I'm pretty much in the dark. Html certainly looks learnable, and I agree I should, and will, learn at least the basics. Thank you for the webmonkey.com suggestion. I read the most basic tutorial - very well written for when I get there.
However, right now I would like to get a page up on my site. I built a page using iWeb. As far as I can tell I followed every direction for Cyberduck. I got my FTP servername, username, password (there seem to be two I have to try willy nilly until one works. My site is still an error.
I went to Wiki, the getting started page. It tells me I need an index page "just create an .html document, and name it index.html." Ok, that completely lost me (create?, name?, upload? [Cyberduck again]). I obviously don't know enough to understand the simple directions.
That's why I'm looking for something for complete novices. Picture books, anyone? I'm sure I can learn and then ask questions here, but I have to know something first.
