There are plenty of good HTML tutorials out there.

<body bgcolor="#000000" text="#00FF00" onload="javascript:main()">
HTML is easy once you use it a little.

<script language="javascript">
function main(){
alert("Try to learn some HTML");

htmlgoodies.com is how i learned html to start... it's really beginner oriented.
html is easy enough to learn without something like DreamWeaver.
to get the idea at least try this page:
HTML Goodies - If you know nothing about... (http://www.htmlgoodies.com/primers/html/article.php/3478131) edit:looks like primer #1 is a broken link, go straight to primer #2
if you're looking for something to write it for you (like dreamweaver) check out this page on linux apps that are comparable to common windows ones:

I'm using Quanta, you still have to learn HTML (at least the way I'm using it) but it has good syntax highlighting. I used Ultraedit in Windows and it's the closest I've found to it. I was using bluefish but it seemed a little choppy on my system for some reason.

Depends what you want.

NVU lets you do wysiwyg (what you see is what you get)
Gedit is a simple text editor but also very powerful (it has some good plugins too)
Bluefish is a good middle ground
Aptana is a full on IDE that is more for Javascript and AJAX stuff rather than HTML
Scribes is a good alternative to Gedit

First 3 are in the repos (just use synaptic to get them) and the last two have very good websites.

My advice would be to look around the internet for some good HTML tutorials. Knowing HTML yourself will be much more beneficial than using a visual editor that does everything for you. It will also give you a lot more freedom and offer you a gateway into other languages (such as javascript, which can really boost the interactivity of your webpages). So, with visual editors you have the simplicity of a drag-n-drop interface, but you are left with little-to-no understanding of your page and often a very generic looking layout. With coding your own HTML, you have to take the time to learn it, but then you will understand your webpage and have all the control over it you could possibly want (especially when combined with javascript, or even php).

All you need to create a webpage is a text editor, just save the file as a ".html" and open it in your web browser.

Have some links...

Visual Editors can be nice for content only, but styling should be done manually with CSS
