First, html could be written using a simple text app.   For writing code, I would recommend using Sublime text.  Its very nice.  
You could get it here http://www.sublimetext.com/2     .  

Also, since you say you are a beginner.  You could learn more about HTML, CSS & Javascript http://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_intro.asp .

There you could learn the basics, but I recommend it because it is written in a very simple and easy way to learn and get started.

Have fun!

For basic Mac web site building, check out the three products mentioned in this blog...
http://mac.appstorm.net/roundups/internet-roundup/building-your-own-website-sandvox-rapidweaver-or-flux/
Apple used to market iWeb as part of their pre-installed iLife suite, and the three products mentioned (Sandvox, RapidWeaver and Flux) are its natural heirs.
It's expensive, but if you want heavy duty web authoring software, Adobe Dreamweaver works very well.
There are several levels of web editing tools for OSX

If you want to edit your HTML using HTML text only then I'd recommend Sublime or TextWrangler or BBEdit however this is really not the place to go if you want to work visually.

There are several FREE WYSIWYG editors
SeaMonkey - http://preview.photographers.ie
Amaya - http://www.w3.org/Amaya/

The best commercial packages I'd recommend are
Flux = https://panic.com/coda/
Coda = http://www.theescapers.com/flux/index.html

Personally I'd not recommend Dreamweaver anymore .. years ago it was one of the only WYSIWG editors but it has become bloated, over complex and overpriced (that's my opinion anyway as a 20 year web developer veteran)

You might be interested in this software, Macaw http://macaw.co/ . It's a good wysiwyg editor. If I didn't already know HTML & CSS like the back of my hand then that would be the editor I would use.
