    No. You'll need to learn HTML and CSS. The former defines the content and the structure of your site. The latter defines how that content is presented.

    Both languages are very simple, but unfortunately bugs in user agents (especially IE) can make CSS awkward to use. The best advice when developing is to use a standards-conforming user agent like Firefox or Opera. These will show you how things should really look. You can then fix up any errors later.

    Don't use software like FrontPage or Dreamweaver. Instead, just find a syntax highlighting editor. I use jEdit, a free Java-based text editor, but there are many to choose from. WYSIWYG software produces poor quality code, and really won't help you learn anything.

    Finally, don't be afraid to ask questions. You're bound to have them.

    To start, you'll want to read a decent tutorial. I don't like W3Schools myself, but it should be simple to follow. However, you really must read the HTML Specification at some point. It is the only authoritative document and will tell you things that most tutorials will skip. The same thing goes for the CSS Specification.

    as somebody probably said, no, you cant get the codes. you can use geocities, or tripod which have a format, and make a page for you, but if you want a nice looking, custom page, you need to learn the language. html is very easy, i made my first site in the summer of 6th grade, and it only took about a month of browsin through sites, and books. i am still learnin a ton, but on my site i have a few very helpful sites linked.
