err HTML. I use dreamweaver but its a commerical package and is very expensive. The best way to do it is HTML though.

Seriously though unless you know what you're doing its very easy to make websites that are so god damn awful. Making a good website requires a lot of skill and a good eye for detail.

There is two many cheap DIY stuff on the market. You could try using some templates.

cant u use the uni email? compose a new message, load ur attachments, but press "send later" which will save as a draft. that way theres no limit on how big the file is, bcoz uve not sent it. then open up ur uni email at uni, then voila, mission accomplished

You could go to http://www.geocities.com and use their pagebuilder tool. It will look like crap, but it's fast and really easy.

So you don't actually want to create a website at all. You want storage space.

You could try apache or Microsoft Web server or somthing like that. You don't really need to go that far though. Just sing up for some free webspace.

I think I am too much of a cheapskate for that. I'll try this Apache thing - my friend was on about that.

In theory it is simple in practise its not as you have to condend with the fact your ISP some times changes your IP address even if you're on broadband. Then if you have domain names attached the server it causes real problems.

For that reason I just pay for my hosting.
