The images would have to be stored somewhere (photobucket, imageshack, flickr, etc.). If you are going to use style type 1, there are many theme generators out there. I can't really recommend one at the moment, but I find the more simple the editor the better (less useless code you don't need).

MySpace is a HORRIBLE example to learn HTML, because the majority of it is CSS and to edit it successfully, you need to know the name of the Divs that MySpace uses (which is where generators come in handy.)

If he wants to learn HTML, I suggest finding a good HTML tutorial site (W3 Schools is very nice) and making a website in notepad, though it will only be available on his computer as it will not be on the internet, but it will still work in the same way.

Once he becomes familiar with HTML, he may want to start a webpage on the Internet, and there are free and non-free approaches.
