  2. save the above file as index.html in a folder named myWebSite on your computer
     (this is an "html" file format, that you must select in the filetype selection box)
	 
  3.  edit the file:
      change the names and addresses and photos and othre stuff to your info 
      especially in the title
	  WARNING!!!! be careful what you put on the web like your address or phone number;
	  especially if you are a woman or under 21;
	  there are mean people out there !!!
	  email addresses are safest
	  
  4. take some digital photos size them to about 200 x 300 pixels or 300 by 200 
     or 200 x 200 save as medium sized jpg files 
	 save your photos in the myWebSite folder on your computer
	 (you need to be sure to name the photos the same as the names you have in the 
	  index.html file)
	 
  5. get a space on the web from your Internet service provider or a paid provider; 
      if you use your service provider they will probably provide you with free space for a 
	  web page it will be like www.geocities.com/yourname   ; yahoo email users can get a 
	  free page on geocities.com !  or you can buy a domain name like yourname.com and pay 
	  a web hosting company  to host it.  there are many to choose from 
	  simplehost.net and godaddy.com are good ones
   
   6. transfer this page and your photos to your web space via ftp (see herbs ftp section)
   
   

good luck!!!
have fun!
