I use basic html coding (very simple to understand one lah!) plus a few javascripts I copied for other sites that I like... all put together on the simple notepad. That way, I have full control over what is on the site, without all the extra rubbish that web editing softwares add on.

Have a look at this web authoring site for starters...

No need course lah, for basic web page you can just get a html book and learn from it. Need just a pc/laptop with notepad and a web browser. (if u need to buy one, sms me and i'll sell mine (just brought a few days back, done my webpage liao) to you at $30. The title is "The complete reference, HTML & XHTML, Fourth Edition" sms me at 91192975 if u really want it. :D

If you want something fancy, try php (free), javascript (free) and if you need to create database with your webpage, try mysql (free too). You need to activate your iis or your web server from your windows.

Maybe you state what you want to get from the website and we can see what kinda stuff you should consider.

Eg, do you just want to display information? - html should do

or you want interactive web page (which keeps or does not keep data)? - i like to use php. This site is created with php, can also consider asp, perl, etc, but generally need you to learn programming.

or you want very graphics intensive one that will need you to learn some graphic intensive web designing program ....

My experience, html is very easy to learn. With a good book as reference, you should be able to come out with something nice easily. If you cannot go pass html, forget about the scripting part. However, i think there are tools to help you create webpage without writing your own html.

Depends on what u want lah.

if u want to do that u have to go for ASP or PHP coding i think... harder to learn but should give u the same results as CS here... good luck!

one step at a time.
If you wish to achieve the things you have mentioned within a short time, then I advise you to get someone to do it for you.

Creating a website is easy.

Code:
<HTML>
<HEAD><TITLE>Hello, World!</TITLE></HEAD>
<BODY>This is my very first web page. <A HREF="http://www.clubsnap.org">This</A> is my favourite website.</BODY>
</HTML>
Creating a good and aesthically-pleasing website requires a bit of skill. It goes beyond the HTML and whatever coding and touches into usability and design.
