Also, because my company place our corporate site on my shoulder they have approved me to take courses involving website update HTML and flash. So I did some research and found this company that trains and give certificates. They are pretty reasonable rates too.

DreamWeaver is definately the best route to take. It's simple to use and has a decent interface. STAY AWAY FROM MICROSOFT FRONTPAGE!!! It's a terrible program, and not all free webshosting sites have the correct frontpage extensions installed.

However, whatever program you decide to use, make sure you do familiarize yourself with some basic HTML code. You can do some amazing things with templates, but it's always best to have a little knowledge of HTML code.

You can find tutorials on this on the web. Start out small, and try not to overwelm yourself. Make some basic pages, then as you become more familiar with making webpages, work your way up to something a little more fancy.

I've taken HTML classes (along with other programming classes which can also help) and I've been using DreamWeaver for years. I still don't know everything there is to know about designing, but you learn more each day.

Also, you can find free templates already created on the web. Grab one of these and they can also help you learn some HTML code and how to minipulate (sp?) things. Good Luck!!!

dreamweaver is good. i started out on frontpage back in 2000 and found it to be easy to use. the only problem (that someone pointed out) was that not all extensions were supported by the free hosts. that was a couple years ago, not sure if things have changed now though. these are wysiwyg (what you see is what you get) programs so they are very easy to use. i dont think its really necessary to know programming though. obviously if you are a professional developer thats a different story but for a personal website its probably not the best use of your time to learn that stuff. helpful for troubleshooting but generally not a necessary requirement.

I agree Frontpage is easy to use and I started out on it too. But compared to Dreamweaver.... wow! I've been using dreamweaver for about 4 years now and I have yet to learn everything it can do, but I was able to use it to make quality web pages fairly quickly.

Great question! I need to know the same thing so I can have a page up-and-running in a few months. I'll be watching this thread.

Learn me up! :-B
I could use some tips too. Yahoo Webpage Builder doesn't do the trick for me.
