I'm happy to help. I'm by no means an expert at building websites. But I have build, marketed and maintained my own two site over the last 3 or 4 years or so.
Go to Yahoo and do a search for Yahoo Sitebuilder or Yahoo Web Hosting. Prices are very good and included is downloadable Yahoo Sitebuilder, a WYSIGWYG (what you see is what you get) builder.
My 1st site was Link hidden: Login to view
and after that was Link hidden: Login to view
Neither one of them exist now, or even my 3 shops that I had on eBay and eBid.net
Either way, the software is great, very versatile, I even ranked no.1 on MSN page 4 for a search term for the 1st site and my photography site I ranked no.1 on page 1 for the term 'study digital photography' on Yahoo and MSN.
I'm telling you all this to give you an idea of Sitebuilder, you can do pretty much what you want and although it's not Dreamweaver, you should be able to build a stunning site, ecommerce or other with it.
