I use dreamweaver 2..Back in the day I used to use Pagemill but it had a TON of bugs in it...So I got fed up and tested out dreamweaver...Many less bugs so I have stuck with dreamweaver...Haven't even tried using frontpage or golive yet. I am too lazy to do that! http://geekvillage.com/ubb/wink.gif

I like using Frontpage 2000, since I'm really used to the Microsoft Office layout.

Beleive it or not but I use Netscape Composer, it's easy, it's free, and it's the best. Programs these days are too complicated and comfusing. I have Golive and Frontpage 2000, but don't use them.

I use note/word pad. That's how I first started learning html, it's probally not the most efficient way to make web pages though.

I use Dreamweaver 3. I had used Frontpage 98/2000, but if you have a site with nearly 3,000 pages, it gets dog-slow.

Hello ,

I'm using Frontpage 2000 , because I don't do alot of web designing , and If I do , I make simple pages , so Frontpage is enough for me http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Using TextPad 4 here. It just is easier for me. The newer version allows you to set up your own tools and macros. Seems like everyone uses what they feel most comfortable with tho.

I use FrontPage 2000 and jump to the HTML view a lot to hand-code and modify stuff ;-)

Thumbs up

I use dreamweaver 3, it's really good with large numbers of html files. You need a pretty decent machine to run it on, i've managed to get an old IBM NT server (4*200Mhz Pentium Pro's,2GB RAM), basically I load the applications into a ram disk b4 starting to work, runs as fast as I can think :-)

notepad and homesite 4.1 are the best and only things i need.

dreamweaver is good for not very complicated webpages (http://antilitter.gov.vi),
but if i need a decent coding i do it my self (http://surfsector.com)

For all my graphic needs i use Corel Photo-Paint .. it has everything. Photoshop is nothing comparing to Corel!


I chose not to choose a life, i chose something else...

Ok: By far the best way to get exactly what you want is to type the actual code in notepad (or msdos edit) However, If you're like me and need to use a lot of tables, get macromedia dreamweaver 3, it's worth it. Dreamweaver is the easiest wysiwyg program out there for tables, it takes 2 minutes to learn. And its free for 30 days... more if you get the crack http://geekvillage.com/ubb/wink.gif .... however i would recommend buying it if you like it enough.

I use a mixture of Dreamweaver 3, and BBEdit 5 -- which work together as a team and are seamlessly integrated. I love it!
