but never knew how?
Google introduces the Google page generator: http://pages.google.com/
With the aid of modern browser techniques it helps you in building a site and publishing it easily.
"The app is great for getting whatever photos, information, files you want published, and it doesn't have to be in the typical blog format. The published site is hosted at http://gmailuser.googlepages.com/. There are several templates and page formats to work from, and as far as I can tell, everything is WYSIWYG. The published HTML is very clean, but it does have some leftover fragments from editing pages repeatedly. If you want to be precise, you can manually edit the HTML. There is a Google Groups page available for the service. It took about 30 seconds to get a rudimentary page online." PC World has a quick rundown on the service at their site."
i was playing around with this today. i have never set up a website so it was cool to throw one together and have it linked on the www after i was through.
