I was mildly shocked that my own first instinctive answer to "easiest way to make a small site" is "write my own html in Notepad". That answer is almost 30 years old, it's how I made my very first web page. And handwriting html is still my first answer! It can't still be the answer, can it?

Would still be my first reaction too. No notepad but vi, but a text editor nonetheless.

I remember the old days where I tried that Microsoft thing (can't even remember the name anymore) and was so shocked about the bloated code it generated, that I just had to clean it up in an editor before I dared to publish it.
