the trick to HTML is to realize that it's a markup language, meaning you're just formating the text to look interesting using <tags>. Similar to making text bold, underlined or different size in M$ Word.
You learn one tag at a time and see how you can use that to make your text look more interesting.
Otherwise you can use drag&drop editors such as Adobe GoLive or M$ FrontPage. One of the more popular free webspace providers will be geocities. They also have a java based drag&drop editor available
And that sounds REALLY confusing. I will PM u for tutoring.
