Build Your Own Website: The Step-by-step Beginner's Guide to Creating a Website or Blog by Kyle MacRae
With this manual, the reader will learn how to construct three very different kinds of website from scratch.

Next up is a classic but multi-faceted 'home page' style site with options to add movies, photo galleries, a family tree and more. Finally, for those with something to sell, we set up a comerical project with virtual shop-front. No knowledge of HTML is required or assumed, and the focus throughout is on how to achieve results fast without reinventing the wheel - or indeed the web.
