I recently got a prepaid plan with an ISP that provides a web page for
personal use. Unfortunately, they do not provide any assistance on how
to go about actually creating the web page itself.

I have MS FrontPage from MS Office, but it’s definitely not

Where can I find info and tools to help a Newbie figure out how to
make a web page that doesn’t suck ass?

Hi markabe!

Hooray for web designers who DON'T want to suck!  Here are a number of
helpful resources for you, some of which I used myself when I was
learning how to create a decent, non-sucking page:

HTML:  An Interactive Site for Beginners

HTML Goodies:  The Non-Technical Intro

(Follow the various links on the left for the technical stuff,
including terrific primers.)

Introduction to HTML

NCSA - A Beginner's Guide to HTML

All of these will help you learn and understand Hyper Text Markup
Language - the tags used to create web pages.

For interesting tools, I suggest you start with a good WYSIWYG (what
you see is what you get) editor, to allow you to not only practice
what you've learned, but allow you to see how things look as you go
along.  My favorite, and the favorite of my seven year-old geek son,
is CoffeeCup HTML:

CoffeeCup HTML

CoffeeCup offers a free 30 day trial version, as well as a fully
functioning version with extras like JavaScript snippets, pre-written
DHTML tricks, CGI scripts, a complete HTML tag library, a color
picker, and the ability to publish straight from editor to server in
just a few clicks.  The full version is $49.95

For free WYSIWYG editors, you might want to look at:




Good luck!

My apologies, as I should have made it clear in my question that I
have absolutely no desire to learn HTML, or any other programming code
for that matter.

Hi again,

Learning HTML isn't required with CoffeeCup HTML editor.  It comes
with a number of pre-made templates that you can easily alter to suit
your needs.  The templates are pre-formatted, you only need to replace
the dummy text and file names with those of your own choosing.  If
you're feeling adventurous, you can change background colors or text
colors with a click or two.  HTML Area likewise requires no HTML

Alternatively, there are two other "no HTML knowledge needed" editors
that may suit:

HotDog Express

EasyWeb Editor

Still, if you have the time and inclination later, I highly recommend
that you look into one or more of the noted HTML tutorials.  Learning
a few tags will give you more design flexibility for your site.

Hope these help!
