Does anyone know anything about web design? I don't have much time right now, but i'm interested in it. I don't know that much about computers either, but I might have to help a friend build a webpage and design it. If there are any good links or books for a beginner, please let me know!

Google for learn HTML or HTML tutorial and you should find a ton of decent starting points. Basic HTML is simple enough that with some trial and error you should be able to pick it up easily. There are enough free tutuorials that one of them should click with you.

I've always been partial to Web Monkey so I would suggest trying that one first. When in doubt ask questions.

I'm taking a pretty heavy web design class now, ask away. I should know the answer or give you the tutorials I have access to on my school's website designed for us students.

If you have access to FrontPage, this is the way to go. I suggest it to all the family members who want to post their personal homepages because it saves me a lot of headache. You can just pick a template and type the page up as you'd actually view as opposed to learning a markup language. :-)

Thanks for the advice, guys. I'm completely new to this and found a tutorial for html and i'm slowly working on that. I do have Mircosoft Front Page, but I haven't really used it yet. Hey Soop, any suggestions where I should start?

This site has pretty much all you could need:

For designing a webpage, Macromedia Dreamweaver is a phenomenal and the ideal program to use. It offers you an option where you see a blank page and can just type text and paste images or whatever, and it automatically does the coding for the site accurately. ;-D

Dreamweaver is sweet but the cheapest I have seen it is around $330. :-/

You can get FrontPage for around $80 through a site like CNet.
