I want to create a Web site for my private practice (I am a speech pathologist). I would like to use software that will help me easily make a Web site – I want my Web site to include pictures and video. Does anyone know of software (preferably free software) that will walk me through constructing a professional looking Web site and that will use html code that is universal for most browsers? My girlfriend constructed me a Web site using software called IWeb (on Mac), but the Web site looked horrible once I uploaded it.

I would really appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

If I was going to write a web site and was not going to code the whole thing by hand (like I normally do) I would use NVU http://www.nvu.com/ it follows the standards fairly closely, so things should work on most browser correctly. My choice of NVU being it is the best free program I know of.

If you need a free image editor I would recommend http://www.gimp.org/

Hope that helps.

I know you said 'preferably free', but you can always try programs like Dreamweaver, Fireworks or Flash (from Macromedia/Adobe). These programs are fairly easy to use and can produce awesome results. (They are a bit expensive, but it's truly worth it).

Otherwise you can try online website-builders. I don't have any personal experience with these, but the results seem to look good. Try http://www.site2you.com/, http://www.website-builder.com/ or http://www.designer360.com/. Most of these only offer free trials though.

The only other one i can think of at this moment is Nvu (which Michael suggested).
