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.
