Hi Lisa,
I really don't want you to have to switch hosting providers, but I do know of a 
company where you can put up a website without any html knowledge. This would 
give you more time to focus on your content.

  Subject: blind_html intro and first question



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


  A title


  A welcome sentence


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


  A copyright blip at the bottom.


  How do I do this first page and what do I call it?  Then how do I create the 
links on the page which would direct the user to subsequent pages.  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.  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.  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.  



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