started out by creating a background in Painter. Nothing difficult, just
a fun-looking font and some smooth colors. Then I created the top and
bottom (including the button) of this textbox, and saved these 3 files.
Yup, I only used three graphic files to create this whole page.
next step was creating the index.html page in Frontpage. I placed the
background picture inside and put a table of 5 rows and 2 columns on
top of it. Then I loaded the 2 graphic files into the respective cells
of the table, and that was it. Just a couple of hours work.
I decided to liven up my site a bit by adding some small Flash Mix-FX
animation to it, just to touch up the design. This was perhaps the easiest
part, it took me just a few minutes trying out and varying the different
templates. That's all!
