i dont think you'll find dreamweaver or css a good way to start, try max's html beauty available as a free download that will start you off. The way i learned was with a proggy i cant remember right now but find some simple sights and right click a blank area and 'view source. save it in notpad as this is the html that shows the page. explore eah entry and what it does. check http://www.webmonkey.com/ out for simple explainations.

Personally when I started I think dreamweaver was the first program I used. Basically you want a wysiwyg (What you see is what you get) program. That way you can do stuff graphically... A program like dream weaver lets you see the code at the same time graphically... that way you can make real time changes to the code and see what it does...

Try Coffeecup Easy Web Designer available at Staples. I didn't know anything about web design,and it was easy.

Freewebs?... but that isn't really a program. I recommend HTML, CSS and Notepad. Its the best.

HTML isn't that hard to learn. Its confusing at first but once you get the hang of it its okay. Once you learn that you can expand to CSS which can be fun.

There are a million tutorials online too... so if you have questions there will never not be answers.

went to the library and got a few books on html. I have already started making a website. This is very interesting and fun watching your site take shape. lots of mistakes made. Gonna try dreamweaver once im more familiar with the code. is css the way to go if you have a site with multiple pages? thanks

Pretty expensive compared to some of the more well known hosts on the web.

CSS is good if you have a lot of content that you want to keep all the same. Its a good thing to learn, but if you are only making a couple of pages, probably not worth the extra work... On a large site like say ebay, it makes things very easy to change every page with one change... It can be a very power full thing if used right...

He'll still need to know HTML regardless, but agreed, CSS is worth the effort
