If you can insert your own HTML into the site, then use Frontpage, make the website, (if you have Frontpage 2003 don't use Layers), and when its finished go to the Code Tab and copy the code and paste into the Tripod thing.
A Knight is sworn to Honour. His heart knows only Virtue. His blade defends the helpless. His might upholds the Weak. His word speaks only truth. His wrath undoes the Wicked.
