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.

You also may want to consider one of the free web site hosting sites Tripod.com, Angelfire.com, Geocities.com and the like they have some rudimentary tools for making a site if a professional look is not your highest priority or you can write your own code and upload it as they offer free hosting as well (you do have to contend with their advertisements).
