You can find interesting HTML snippets of code (that you can insert easily in iWeb) to improve your web pages at these web sites:

If you google html code + something that you would like to add to your web page, (like a clock), you will find tutorials or information that you can copy and paste into your web page in order to achieve what you want.

It’s not 100% guaranteed, but you should try it!

Besides HTML, you may also look for Javascript code.

Please try this Firefox add-on if you need to download and convert online videos.

If you’re new to the MLA format to refer to sources of information, try the free online services

They’ll help you ensure that your bibliography/works cited list is in the correct format. Just fill in the information you know about the source, they help you with the rest.

For more detailed information check these resources from

I have also found a very interesting blog about information literacy called BiblioTech Web.

Another joke from Redmond. Read on if, for some weird reason, you want to know about the future of Windows.

This reminds so much about Windows 98 Second Edition! I never understood why I had to pay for an update as though it’s an huge upgrade…

Anyway, over to the links:

Read this article from Australian PC Authority Magazine website.

More on Windows 7 from Paul Thurrot’s Windows Supersite.

One website has a positive bias toward Windows 7, or is it trying to be unbiased?

The other one is negatively biased against Windows 7.
