Adobe's Pagemill program is probably the best if you want to use something
fairly flexible and easy, however the downside of the program is that it
won't let you directly edit the HTML code - and there really is no
substitute for the control you will have in your design by actually knowing
how HTML and the WEB work. I would start off by reading Laura Lemay's book,
"Teach Yourself WEB Publishing with HTML in a Week" - published by SAMS
(hands-down, the best HTML book out there - Eliz. Castro's "HTML for the
World Wide Web" is a great resource though, after you have learned a bit).
Also, the most recent issue of "The NET" magazine has a large section
devoted to cool design tricks once you know a bit more.
