When I started looking into creating a webpage I started with free software like Netscape Navigator Gold or Microsoft FrontPage Express, that are not available anymore today. So I switched to Microsoft Frontpage , but I am not very satisfied because it can suddenly do things you don't want. So I think I have to look at Macromedia Dreamweaver or Adobe GoLive .

Anyway I needed some ideas what to put on my page. Although I found some templates, I noticed that content comes first. Later on I realized that you have to present it nicely. First I looked at how not to do it with Web Pages That Suck by Vincent Flanders who also helps you Fixing Your Web Site. Later on I found a book that helped me to present it with Learning Web Design by Jennifer Niederst.
For usablity I read Steve Krug's "Don't make me think", who claims that it is not rocket surgery, webpages about usability are e.g. useit.com by Jakob Nielsen and Useable Web.

Although this is a newer page I still used some animated gifs to get some color.
