This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Well, firstly I would whole-heartedly recommend you to either learn HTML/CSS/JavaScript or install one of the million of Content Management Systems (CMS) available, most of which would allow you to install themes or somehow else customize their look. You would even be able to build a custom theme though it would most likely require learning something about the above mentioned technologies.

Building websites in FrontPage-like programs is sooo like year 1998 :)

Secondly, there are some WYSIWYG HTML editors available, for example

It's not a program, per se, but if you have a Google account you could always use Google Sites to easily create a website in your browser and for free, with pretty much no coding necessary (though you can still tweak some of the HTML yourself later if you feel like it). Probably the best part of this is that since your site will be hosted by Google and the tools run in your browser, you can use it to work on your site(s) on any computer with Internet access. In fact, this is what I'm using right now for a hobby project of mine.
