I have MS publisher, and need some help in designing a multi-page website.

Any pointers on how to assemble a site, for the guy that knows nothing about HTML?

You want Microsoft Frontpage, not Publisher for making websites.

CompUSA, safe to say between 100-300 I guess. If you have Office 2003 Professional, it is included.

I've got office 2003. I may have only did a 'standard' or 'basic' install. I'll have to dig the disk out tomorrow....

You have got Office 2003 but what version...

FrontPage is in Office 2003 Professional not the basic version, I believe it may be on the second disc.

Well you are going to need them...

When you put in the second disc I believe you get the FrontPage install option along with some other stuff.

No kidding. Try out Nvu. Although the newer versions are a vast improvement M$ Publisher and Front Page put out unecessarily busy code.

Not only that, but the not all web host servers can take frontpage uploads since it does not use standard ftp uploading. Check with your webpage host to be sure that frontpage is supported.

Well, that is because Publisher is a program for making catalogs, brochures, programs, etc.
