O/T Webpage software

I saw this posted but no real links the other day. I usually use frontpage and don't care for it that much. I have a bunch of upcoming work to do and wondered if there was a bunch of options on software. Even free maybe????
I saw dreamweaver and some others offered. Any links? And we have to use the KISS theory too. (keep it simple stupid) So no I don't want to do any manual html codeing.
So.........what do you use, and why?
Thanks.

Re: O/T Webpage software

The best, yet user friendly html software out there is Homesite, its made by Allaire, a subsidiary of Macromedia. YOu can download a free 30 day trial at http://www.allaire.com. It is very powerful and also very easy to use. The best way to learn it is to walk yourself thru their excellent tutorial, it shows you how to build a simple webpage from scratch. Everything on the ORC Land Use Section was done in Homesite, take a look at it.

Re: O/T Webpage software

I use an old shareware package called "GOMER". It was recommended to me 3 years ago when I wanted to learn basic HTML coding and NOT spend months learning Photoshop,Dreamweaver, or Fireworks. Since the company (stoopidsoftware) went out of business, it doesn't exist anymore. If you have the bandwith, I'll be happy to send it to you. It's about 3MB for the zipped installer.

Re: O/T Webpage software

The only problem with using an html program that is 3 years old is that some of the tags will be obsolete, and it will not be up to date with current browsers. The nice things about Homesite and Dreamweaver is you can check your coding in any number of browsers. For instance, IE is pretty forgiving about coding mistakes and will oftentimes still be viewable, but Netscape, especially early versions, is prone to being very sensitive to coding errors, some will even crash the browser completely. Wanta try something, open, but don't close a paragraph in Netscape 4.5 or earlier, the browser will get so confused it will crash. There is a big advantage to using an up to date power program like Homesite or Dreamweaver. I have both, I bought Homesite (its only about $90) and ORC gave me Dreamweaver. I use Dreamweaver very occasionnaly, but learning the whole program is outta my league, the manual is about 800 pages. But, Homesite can be learned in 2-3 days, it is probably the most popular html software available, and has won numerous awards.

Re: O/T Webpage software

Go to cnet.com dirtdog.
I downloaded a bunch of those a while ago, and it was easy to rule out each one.
They have shareware and some freeware

Re: O/T Webpage software

I'll stick with my frontpage. It's easy, it was free and I've created hundreds of pages using it.

Re: O/T Webpage software

I have Front Page 2K, and it put in too many torpedoes for Netscape...
I want a page anyone can load and view without lockups and crap.

So many cats, so few recipes...
