Default Making a web site

About 10 years ago I created a web site using the Earthlink Trullis templates. This works for me, but I think I should go back to the beginning and create a new web site. What very simple software is available to help me create a web sit? I use Microsoft XP, Out House Express, IE, Word perfect, a OpenOffice and EXCEL.

I've run 5 websites with www.1and1.com and still maintain 3.
If you're satisfied with a template based site and are creative with ftp you can do a lot with ZERO installed software on your computer.......aside from an ftp client and you don't have to learn one stitch of html.......

Here's what I use for my page:

Although I have a couple of tiny issues with it, it works for me.

I use MS publisher 07 for the site in my sig. Very easy to use on the front side, but has issues on the backside making things really fit. I used it because I had it already installed. I kind of regret making that decision now, rather then using a third party program as publisher 07 is loosing support and there are things about it that annoy me. I did some HTML coding in school, and a little on old webpages I did, but never enough to be proficient and remain proficient, and I am a visual person so much prefer wysiwyg over lines of code. What little HTML I use is either for a couple of specific items or to clean up issues (which I can't really do in publisher).

I am giving consideration for various reason to actually rebuilding the site in a new editor to see if I can fix a bunch of nagging glitches.

The problem with free stuff is they all seem to disappear after a time and then you're stuck starting all over.......
A bit of creativity goes a long way.......check 'em out.

well, I just spent a while messing around with Komposer after a couple of tutorials and gave up. I get the table layout idea, but I couldn't get it to actually put content where I wanted, how I wanted. Actually, I felt it was the opposite of publisher. I think I'll keep looking.

For ftp (file transfer protocol) I use a free program called filezilla (http://filezilla-project.org/client_features.php) and it works great and is faster than using the in-house ftp programs. I also use Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 to design my sites. Trying to learn to design them using CSS and it is tough for this old farmer to learn all that new stuff.........but it keeps the brain active.
