In my opinion, one trouble with templates is that the ones I've seen are usually too complicated for beginners. You need to understand too much HTML to use them.

Do yourself a favor - find a less competitive niche.

Allan, how are you feeling lately?
It's absolutely essential that you have a copy of your web pages on YOUR computer, not just on your web host's server. I've read too many horror tales where the web host has either gone broke or had technical problems and sites have simply vanished. All that hard work down the drain.
Surf to a great looking site and click on: File>Edit-Page. Netscape will open that page in Composer and you can swap out their content and grafics for yours - while retaining elements like structure, fonts, etc.
It is also a great way to "peek under the hood" to see how pages are structured; and once you create a Template.html page you just open it; save it under a new name everytime you create new content.

Maybe it is too small, but you know that I haven't earned a penny
in past two years.
