Take Control of iWeb '09, 3rd Edition

Book Description

If you're stuck on iWeb 3's basics or unhappy with amateurish results, turn to Web wizard Steve Sande for step-by-step instructions for building an iWeb site, ranging from the basics to how to create eye-catching effects and include special elements such as blog posts, podcasts, Twitter feeds, Google calendars, and more.

Version madness? This ebook is about iWeb 3, and it covers iWeb 3 regardless of whether you installed it from iLife '09 or iLife '11 (there was no iLife '10).
