There is an easy way and a hard way ;-)

First, you can use M$ Word or OpenOffice to create the document. Then  
save as a PDF and upload to the site using any of many FTP programs  
(Here at Penn we use and recommend FileZilla for Windows and Fetch for  
Mac) THen just post the link to the PDF.

Or you can go the full blown HTML editor. I use DreamWeaver, but that  
is prolly overkill for what you want to do. There are a number of web  
design packages out there for Windows and Mac. They all include the  
FTP software (like Frontpage).

Here at the Philly MG Club we use the PDF method as it makes it easier  
for a number of us to input, the the final PDF gets sent to me and I  
upload it. You can also password protect the PDF by using a simple  
htaccess set up and just give the password to the paid members.

One of these days, you'll look back on all this, and plow into a  
parked car.
