I'm not a web designer. In fact, one of my lifelong goals is to never know enough html or css to have to make websites or answer questions. I can parse my way through a page of code and find the bits I need to edit--photo sizes and links and the like--but every time (and I mean every time) I open up Dreamweaver I have to go running to my web guy at work and plead forgiveness and ask him to fix whatever I just broke. (I'm not sure why he keeps installing Dreamweaver on my computers...)
But, given a little time, and a willingness to be okay with good enough, I finally made us a website. It's not going to win any awards, and it is missing a whole beak-load of examples of the amazing work that gavron has done, but it's a start, and it's happy enough that I can send people there without being embarrassed, which is the first step.
