If you want to see how much your collective help has helped me here is what I did today. I will take it back down tomorrow and put back the under construction page from the host site so I can work on it some more. I am thrilled to go to bed feeling a great accomplishment and a good start. Special thanks to Jeffrey and Neimar. <>

Also, here is the tutorial from w3.

    My name is Lisa from Arizona and I am attempting to put up a
    website but haven't a clue of what I am doing.  Here is what I
    have managed so far.

    Bought a domain name and a 2-year package with
     They have templates on there website builder but I have found
    them to difficult to use with JAWS version 9.  I had assistance to
    get the templates up but couldn't edit them and that's a big problem.

    I got filezilla and have managed to connect with my ftp so I could
    work on my website manually because I think that would be the best
    way to have control over my content.  I downloaded from web
    Braille the only book I could find on html written for html 4 and
    xhtml which if memory serves was written in 2002.  Thing is I'm
    using kurzweil to read it so the syntax doesn't come out right for
    me to get the code.  My husband more of a novice than me says I
    can just write it in ms word 2003 and save it as an html file than
    put it up that way.

    Don't, ever! and I mean ever! use MS Office products to do
    webpages! They'll screw them up. Personally, I just use Notepad to
    code my pages and the HTML by hand.

      I want my website to look something like this at least the
    mainhome page.

    A title

    OK, well hhere you go


    <<head>title Whatever you want </title></head>

    A welcome sentence

    OK, just write anything.

    7 links or so in a list the typical about us contact us and others
    for example.

    OK, then you would do

    <h5 Navigation</h5>


    <a href= "filename.html"> WHome</a>

    <li> <a hrref="Filename.htm"> Contacts</a>

    and etc.

    A copyright blip at the bottom.

    Copyright whatever 2009


    How do I do this first page and what do I call it?

    See example above. Call it index.html  Then how do I create the
    links on the page which would direct the user to subsequent pages.

    See example.  As I mentioned I have ms word 2003, and notepad and
    wordpad.  Do you have any suggestions on what I can read on the
    internet to learn this stuff or should I switch to a different
    hosting company.

    See the W3 Schools tutorials; they are are a great help.  I have a
    30-day guarantee?

    I am afraid that I will spend so much time figuring out how to put
    up my content that I'll never get anything up on the web.

    It takes a while at first, but once you get the hang of HTML and
    stuff, you'll be able to snap pages out like this.  My website
    will need to be updated daily with new articles and links and I
    don't want it to take forever or I'll not be able to write.
     Itwon't take forever.

    Ok, that's it.  Any help or suggestions any one has is greatly
