A web page is a single page that can be displayed on the Internet. The best format for a web page is with HTML code in its background. But a web page can be a Word document, a text file, a PDF file or other format.
It is easy to add graphics and images in an HTML page, thus making it look good.
A website is an organized group of web pages that is on the Internet at a given web address or URL. Like www.websitename.com.in for example.

Even though you are making a tutorial on java, the easiest tool for animations is Macromedia Flash. You can use it to simulate what would happen from the java programming and use of applets.
Unless your tutorial is on developing animations in java, Flash is quicker to use for demonstrations.
Best wishes in your project.
Building dynamic site with PDF files
May 16, 2005
I am a webmaster and I have to put a database in a existing webpage. Actually it is a library with search engine, but the database is all in PDF Files and it should be kept in PDF files.
I would really appreciate if you could give me a name for a software, which I can buy or even a Java Script.
Many thanks in advance

I assume you have all the PDF files in a folder and the database accesses them by name when called up from the search engine or a form. Typically the database is queried using a language like ASP, ColdFusion or PHP. In any case, your server must be able to use one of those languages.

HTML is used as the basic structure of all web pages. It is very simple and must be known.
ColdFusion is a markup language CFML that allows for dynamic pages. It can do much of the same as J2EE, VB.Net and C#.Net, but with much simpler coding. The down side is that a ColdFusion server is required.
The .Net languages can be cumbersome, but the fact that they are from Microsoft gives them an edge, and more companies use those technologies than any others. VB.Net is the most popular.
Although I like working in ColdFusion, the .Net route has the most jobs available.
Create hyperlink in footer
August 20, 2003
Can you suggest a way to create a hyperlink in the footer. I want to add a Table of contents in the footer so that an user can directly go to the Table of contents from any page he is in.

In the newer versions of Word, there should be a "Create a Hyperlink" icon on the top menu. Then the user can use CRTL-click to jump to the TOC. I believe there is a similar feature in FrameMaker. It is straighforward in web pages.
