First, you should learn to make pages with html, just because that is how you will earn respect. However, when actually making a page you want others to view it is better to use a WYSIWYG editor. My fav is Netscape Composer, it comes free if you download the netscape browser. But don't forget to have a good understanding of what is going on behind the scenes because that will help you if you ever have a problem with your page. It will allow you to open the source and troubleshoot it easier than can be done on the WYSIWYG. Thats my advice.
