If you want to get serious about web development, forget the tools
(DreamWeaver, FrontPage, Web Content
Management Systems)..they are just tools. Learn the technologies and
programmer stuff...asp, java, oracle, XML/XSL/XSLT, VBA, C++, server
side/client side, etc (the stuff that is hard).

The woods are full of (unemployed) people that know the easy stuff.

Hi Pat and whirlers,

I feel your pain, Pat. I am just at the beginning of a global job search
as my company has just laid me off. Writing content for a Web content
management vendor was a small part of the many tasks that I performed
while managing the work of one other technical writer. We've produced a
very nice Online Help system/Reference Guide using Frame/WebWorks. It's
so nice that I am going to enter it in STC-France competition just
before my severance runs out.

There might be demand for your skills and I think it would be wise to
know DreamWeaver, FrontPage, and if you know a bit about the Web Content
Management Systems that are out there that might help.
