- This may be straying into OT territory, but while Notetab light will help
you write your pages you still may need a program for manipulating graphic
images for your pages. For that I would recommend Google's free Picasa
For a good but relatively cheap (and small) book on html I would recommend
Elizabeth Castro's "Creating a Web Page with HTML" from Peachpit Press.
A more serious recommendation would be Ian Lloyd's "Build Your Own Web Site
the Right Way Using HTML & CSS" from Sitepoint. This book actually suggest
using Notetab Light. Back on topic!

So far so good.
Double click on the Swiss Flag, this will start NoteTab.
If I remember correctly Notetab with its first installation opens
some windows with names like 'Whatsnew.txt', you need to close these.
At the top click on File, drop down the menu to Close All documents
and click again.
This should leave a blank sheet on the right and a column of text
with some red headings on the left of the blank sheet. At the top of
the blank sheet on the left will be a tab with the file
Along the bottom of the blank sheet are some tabs too, with green
mini icons beside the names. Click on the seventh from the
left 'HTML'. If you're quick you'll notice the text in the column to
the left of the blank sheet has altered.
To start a basic HTML document double-click right at the top 'New Web
page' on the column of text and red headers on the left hand-side.
You notice a wizard will appear and ask lots of questions, the
answers to which you should know if you've read any of the books that
other posters have recommended here. Also a new tab will have
appeared at the top. This is your first web page being constructed
See how you get on and let us know
I forgot the best bit.
After you have filled two wizard screens and NTB has generated some
HTML code for you, the sixteenth icon from the left under the title bar
changes from 'gray-ed out' to a little blue world.
Click on it and you will be rewarded by seeing your web page in your
