Keeping it simple ...
Simple is good, especially when you're developing your first Web page. Apart from being easier to design, a simple (aka basic) web page will load more quickly in any browser. Here and now we will show you how to build a simple page. Later on, when you're ready to take the next step, we will provide you with the tips and techniques to design your site with all sorts of extras including how to add interactive elements like rollovers, shopping carts, and polls.
Lets get the 'techie' bits out of the way first
HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is the language of the Web, the code that governs every Web site. But while learning HTML is valuable if you want to become a web mechanic, using a basic WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML editor is a far easier way to create a simple Web site. You enter text just as you would with a word processor, drop in images, and add links--the software creates all the HTML automatically in the background.
This is what eWrite is all about, providing you with a WYSIWYG editor + some tools and advise, to get you off to the ground. We do lots of other things as well but if you want to get started on developing your web site we can provide you with an approach and a range of software to make the journey less painful.

The directions are quite simple. For now lets put aside any thoughts about learning HTML or technogy and just go and great a simple web page. All you will need to provide is a pencil and some paper.
Once you've learned the basics, you can go on to use more full-fledged Web design tools (at eWrite, we have a range of options, as do our competitors) - but for now lets keep it simple and move forward one step at a time.
