Hi Bill, If you just want to put together good-looking quick and dirty webpages that don’t need database interaction, you might want to use Apple’s Keynote software. You can put together a presentation with links from one page to another, and just export the whole thing as HTML. It works really great for what it is. Try it out!
Good luck!
