Hi - my question will be considered simplistic compared to others here, considering the knowledge on this board, but I'll ask anyway.

What would you advise for someone who wants to set up a basic, personal web page - that is: something free, simple, easy to format, etc. I know absolutely nothing about this, so I'd appreciate any concise information anyone could offer.
