>how to place text on appropriate image.

That can be done through your image software or you can make a background image and place html over it.

You don't really say what you want to accomplish with your Internet site. Essentially, ALL sites have text and images and images with captions...

For example, you can create a free web site on www.wordpress.com and it is relatively simple to create hierarchical static pages - you don't have to use it as a blog.
