Novice: Web Design Software and Web Hosts
I am a novice - don't know one thing - in web design and would like to request reviews of the Freeway 4 and other web creation software. What are the better products out there. I would also appreciate reviews of web hosts that accomodate novices. Thank-you.

I love freeway.
I'm experienced with website, and developed a huge amount with oldies on the pc like Frontpage and Dreamweaver, but years of using these programs I yearned for a website creation program that didnt rely on grids and the restrictions these cause.
Freeway allows you to layer graohics, text, in such a creative and FREE WAY that it takes the headache completely off the user.
Creating transparent images in photoshop and dragging them in and preserving that information saves so much headaches.
BUT with all the creativity it gives you, it does have issues too.
Freeway instinctivly takes your page and sorts out all the html for you, but there are times when you need to manually edit HTML and this can be fidly with freeway.
Dragging and dropping files from photoshop was a breeze before the universal version of freeway was released. Since then its a pain.I often use the rosetta version instead.
So a great program overall, and if you are a new user, go for FREEWAY EXPRESS
Their should be a trial that you can give it a shot before commiting anyway.

For a webhost, I would recommend AwardSpace. They give you 200mb for your website and 5gb of monthly traffic for free. I have my website hoted with them.
BTW: their free plan you get a sub-domain e.g. www.insertnamehere.awardspace.com

I'd suggest starting with iWeb or RapidWeaver, and when you have mastered them, move on to an application such as Adobe GoLive or Deamweaver.
