I do find it extraordinary that to access
Microsoft OfficeLive you have to be using Internet Explorer or Firefox.
Chrome and Opera users just get a very badly designed page telling
them their browser is unsupported. However, once you do get there
you'll find a good web site building tool - all available on-line
and with an interface that's better than Google Sites'.
At the time of writing Microsoft were offering free domain names
too so you could have a smart site address too. That is a limited
time arrangement, though, and you would need to pay to renew the
domain at some point in the future and should you later decide to
make a proper site and host it with that domain name transfersn't
a simple matter.
Microsoft are still well behind Google in the field of on-line
documents but have the edge on them here.
