I too was new to webdesign and I purchased a package from http://www.XSitePro.com.au
It's PERFECT if you want to learn website - not much more I can say really!
The concept behind XSitePro (XSite Pro) is very basic. The team behind XSitePro needed to create a software application that would allow users ranging from complete novices to seasoned professionals to create decent looking websites, quickly and easily. There was a clear gap in the market for an intuitative, almost 'clever' website design application. And boy did they create something good.
XSitePro (XSite Pro) offers an extremely well put together video training course when you first buy the software. This is crucial for those of us on the Internet who do not know how to design websites. It guides you through everything you will need to know and it is all explained simply and effectively. For the more experienced web designers out there, or for those who have a basic understanding of website design, the video tutorial can be skipped and replayed at another time. However, we recommend that the XSitePro video tutorial is a must for anyone using new software.
Another important thing to remember when considering whether to purchase XSitePro, is that aside from learning a new trade, you will never have to pay a web designer a cent ever again. It's so refreshing to produce your own websites, both quickly and easily, and to see them live - it's a rewarding experience.
