|The Seven Keys to
Effective Web Sites is the product of many hands. Our gratitude goes out
to all who : have been so supportive and encouraging. There have been
several individuals who deserve special thanks.
At PTR Prentice Hall, our executive editor, Mary Franz, continues to be an
inspiration. Mary knows her subject, understands the software, and has
willingly committed herself to the support that goes above and beyond the
call of duty. We have been privileged to have worked with Mary since 1993,
and look forward to many more opportunities to do so. In fact, it was Mary's
suggestion at Fall Internet World '95 in Boston that led to our turning a
seminar entitled "Seven Habits of Effective Web Sites" into the book that
you now hold in your hands.
Camille Trentacoste, our production editor, has a magical way taking our
prose and screen shots and transforming them into the book you now hold in
your hands. Gail-Cocker Bogusz, Meg Van Arsdale, and Don Martin have created
a set of graphics that does a wonderful job of enhancing our prose. We are
Martha Williams, our copy editor, always has many important and useful
suggestions to add to our writing. Martha's attention to detail is
impressive, and she adds that special touch that causes our prose to be
tighter, clearer, and more readable.
There were a number of technical reviewers of The Seven Keys to Effective
Web Sites. We are extremely grateful to them for the time and attention that
they paid to early drafts of this manuscript. Their support of the concept
was appreciated, and their suggestions for improvements have, hopefully,
been incorporated into the text.
As always, we are grateful for the help and support that we have received
during the past few months from the personnel at PTR Prentice Hall and
others. Even with all of this help, we and we alone, are responsible for any
remaining goofs, glitches and gaps. Please be sure to let us hear from you
if there are any suggestions about how to make the next edition of this book
