  1. I need to build a web page, and so far I noticed that there are basically two styles. One is with Wix or similar pages: they provide a template that can be edited on-site, and then become an actual page. You don't need to know html code, but you don't own the page: you can't edit the code directly, you can't take it to another hosting site, and must work with their terms and conditions and the things that their editors allow to do. The other is with HTML editors like Notepad++: I can make a web page in a folder inside my computer, I control and own everything, and upload it to any web hosting site I choose. You need to know HTML code, of course, but that's not a problem for me. The problem, however, is that with those editors I have to start literally from nothing: new page, basic skeleton of head and body tags, and everything else is up to me. Is there something a bit in the middle? An HTML editor that offers some crude and basic webpage templates, so I can start from there and tweak and embellish things by editing the code, rather than have to reinvent the wheel by myself? I'm with a limited budget, so if it's a freeware software, so much the better.
  2. I'm building a web page, and started with a simple layout: there is a banner and a menu at the top, and the welcome page after it. People may then select an item from the menu at the top or the image links at the main page, and go to other subpages. But the idea is that those subpages should be loaded in the area below the menu, the menu itself and the banner should remain in place, not reloaded each time the visitor navigates around. I have seen some instructions but they always rely in frames or frame-related tags. It has been made abundantly clear that those are not compatible with HTML5 and have many drawbacks, but then, which is the modern way to do that? Note that most or all major pages in internet do this regardless of their format (limit the navigation to a part of the page, while keeping links at the top, bottom, left or right in their place), so I'm sure that I'm not asking about some outdated idea. The W3Schools page itself, after all, does this.
