I'm good with computers and all, but for some reason website development isn't interesting to me. However, a customer of mine has recently requested my help in creating a website. It looks like I will have to learn how to make a webpage anyway. :) Here's the deal:

I'm not asking for someone to make the website for me. What I would like is to learn a bit of simple HTML codding. What I would like even more is if someone could point me to a web creation program that is SUPER simple and FREE so, preferably, I could help potential customers make a website without me writing a bunch of code. I know how to program in Visual Basic 6.0, so I am somewhat familiar with coding. I know that HTML code is probably very different, but I'm sure I can catch on. The problem is finding the time to learn. That's why I'd like a simple program that could do stuff for me without me having to write code. :)

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks :tazz:

Hi computerwiz12890,

Heres an example of a page for you...
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<title>name of your webpage</title>
<bgsound src="your background music.wav/.mid" loop=infinite>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
body {
	background-image: url(Your Background image.jpg);
}
.style4 {
	font-family: "Arial";
	font-size: 18px;
	color: #003366;
}
.style5 {
	font-family: "Arial";
	font-size: 46px;
	color: #003366;
}
-->
</style>
</head>

<body>
<div align="center"><strong><span class="style5"><u>Your page 

heading</u></span></strong></div>
<BR><BR><BR>
<div align="center"><strong><span class="style4">YOUR PAGE CONTENT</div>
<BR><BR><BR>
</body>
</html>
Also check out this list of tags-(examples and explinations)
Maybe, give Microsoft's Office publisher a go (Chances are that you already have that installed). You'll be suprised at how easy it is to use and there is no need to know the code with it (although you can enter html code if you want). Just open it up and click on Web Sites and E-mail.
If your customers are a little more eager to learn then I would suggest Macromedia's Dreamweaver as it has the versitility of both html coding and user-friendly customisation of webpages. Init you will find lots of tools to uplift the appearance of your customers webpages
