1) I have no idea how much 20MB will hold. Are we talking a few pictures or something big enough for the TMF website?

It's small but enough for most personal websites as long as you don't upload too many images and video clips. A typical web page might be 50 to 100 KB plus the images/audio/video. But a lot of space can be used up by email, by people sending you gigantic mega files. My small business plan has 200 MB.

2) I don't know HTML.

One can learn. There are plenty of free resources on the web:

School: http://www.w3schools.com/default.asp
Forum: http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/

You can use Google to search for tutorials, they are hundreds of them on the web.

3) I know there are programs out there that people who don't know HTML can use, but I don't know which ones are any good.

I roll my own so I can't help you there.

4) I'm on a budget. My wife will allow me to spend exactly ZERO dollars in this little project. No more, no less.

Get a new wife? (Sorry, could not resist!) As I said above, there are lots of free resources on the web including shareware for managing websites.

Any suggestions or ideas are welcome.

Start really small, like just a very simple home page. Then you'll find your pace.
