Forntpage puts all kinds of "garbage" code in the HTML. I have found that as far as WYSIWYGs go, Netscape composer works well (the one for Netscape 7, not 4.x). My wife uses that and I must say the generated source code is cleaner; It still adds some uneccessary stuff in there, but not as bad as Frontpage.
Personally, I use a program called "Pad" by Hesky Data Software ( http://www.hds-pad.com/ ). I like it because it has context highlighting, unlimited undo, and a "cliptray" which comes in handy for commonly typed words/phrases.
All of you guys who say "Notepad" just want to prove something... Dreamweaver (the way I use it) is no different than notepad, but I don't have to go through the trouble of saving the document and then opening it in a browser to view it. I just simply press F12. Also, the colorcoding of code in Dreamweaver just adds to the usage. When notepad adds these features then I'm all over it, until then... Dreamweaver is worth the cost. I can program all day with Notepad, but why? Dreamweaver makes it so much easier to add graphics or change text. Speed and ease of use are what I like. I don't like to waste my time.
Jason make sure you dont just learn the package, learn how the code works as well, so that if you go to work somewhere and they use Adobe GoLive you arent up a creek without a paddle, theres too many unis/colleges which only teach the packages.
Also under File > New in DWMX tick the box marked "Make Document XHTML Compliant"
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
