Re: Designing

The first level is to start with HTML and when you will become proficient in HTML than jump to PHP, Java Script, XML, ROR, Flex, Flash, Photoshop.
After some time you become the mater in web designing.

Code By Hand

I wouldn't use a WYSIWYG editor myself, you really need to understand the code behind it if you want to become a developer.

Learn HTML first,don't be intimidated

I assume by saying 'start webdesigning',you want to learn how it's done...not have software that does it for you...right? I made my first webpages from scratch...that's how to LEARN.I just looked up HTML tags in search.There's alot of HTML info on the net,and alot of <tags> to soak in...but u only need the basics to start out on.In ONE night of research,i learned enough to make website with background texture/animated pics/clickable pics/paragraphs/links etc.Cropping/creating animated pics,and alligning paragraphs...was the most time consuming.
Right click on any website(try cnet here),and choose 'view source'.This shows you what that website looks like before its 'interpreted' by your PC.Anything written between these< > brackets is a 'tag'.Most sites are advanced,and will look intimidating.
You can shock yourself with Wordpad and some HTML knowledge.HOWEVER,if u want an advanced website fast...by all means,get an editor.Editors rock....but learning the real way is far more rewarding.
(NOTE:The editors i tried inserted HTML tags where needed,but didn't show me... maybe some editors are DESIGNED to teach)

Website Training

You should learn first Search Engine Optimization- The process of making a site: "Search Engine-friendly" - is the probably the most important aspect of web design.

Also you have a knowledge in creating Web pages.

Design inspiration

The best place to start when it comes to designing a web page is taking a look at template / tutorial sites and taking your inspiration from there.

Keep the design simple, build it so that it is easily parsed by Google etc; so make sure you use header tags etc (all of which can be formatted to your preference using CSS)
