First if you want to learn HTML here are two great websites even a complete idiot would find interesting. This is where I first learned HTML.
This website will also teach HTML and has an online editor so you can see the results of what you are making. Really helps a lot.
Second, you cannot get away with making a webpage without using HTML as this is the language that the entire Internet is written in.
Third, I agree DW is a beautiful program. I use it all the time. I aquired an "offsite backup copy" through a file sharing program called Bearshare. (But you did not here that from me). Search for Macromedia products and Dreamweaver will come up.
However if breaking the law is not on your to-do list then I have used this free program and its actually quite nice, not to mention easy to learn. Its called HTML kit found here http://www.chami.com/html-kit/

BUT, this thread is about doing it the easy way. Personally, I do all my web page designs by hand coding. I love it though. I also have NVU, a WYSIWYG Editor. It has bugs if you start to do fancy things with it. You want a basic easy web page, NVU or its equivalent is the way to go. Enough said.

Very good choice, but expensive for beginners. I'm trying to give the ones that have no coding experience or absolutely refuse to learn html coding a choice to use programs that will at least get them started. I'm sure if they enjoy what they made easy enough, somewhere down the line they will get the initiative to learn coding.
Macromedia Dreamweaver is probably the best choice. When using it though, sometimes the page can be abit wide and looks poor, so don't put lots of things on the same line because it won't automatically jump to the next line. Bare that in mind
There are a lot of free hosting sites that give you a choice of which online editor to use, a HTML Editor or the Visual Editor. Bravenet.com is one of those.
All this is a matter of choice, but for beginners, it's nice to know what the options are and use of freeware is a given before you invest in the expensive programs for web design. Search the web. There are so many static pages out there because people lost interest.
There are so many free online tools to choose from too that allow web page design to be done.

Sorry I have not replied much towards my own topic, I'm battling the flu since Monday, and its just getting worse.
But I think I'm going to go ahead and stick with CSB/CuteSite Builder, it is an awesome program, and only cost 60+.
And Yes, I would love to learn HTML coding, but just don't have the time for that at the moment...
But when I do... You'll be getting all the questions lol
I cant wait till I can show ya... I'm really excited about it.. I finally get to use my graphics I bought.
But... I'm going to the doc's tomorrow if I can get in... This is just a nasty little bug that wont go away no matter what I do to get rid of it..
I even tried to overdose on orange juice and still nothing.
But anywho... Thanks for helping hun... I so appreciate all that you and everyone has tried to do to get me going in the right direction.
There is a lot I have to learn about HTML coding, and a lot I have to teach the geeks about speaking in blonde terms lol
