good free webpage editor for me to build a website with. i have no idea what i'm doing so i need something simple to use

a free website (ie not your own dot com?) - in which case why not go for one of the big ones like myspace/piczo/lycos tripod/ - they all have built in online webpage editors.
However, if you want your own site as a dot com or dot co dot uk, you would have to pay a company to host it and some of them like 1 & 1 offer easy online webbuilding programs with their deal. Or else you can build your site off line with free programs - here is one click here and then upload it to your online space. Look in pc mags as they often give older versions of webbuilding programs (check out netobjects fusion) for free too.

Ignore 'java' and 'flash'for the time being. Wysiwyg simply means a program that you can design your site with that shows you what it will look like as you go along - rather than one where you have to write it all in code.. Download the serif link I said before - it's a bit like Publisher. Nvu posted by ACx is also free but some people might think it's slightly harder for a total beginner. Also,as I said, have a check on pc mags. Does your webhost not provide an online webbuilder? It is an easy way to start, at least.

I like NetObjects Fusion, but it is a little hard for total beginners, but if you want to try it, I have a forum and tutorial website at click here.
NetObjects can be bought at click here, and is only US$200.
