    Hello everyone, I have to design a website for my friend. I'm kinda interested in learning how to design a website myself, but it seems really complicated. What would be the best way to get started, learning all that code and such? When I designed a basic website 10 years ago, all I really knew was HTML . Is there a good book to buy?

    Or would you recommend that I just stick with iWeb?

    Thanks!

    it isn't as complicated as it seems. Knowing all that code does make tailoring your website specifically to your needs a useful advantage. If you want an alternative to iWeb, go dreamweaver.

    If you just want to get a website up, and don't need to learn the how of it - try Sandvox. It's template based. Pick the design you like, customize the images for the banner (or dig a little deeper, and you can change the colours). Add content. Sandvox has over dozen different types of pages you can add into a couple dozen templates (or more). The advanced version lets you edit the HTML directly.
