearly all other Internet books, LeVitus and Evans guide you through the process of setting up a Macintosh server and getting it connected to the Internet...What's really nice about this book is that it gives tips about how to structure a site so that it doesn't become unmanageable...I highly recommend this book to beginning Web masters." --The Net
