    Use Webstarts to Create a Free Site - Creating a Home Page

    (Page 4 of 4 )

    Get the feel for page design with Webstarts by creating a home page. In the example pictured on the previous page, the site templates offer a black navigational bar across the top. For this example, letís change the background of the page to match that bar.

    Go to the File menu, and choose the Background Color option. From the window that pops up, click the black box under the Basic Colors heading. Click Apply at the bottom. You should notice that your Web site editor immediately reflects this change. Webstarts offers a real-time preview of your site even as you create it.

    Next, add some welcoming text to your home page. Choose the Text option from the Insert menu. A box should appear in the left-hand corner of your page editor. Drag the box until itís near the top middle of the page. Select your font type, size and color using the toolbar above the editor.

    Go to the box you created for your text, and select the pencil symbol. This will allow you to type out your text exactly as you want it to appear. When youíre done, click somewhere outside the text box to put it in place. Any time you want to change your text, simply enter the editor and click right onto the text box itself.

    Now, you know how to add a background color and text to your site. Play around with other Webstarts elements to create captivating, interesting pages that Internet traffic will enjoy. With Webstarts, you can immediately see what your pages will look like to your viewing audience.
