  • Note: This book is reprinted several times per year, and the publisher is pretty good about correcting errors. This means that, with luck, your copy will already have fixed a lot of these mistakes.
  • On the back cover, the UK and Canadian prices are switched. See if you can get a store to sell you the book for C$18.99, which would be quite a deal.


  • If you use Windows Me (Millennium Edition), Internet Explorer 5.5, or Outlook Express 5.5, get The Internet For Windows Me For Dummies, which has more detailed instructions about how to connect using Windows Dial-UP Networking, read and send e-mail using Outlook Express 5.5, and browse the Web using Internet Explorer 5.5.
