I remember years back when I made a few websites and did it all in a text.doc.
Wrote all the code and all and someone said...why are you doing that when you can just use a program. Well I did not know of the programs at the time or I would have.
On a side note, if you find a web site you like, that is basic html stuff and nothing too fancy. You can copy the source of it and save it. Then go in and just change the addresses and image titles around.
