interested in suggestions for tools used in creating web pages

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone

             I am getting ready to launch an academic website and wish to start off with an easy to use web page creation tool.  As an important consideration here, I must say that I will be a beginner here without knowledge of HTML or Java coding.  Therefore, the chosen tool will need to be able to automatically plug in the needed code for special formatting of text, pictures, links, and multimedia clips behind the scenes or in the background.  In addition to this, I would like for the chosen tool to also be capable of uploading binary files such as text files with special formatting, jpg's, mp3's, etc.  I guess that would get into using my pc as an FTP client for lack of a better way of putting it.  However, if there is a web page development tool which has an integrated FTP tool, it will certainly be most helpful as opposed to using an entirely separate tool for that function.

            Any shared thoughts, suggestions, and tips regarding my future goal of creating a web page, it will certainly be appreciated.  

             Thank you

            George

Without knowledge of HTML or JS, why don't you simply use Wordpress?
Get someone to setup the site, then you can add your own content. No need for ftp.

HTH,

Hello

           Thank you so much for the direct download link for WordPress.  If it would not be too much trouble, could you provide a tutorial link for using WorkPress  which can be printed out and used as a reference?

            Thanks again.

The Codex is always a great resource: http://codex.wordpress.org/New_To_WordPress_-_Where_to_Start
And the lessons: http://codex.wordpress.org/Category:WordPress_Lessons

A bit much for printing, though.

Lynda has an OK video tutorial for Wordpress: http://www.lynda.com/WordPress-tutorials/WordPress-Essential-Training/154417-2.html
