Re: Anyone found a good web authoring or newsletter package for executive use?
Your latter comments fit the bill more than the former. I am looking to
ease people into using the web as a way to communicate vital knowledge,
where the author has not spent any (recent) time 'programming' or the
like . . . so tends to feel they cannot do it, but is definitely happy
to put in the time to learn in a straight forward way.
If you like . . . what method would you use to get your grand-mother to
document her needle work skills for posterity? (please forgive me for
the presumptions here . . but I hope it sparks further thought from you
and others). We may not have a way to help in this extreme case but
there are lots of people who studied and got uni degrees then went into
'management' and lost a lot of the ability to 'do it for themselves'.
Many have become computer literate to some extent, but could not program
or even write a macro (perhaps they did/could 20 yrs ago).
I really want to help this group.
