Good points and great goals, Chuck!
People think it's tougher than it really is. Most word processing programs
today offer the option to save a file as html. And like you said, there
are free web hosting sites out there. Personally, I found Geocities to be
hard to use and navigate, and I wouldn't use their web page making
program. It's much easier to create it outside of Geocities and import it
in with any of the easy ftp transfer programs out there (just visit or for lots of free programs). There are people on this
list who are very good at this stuff and people shouldn't hesitate to ask
for their assistance. My experiences with Sajjad and Martin and others is
that they're generous and helpful when asked.

The saying used to be "Put your money where your mouth is". Now how about
"Put your computer where your mouth is!" :-)
