There are many tools for Web site development. You will get recommendations
for Dreamweaver, GoLive, and Front Page I'm sure.
Best advice I can give you -- learn HTML first. Don't start your journey by
learning one tool, but by learning to hand-code. Learn the tags and what
HTML can -- and can't -- do.
Understanding what is going on with the HTML will help you when your tool
later fails you... Or, you may find that you like the hand coding so much
you skip the tool (for most things)!
I use GoLive (5/Win) and I really like how it manages the Web site
(upload/uploadmodified/download). But, it won't always give me the layout
that I want. While GoLive has a lot of palettes, and can even drop in some
pretty jazzy script, sometimes it won't do exactly what I want it to do.
So, when I need to I can just go into the HTML code and write it how I want
it. GoLive then uses what I have entered and I can move on.
If I didn't know HTML, I would be stuck with the tool's capabilities and
palette choices. Don't let yourself get in that position!

Hello everyone -
My boss wants to create a web site up and has asked me which software would
work best. I don't
know anything about this end of the technology. I suppose FrontPage or HTML
are the top two
choices, correct? I would certainly welcome feedback from those of you "in
the know". Thx, Chris
