Frontpage isn't supported anymore se http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/front ... fault.aspx - Dreamweaver isn't easy to use if you have no HTML knowledge but is probably the better option.

this debate has been around for ages and has been asked repeatedly ... from all the ones I have read (on ozzu), I have come to this conclusion ...

Dreamweaver: not as user friendly as frontpage, but development is a bit better by reducing code and being more cross browser compatible.

Frontpage: much more user friendly, but turns a moles heap into a mountain, meaning it adds heaps and heaps of unnecessary code which isn't always cross-browser compatible.

The actual point here is that if either one of these aren't managed correctly the end result is going to be a mess ... unfortunately you'll have to know how code works. It's like building a car from scratch with a half-assed manual, you still have to know what you're doing to get it right ...

when you dont know html, frontpage is great. when you know html then you'll not want to use frontpage.

when you know html, you'll be able to work with dreamweaver.

each program is totally different so you cant really compare them. one is for non html users and the other for people who can write websites in html and edit the code themselves.

Yeah, Notepad++ with FireFTP is my preference over both Dreamweaver and Frontpage.

I used Notepad for a long time, too, but then I downloaded Notepad++ to try it out and now I'm hooked.

I like the color coding and the tabs so you can have a lot of files open in the same window.

The first site I built was with Dreamweaver MX. And I have to say I had the book on my lap and I sat there for like 6 hours and worked it out. The same site would probably take me about 2 now. But that's only because I've learned more about HTML. So I would start there. Learn HTML and CSS first, then decided on an editor. I hate Frontpage with a passion! I really hate all Microsoft products. Don't tell Bill. But I also use NVU when I'm at work. It's a piece of junk too, but it's free and it works better than Frontpage IMO. But it doesn't come with any templates. So get some HTML and CSS books/tutors, download a free template and just have at it. Then if you feel like you really want to invest in an editor, save your pennies and buy Dreamweaver :)

I say learn the code from scratch because that way you can edit/fix/update a site from anywhere.

For maximum cross browser compatibility and flexibility I tend to say Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver has a learning curve and takes a while to learn to use but in the end it is worth it. I recommend going to the bookstore and getting a book that teaches you how to use Dreamweaver, it might seem like a waste of time now but in the end it will save you time by introducing you to aspects of the program you might not have noticed on your own.

I'm not sure what the best book to use is, I used Hands On Training (H.O.T.) Dreamweaver which is available on Amazon. It worked well for me but to each their own.

Hope this helps at least a little bit.
