Get yourself a web-designing package, such as Front Page. Then you to know as much HTML as most people know SQL (i.e., none!).

As for going live, you need to find somewhere to host it - I used to have a site on a free hosting service but has since shut down. Don't know of any others but check out geocites.com and homestead.com - the latter even has its own software to help you design pages.

Then I'm a big girls blouse. If you use FrontPage you'll have to learn how to edit html in Notepad because it makes so many mistakes. Not as bad with the new XP edition but the 98 version I paid full price for was crap. Then they wanted another 60 quid off you for another CD to fix it, typical microsoft. Homesite was pretty good when I had a trial version a while ago, it could check the html to make sure it would work when published. It's more of a html writing program than a wysiwyg package like FrontPage.

One thing you could do is steal other people's html using VIEW - SOURCE in IE. A bit of cut and pasting here and there and you'll have a template page ready to add your own words.
