    Hi

    You can find a WYSIWYG editor that will let you do changes without knowing code.

    Free HTML Editor, Visual Web Page Editor: PageBreeze Freeware, Create Websites
    Free HTML Editor | CoffeeCup Software

    (these are what I found with Google, not recommendations)

    For a code reference and HTML lessons, W3 Schools is an excellent free resource.

    W3Schools Online Web Tutorials

    You could also outsource changes you need.

    How complex is the site?

    If you don't know how to edit html, it might be a good idea to just go to Warriors for Hire and hire someone to do it. You can of course find tutorials and attempt to teach yourself html, but that could be a long process.

    Just edit it with something like Kompozer. However, personally i would just attempt to convert it to CMS as HTML is a little outdated now, if you plan the site to be a long term investment.

      I agree.. I've been using Kompozer to edit webpages for a couple of years now, it's very user-friendly (wysiwyg type) and best of all it's FREE.

      This is going to be shocking news to everyone who makes web pages since all websites are HTML. If it displays in a browser it is HTML There are different ways to produce the HTML such as hand coding your own static pages or PHP or ASP which can code the HTML on the fly although it doesn't actually write any code from scratch it just takes code that you supply and inserts it where directed. and there are ways to format the HTML like CSS. A good editor is going to be very useful Dreamweaver is very expensive and there are other editors out there that are free My favorite is Visual Web Developer the express edition (it's free ) and very good and very powerful. However a good editor is a good first step toward learning HTML and CSS and you are definitely going to want to learn HTML and CSS.

        I think that posted was probably referring to a CMS site vs. a static HTML site.

    Learn to use Notepad++ or similar rather than a WYSIWYG editor. Avoid Dreamweaver.

    Use Google to learn some HTML, but this is such a broad question it seems you might need to outsource it to somebody unless your a fast learner.

    yeah there is free WYWIWYG software out there to edit html if you have no clue....however many of these are crap. If you know nothing about html, and still want to edit yourself, then that is the way to go. But you could hire someone on WSO to do it cheap though and save yourself the headaches.

    HTML is a relative easy to learn language and is widely used by many. I recommend learning it when you have a about 3 hours. It makes it easier to fix and avoid mistakes. Once you learn the gist of it, work with the simple notepad editor that you have by default. I write everything from scratch, avoiding problems I cannot solve.

    Internet marketers should have a base understanding of HTML. However, the majority of the internet runs on PHP. PHP is a server side language which in essence assembles and delivers HTML so it can be read in the browser and by search engine robots.

    The reality of using editors like Dreamweaver is that their learning curve can require as much time as it takes to learn basic programming skills. One has to decide on where their time is best spent. Learning a program or learning to program.

    I'm surprised at how many people are actually recommending Dreamweaver to learn html. Most professionals use other editors for good reason, its clunky, it produces unnecessary code, its a WYSIWYG editor so it does nothing to teach you how to code, as it writes it for you. Also, the Dreamweaver browser isn't W3C compliant. As soon as you come across a layout problem in your browser, you can't figure it out as you didn't write the code in the first place. You just get used to the program writing it for you, making a small edit here or there. To learn html properly, do as most professionals do and learn in a text editor so that you can rectify any problems later. I use TextMate on a Mac, but Notepad++ on Windows is great as is a program called Coda. There are a few others but I have only used those three and they all do the job. I have seen job postings asking for Web Designers and in the description it says, DO NOT apply if you have learnt on Dreamweaver. That speaks volumes.

    This is from Wikipedia -

    "Later software was written to help design web pages and by 1998 Dreamweaver had been established as the industry leader; however some have criticized the quality of the code produced by such software as being overblown and reliant on tables. As the industry moved towards W3C standards, Dreamweaver and others were criticized for not being compliant. Compliance has improved over time, but many professionals still prefer to write optimized markup by hand"

    Notepad++ is free, its all you need for Windows - http://notepad-plus-plus.org

    This is what I use on a Mac, its a superb editor - http://macromates.com/

    Another great Mac editor - http://panic.com/coda/

    I use this to upload the files, again free - http://filezilla-project.org/

      Well Put Mr. Monetize,

      Making use of a WYSIWYG is not really programming and it limits you to the capabilities of the editor. While I can program using Notepad, I personally like AceHTML Pro 6. It writes and clean code and writes in the primary three languages I write in. (HTML, CSS, PHP)

      Additionally, as stated above, such editors have their own learning curve and personally i think one's time is better spent learning to program rather than learning a program.

        I don't want to appear arrogant although it may come across like that, but I was getting annoyed at everyone recommending Dreamweaver. I have been building websites for 14 years, and I've worked with a lot of other designers before and they all code by hand. There are obviously designers who use Dreamweaver and thats up to them, but I have seen this argument over and over. You only have to Google "Dreamweaver or Notepad" to see how much debate there is. Dreamweaver uses a lot of resources, it has features you will never ever use and it doesn't TEACH you the languages unless you use it as a plain text editor, in which case you might as well use Notepad as it uses hardly any resources.

        HTML is essentially very easy to understand, so why complicate matters with a WYSIWYG editor. All you need is a few websites or books to teach you the language and notepad. When you start talking ASP and other server side languages then you can think of using Visual Studio or whatever, but for a basic Wordpress site, you only need Notepad and an FTP program. I do actually own the latest version of Dreamweaver, it came in Creative Suite CS6 and the only thing I use it for is creating html based emails with bold and highlighted text. I simply set up some CSS classes and use the WYSIWYG function, as I type out the email, I highlight, italic or bold the text to save time. I then paste the html in Aweber. It's not as simple as Notepad and would leave a lot of people scratching their heads when things go wrong with their websites.

          I didn't think you were arrogant at all Mr. Monetize.... I agree with you 100%. I only mentioned AceHTML Pro because of its easy learning curve, clean code, and multiple language capabilities. I've been using it since 2000 or so.

          Personally I believe that a good base knowledge of PHP comes in handy on today's internet as well.

          Have a Good day

            Thanks Pete, its hard to get across on a forum what you mean exactly but I am trying to help people learn it properly. They will thank me in the long run when they can figure out any layout or browser issues themselves. I have never used AceHTML but I trust your professional judgement, it will do the same job as notepad I imagine and that can only be a good thing. I write the same languages as you, HTML, CSS & PHP. With a little jQuery thrown in for good measure.

    Without any html skills I don't think it easy to do it.
    So I think you should hire someone to customize your site.
    It'll be the great idea, If you want to do it by yourself then you have to learn html first.
