I need some advice/guidance about design tools.

For reference I'm a "mossback" software type. My first "hello world" 
program was saved on paper tape for a computer with drum memory - And it 
was state of the art. I have upgraded my hardware sense then, grudgingly 
using windows OS. I have been using/supporting W3 online validators for 
my web page which is an example <http://www.knob.com> of where I am on 
web design. I've been using Adobe PhotoShop to create some photo 
elements to past into my granddaughter's web page.

My problem: I'm working with a non-profit and made suggestions about how 
they could improve their web pages <http://www.atheatregroup.org/> which 
are out of date among other things. Their relationship with the 
developer is "not ideal." I think the answer is about to be 'OK, your so 
smart, fix it.'

As you can see the current pages has been developed with Adobe GoLive 
and Front Page. I feel I will need to provide an order more glitz than 
what I have been doing. On the other hand the town does not have fiber 
optic. Lots of folks use a town wide WiFi vis DSL. One of the board 
members has dial-up. I mention this as a guide for the upper limit on 
bandwidth. (When I go to Silverton for the summer, I take a VSAT.)

Suggestions? tools? books? guidance? Thanks. Lou
