In response to assorted requests and queries, I have written a simple
"Beginner's Guide" to writing documents in HTML. It's up for grabs at at the moment;
comments are welcome (but no complaints about my coverage or use of
the IMG tag that Mosaic supports; it's important internally).

The guide also points to a rudimentary primer on URL's that might be
of interest to Web beginners (certainly the number of people who have
sent me Mosaic bug reports saying "URL '' doesn't connect
to the ftp server", etc., would seem to indicate that basic knowledge
of URL's is not yet a given on the net).
