Need to build a website, and fast...

Hello, am in a bit of a pickle. I need to build a simple, good-looking website very fast, but I have no HTML skills whatsoever. I remember reading a review in a Mac magazine of a shareware program that could build customised, attractive websites. I specifically remember the reviewer being so impressed with the program that he gave it five stars. Anyone know of such a program?

Adobe's 'Contribute' is great - has templates and is .mac / iWeb compatible and it acts as a site manager too

Two quick questions about iWeb. Firstly, how complex can websites created with it be? Can they contain five or six different pages? Secondly, can websites created with it be published anywhere or only on the .mac server?

No html knowledge, need it fast, then I would suggest either iWeb from apple or Sandvox from Karelia. You don't need any html knowledge to use either of those and you can get as complex as you need. Of the two I prefer iWeb but Sandvox has some nice features like custom templets etc. Only your own creative ability will be the doorstop to complexity.. but always remember, simple is better KISS (keep it simple stupid).

You might also try this link for basic, open source templates. Most of them are either valid XHTML 1.0 Strict, XHTML 1.0 Transitional, or XHTML 1.1.
