How to convert an old HTML website to a Joomla powered site

Recently a forum user asked for help converting an older "static" HTML website (made with MS Word) to Joomla, so after giving some pointers to some basic "how to use Joomla" documents and tutorials, I put together a series of short videos as a quick example of how to start this process. I used the real website, and it took a total of about 30 minutes from start to finish.

Part 1: Let's set up an empty site and install a template

Part 2: We start to create articles with some cut and paste

Part 3: More cut and paste and setting up menus

Part 4: Adding some basic styling

Part 5: Putting in a page footer and some module discussion
