If you're quick, pop down to a news agent and buy a copy of PC Pro (CD or DVD, doesn't matter) which has a full copy of NOF 8 again this month. You can't get cheaper than £3.99 for £150 worth of semi-professional standard software. It is quite easy to use; in fact, very easy once you get acclimatised to it. I might also recommend the open-source Nvu (pronounced enview) which is very capable, but perhaps not as simple for newbies like yourself. I certainly feel more at home with NOF.
