Here’s how you can create a simple graphic in Microsoft Paint, save it as a JPG file, and display it in your web-page. This video also explains how to create a 2-column page and vertically align the text to the top of the column.

Here’s how to setup your own “free” HTML web server on a Windows XP machine.
