Abstract
The World WideWeb (WWW) provides a great opportunity for companies and individuals to publish their ideas, products and everything they would like other people to view. Since the Internet community and the Web are expanding every day, the demand for user friendly Web publishing applications is rising. The procedures that could be followed by Internet users in order to publish content on the web till now, were to either buy and read some books on HTML and have some basic knowledge on Web Servers, or pay an ISP a quite substantial amount of money to do it for them. In this paper we rst justify the necessity of the existence of an alternative method for online web publishing. We then describe the method and a tool, called e-DEDALUS, which can be used by many diverse Internet user groups. An Internet user that has no previous experience in programming, or desktop design, will be able to create his/her own Web site, online. The e-DEDALUS tool that will be described in this paper aims at o ering simplicity, customisability and multilingual support to a substantial number of WWW users.
