About This Handbook

This Handbook was produced using Word For Windows version 2. The graphics were captured using Paintshop Pro. Paintshop Pro was also used to reduce the colour depth and to alter the colour of the images so that they were more suitable for inclusion in the printed version of the Handbook.

The Handbook was converted to HTML format using the RTFtohtml and RTFtoweb conversion programs.

About The Author

Brian Kelly is the Head of User Support, Computing Service, University of Leeds. He first came across the World-Wide Web (WWW) at a workshop on Internet tools organised by the Information Exchange Special Interest Group, University of Leeds on 9th December 1992. In January 1993 the Computing Service installed the CERN httpd server on its central Unix system - this was probably the first WWW service provided by a central service in the UK academic community.

Following an unannounced visit from Robert Cailliau, one of the WWW co-developers from CERN in March 1993, the Computing Service became convinced of the importance of WWW. The Computing Service contribution to the University Open Day, held in May 1993, was centered on the World-Wide Web: for example the Open Day programme was available on WWW.

Brian has given presentations about WWW at the universities of Aberdeen, Bangor, Bradford, Kent, Oxford, Sussex and Manchester Metropolitan University. He gave a poster presentation at the first WWW '94 conference in Geneva and gave a paper on Becoming An Information Provider on the World-Wide Web at the INET 94 / JENC 5 conference in Prague in June 1994. He ran a WWW Tutorial at the Network Service Conference in London in November 1994.
