Some knowledge is helpful when creating a web page.
A simple page can easily be created using a tool such as Front Page.
There always comes a time, however, when the code generated by such
a tool must be modified manually. A minimal background with html is
necessary at that point.


Suggestion:
Look at the html tutorial on the Web Design & Web Hosting forum(on this site).
Do a search on the net for other html tutorials.
Do search on the net for Front Page tutorials.
You will have to select tutorials that reflect your level of expertise.
Invest some of your time reading the tutorials. Have fun!

you can also sign up to various sites which offer free accounts where you just answer a whole bunch of questions and they do the coding for you!

it's a good way to start, so you might try geocities (yahoo) and tripod/lycos, which I believe have What You See Is What You Get type programs imbedded into their free accounts!

other than that, I learnt by going to my favourite webpage, clicking View>>source, and playing around with the text file that opens: the html coding is in that file. You can save it as an html file on your computer by just choosing a name and putting .html after it (change the box at the bottom from TXT file to 'show all files')

Then you can delete bits of the code, save and see what happens when you refresh the page!

And, yeah, tutorials are always a good idea! :tazz:

good luck!

One place that I use for great free tutorials with interactive examples is w3schools.com. Used with other tutorials, one can learn plenty to get started.

I believe freewebs.com will help you set up a site that way too. I've used them several times in the past but I build my own sites with dreamweaver. I am pretty sure you can do the 'answer questions and let them do it for you' program too tho.

I have found that this site is very helpful --> http://Dave's HTML Code Guidewww.davesite.com/webstation/html/ If you scroll down for a little bit you will see Basic Tutorial MiniChapters , looking through those, and reading them should help.

I messed up a little bit putting that link on there. Just click on where it says Dave's HTML Code Guide, and that will bring you to the site.

You might also try using a WYSIWYG Editor like NVU. No coding involved unless you want to do it that way. It will also publish your files unless you use something like geocities.com or bravenet.com hosting for free. Then you have to use their respective File Manager and Uploader service.

If you want to learn HTML for free, then check out :

1) HTML Code Tutorial Site
2) Web Design (Can sign up for free email courses)

There's a LOT more out there. Plenty of free stuff. Just ask. :tazz: LOL

I recommend you buy this book:

http://www.cookwood.com/html5ed/

It may be a little outdated (published in 2003), but it's great for beginners AND helped me solidify my HTML prowess! And no, they aren't paying me to advertise :tazz:

Some basic HTML knowledge is useful, but anyone can create a website using a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML editor. There are a wide variety of free and commercial applications from FrontPage and Dreamweaver to TSW, Nvu, and BlueFish.

Also, depending on what you want to put on your site, you might look for a host that offers Fantastico. It's a script that installs many popular applications like photo albums, forums, blogs, portals and e-commerce with just a couple clicks. A complete list of available scripts can be found here: http://www.netenberg...ico_scripts.php

Now how did I miss this one out of probably 10 million plus on the Internet? :tazz:

Thanks. Gonna check this one out as it sounds great. I use Matrix Y2K Website Studio 2005 and NVU. Tried FontPage, but my main Web host started having problems with the extensions.

Well I moderate a pretty neat HTML site, a bit kiddish but it does the job well. It's http://lissaexplains.com and there's a forum if you need further help.

When I started HTML I was introduced to FrontPage as well, but what's the fun in that? I really think going to understandable and popular html sites is the way to go. Eventually you'll become such a whiz at it you can start doing PHP, C#, C++, etc...
