I have decided that I need to bite the bullet and create my own
Website.  The primary purpose of this Website will be to self publish
articles that I have written.

I know html at a basic level, but I have no desire to spend a lot of
time messing around with code trying to make something look nice (and
forget about spending hours trying to center a table!).  Nor do I
really want to learn java.  Rather, I'm looking for recommendations on
software that is really, really easy to use.

Everything that I have ever written is in Word, but I don't want
people to have to open up a Word file in order to read an article.

Not looking for research here - I'm looking for recommendations from
your personal experience, and hoping that many of you will post a
quick response.  (Hey, I'm a repeat customer!)

Many thanks in advance!

I recommend using the Network Solutions Easy Designer. Simple Building
Block structure—I use it myself for 3 of my sites. Go to

 [ ] for details.

They offer a free trial demonstration of the Easy Designer on the
site. You can use templates for your pages, or just insert a blank
block and paste in your own HTML/Javascript code your wrote your self
in Notepad, or MS FrontPage or whatever. That’s what I like about
it-if you want, you can write your own code, but you don’t have to—if
oyu’re in a big hurry and just want your article posted fast, you can
just paste it from word into a Text block, and click Publish.

Even if your domain is already registered outside of Network
Solutions, you can still have them host your site.

E-mail  them at  with any
questions. They respond same-day.

Good luck with your web endeavors!

I recommend Microsoft FrontPage. If you're familiar with Word,
FrontPage will make a lot of sense to you.

I can really recommend the fantastic web-editor Netobjects Fusion.
Iīve  built websites with Fusion for several years (professionally)
and itīs by far the best choice. A lot of stuff that has to be done
manually in other editors is automated in Fusion. And itīs rather
cheap, you will get older versions (sufficient for your needs) almost
fo free.

Here's an example of a site created with NEtSol's EZ designer:
