One other thing I just thought about. There are some programs out there that
will take a ged file and convert it to html so all you have to do is upload
it. This
would get you up and running right away and you could tweak it later, as you

You say you want to put something up quickly so I'm thinking WYSIWYG (what
you see is what you get) editor.
Next question: how much do you want to spend? Third: how much time and
effort are you willing to invest?

If you have a lot of money to throw around go with Dreamweaver. MX, I
believe, is the current version,
but you may be able to get an earlier version for less. FrontPage is another
well - known WYSIWYG editor
that can be found in a stand alone version for much less than Dreamweaver
but is nowhere near as good.
As has been mentioned here, it also comes bundled with some MS Office
versions.The free version,
FrontPage Express, is stripped down so there is a trade - off.

There is a learning curve associated with these programs even though you
don't have to know how to code html.
So plan on taking a tutorial or two. And if you are really serious about web
design you will at some point need to
"get under the hood." This isn't like driving a car where you take it into
the shop when it's broken - you are the
mechanic. I would suggest two editors (freeware) for download. Install them
on your PC and play around
with them whenever you get the chance. The help menus in both will link you
to tutorials and other learning
resources. Before you know it you'll be able to code this stuff by hand.
Hey, if I can do it...

I don't know if you have Microsoft Word installed on your computer, but I
just found a Webpage Wizard that will guide you through all of this. I've
been using File Manager (in Rootsweb) for over a year now on my own pages,
but you have to do all the html. There are some wonderful tutorials on how
to do this.......and its been my experience with this list that when you
need some help or guidance, you will find it.
