Alternative method of creating a basic Hello World Visualforce page?

I'm working through the " Workbook". So far so good.


I'm up to Step 2 of the "Building A Custom User Interface With VisualForce" tutorial.


I've encountered my first problem.


Going to "" does give me a "Page MyMileagePage does not exist" error as expected. However, the error page does not look like the one illustrated in the cookbook and there is no "Create Page MyMileagePage" link.


Is there another simple way of creating the same page without forcing the error message? Perhaps via Setup > Develop > Pages?


Is there a tutorial as simple and strong as " Workbook" that walks you through that alternative process?


Many thanks in advance.

Make sure "Development Mode" is enabled. (Setup / Profile / Development Mode)


ALso, you can go to Setup / Develop / Pages and just create the page there


Third route is Eclipse...
