Review:

PageMill 3 for Macintosh and Windows: Visual Quickstart Guide is a comfortably compact volume that is easy to hold while sitting at the computer, and it features concise and straightforward instructions on every aspect of the application. Each page has text side by side with screen shots of the commands in action.

Because it avoids complex operations in Javascript and DHTML and has an interface similar to common word processing applications, Adobe PageMill is a Web development application that appeals to users with little or no experience in Web design. However, elementary directions are labeled "Tips" and set apart from the main text, which allows more advanced readers to skip past them.

Readers get a basic overview of the Internet and HTML in general and then learn about PageMill 3's interface. The book then shows how to create pages, edit and format text, insert images and plug-in objects, create and edit tables, add links, use frames and forms, troubleshoot their HTML, and manage an entire site.

As opposed to the author's previous edition on PageMill 2, this book features cross-platform instructions. One caveat: since PageMill 3 varies so much between Macintosh and Windows, the doubling up of commands and menus could be confusing despite the book's clear and thorough captions. Slow and careful reading at these stages is advised.

As with other Visual Quickstart Guides, PageMill 3 for Macintosh and Windows: Visual Quickstart Guide is meant to serve as a reference, not just a tutorial. One can access needed information through the index or the table of contents or by flipping through the labeled thumb tabs. Appendices show all toolbars, menus, commands, and keyboard shortcuts, thus making PageMill 3 a complete and practical manual. --Angelynn Grant
