[Note: Teachers, parents and students, you might want to check out this
website ...]
Newsweek, June 14, 1999, p. 16 (in the Cyberscope section on p. 16)

Hey, Mommy, what's HTML?

Recent events have made the Net seem like a scary place for children. Lycos
Network's new Web site, Webmonkey for Kids (www .webmonkey.com/kids),
should help allay some of those fears. It teaches children how to build
their own Web pages through engaging projects and tutorials.

There's even a planning guide for parents and teachers -- perfect for old
fogies trying to keep up with
this new medium.

appeals to parents]
