    I use "Web Easy" and I am not very computer Savy. It was easy to figure out. I make web pages and post them without too much trouble. It cost me about $35 if I recall.

      Depending on where you put your site, you can use a CMS (Content Management System) such as Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla, etc. which is essentially a framework of a website all ready to go upon install. Then you simply add content and never have to deal with code. Most good hosts will have a one-click install of these things so you literally can be up and running in minutes.

      Now, having said that, each of these has quirks which makes them better/worse at some things depending on how well you can work with them. For instance adding a gallery for images may be more difficult. And they seldom come out of the box with everything you need - meaning you have to install plugins and whatnot.

      The old school way of creating html pages on your computer with something like Dreamweaver or Frontpage is also an option, but seldom looks good unless you know exactly what you are doing.

        Do you have the web space and you need to make the pages, or do you need a whole hosting solution?

        If you need whole hosting, you can go with Google Pages (http://pages.google.com)

        My dad uses it and likes it - I've never used it though.

                Crimson Editor is much cooler than notepad, though -- I have done a good bit of ASP and PHP in that one.

                I'm a sysadmin, though, so I'm more of a "street coder" than a professional programmer.

                  Emacs is the best text editor ever. But I go well with Gedit as well. But then, we are talking about Linux. In Windows I would say... hmmmm... well... I only use Windows for playing games

                        For *nix I can speak enough vi to get by... emacs always seemed like overkill with keyboard shortcuts.

                        Also like pico/nano... though for some serious stuff I actually installed crimson editor under WINE for the heavy lifting.

                        Hm... also recall liking one called xinit or something like that.
