With Google's contribution to this sector
you can create professional web sites with no special skills or
publishing knowledge. The interface has improved a bit since the
Google Page Creator days but it still isn't as intuitive as you'd
expect and the templates aren't brilliant yet.
A lot of Google products have been much improved design-wise recently
so maybe they'll eventually get round to this. You do get the feeling,
though, that it's just there because Microsoft have something similar.
