After all the recommendations, I downloaded an eval copy today. I'm
using a 486/50, so I expected it to be slow. What I didn't expect was
that at the end of the install process I would get an error message
saying that some DLL was missing, and I could find it at a Microsoft

I also didn't expect that the browser (the WYSIWYG portion of
HomeSite) wouldn't work unless I had Internet Explorer 4.01 or later
installed. I got that message, and a couple of error messages, and
gave up and uninstalled it.

I'll try it again when I get my new Pentium II 450 next month, but in
the meantime, it looks as if HomeSite is for high-end systems only. I
would have been nice to have some warning about that.

By the way, how much does it cost? The site buries that information
fairly far down, and I never got there.
