More information:
I wanted the coach of my daughter's softball team to be able to update a message on a webpage for all of the parents to see. Since he knows nothing about FTP, Webpages, etc, I wrote a program to allow him to enter a message, click a button, and the program creates HTML code, and then FTP transfers the code to a webpage. Play around with the "scratch" webspace I created to see how it works. Be sure to view the README.TXT file first ... Since the webpage user and password are given, please don't go on there and screw things up for everyone else ... thank you.

This is a good project for beginners in Internet development, as it demonstrates a number of useful techniques, such as manipulating HTML files and using FTP with VB code.
