Well i want to make a simple website , for which i need some suggestion from you people.

I have good idea about front page to make website but the tool not looking great so please suggest me some tool to make a website.

i want to make catagories on left size and when user click on one catagory the results will be displayed on the page , as i want to increase catagories by time to time for this currently i am thinking of making frame but frames in frontpage is not looking good.

a good IDE always helps coding. have a look at Eclipse, Notepad++ or Geany. generally I recommend hand-writing code, because that gets you to learn the languages (and no program can write/optimize source code better than the human mind)

@muddasirmunir
you're right, frames are ugly. for layout templates you should ask in the HTML/CSS forum.

I am learning too.

I recommend for tools: notepad++. Everything is written in plain text, the files are saved as the extensions. As mentioned this is the best way to learn. You could, if you really wanted to everything in windows notepad.
If you use JavaScript get the firebug addon for firefox and use to check runtime errors etcetera

For making multiple pages I suggest you use PHP. Or use javascript and do everything in one page (or pass data with cookies).

PHP is code that runs on the server and makes the page that is sent to the user, so it is very good for templating things.

a site similar to mega video could be made with PHP/Javascipt and CSS

You mention that you would like to add categories. How I did this on my site was put them in a database (mySQL) and use php to fetch that set of data and make the links. very effective. This works for images and videos as well.
