Thinking of building a webpage.I need a good HTML editor for someone that is a novice.
Also, relatively cheap.
I was going to try out the Homesite trial, but I think you need some knowledge of HTML.
Might it be better to try a WYSIWYG editor?
Your input is appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Don't you need extensive knowledge of HTML to use Notepad?
I am a complete novice y'know.

I just play with it in Notepad because I rarely start a page from scratch and it's easy to make enhancements without the editor doing things you don't expect. I have used FrontPage and Netscape Composer. You could try FrontPage for a learning experience, but people I know get frustrated with the liberties it takes with your code.

Notepad and an HTML for dummies book is all you need to get started.

Man, after 4 years of studying the stuff, the TC majors at my school still can't touch something i make in 10 minutes with Macromedia Dreamweaver. I dunno if they offer a free d/l anymore (it's REALLY expensive) but it will make you look like a pro in no-time.

Macromedia Dreamweaver is excellent. It's a little pricey though (~$250). You can download a fully functional (I think) 30 day trial at macromedia.com.

This program is great for both advanced and those getting started. Plus, it is free.

RCedit is the program. It cuts down on the redundant work.

Nothing beats dreamweaver. Once you learn it you make the highest quality webpages.
