Any web designers that I could run a few basic questions past?
I built website geared towards SEO methods so I suggest you do the same.
Try using a program like NetObjects. As you use the drag and drop interface you can then peek at the code and tweak it.
Netobjects is geared towards both the professional as well as the beginner. My favorite was Version 4 but I am sure they must be at least version 14 or something.
