I would suggest, maybe before engaging in such a project you visit YouTube. I trust you will find some great tutorials that can touch bases on that in which you ask.
Dreamweaver is awesome, but I agree with JasonMo. I believe Notebook++ is maybe just what you may want to start off with, then after you gain experience with proper coding ( HTML ' 5 ' and CSS ' 3 ' ) then Dreamweaver would be something to use.
Note: Notebook++ is Free....
Good Luck !
