When I registered my first domain name and built my first site, I used Microsoft Frontpage. I used it because I had it. I used Frontpage for several months until I registered my second domain. I got fed up trying to install the required extensions on the server, as well as some other issues.
I then went on a mission to find a new HTML editor. An online friend suggested Firstpage. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s free, and pretty easy to use. I tried it, but it just didnÃ¢â¬â¢t feel right.
I then tried Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004. It took a little getting used to, but once I got the hang of it I really like it.
I especially like the way you can easily jump between sites. The program will also let you know if you have code that will cause problems with various browsers. There is still a lot I donÃ¢â¬â¢t know about Dreamweaver MX, but so far I am quite pleased with this program.
