    Nope. Probably never will be, iWeb is for the consumer who knows nothing about HTML.

    Well that would help explain why Apple has to bring the entire shop site down, whenever there's a seemingly minor update :p

    it seems that iWeb is leaning more toward blogging websites instead of full scale major corporations' websites so it's not likely

    I think parts of apple's site lacks uniformity. in technical writing, that was one thing that was hammered in our heads: uniformity. I realize it is a stupid, minute thing, but it annoys me!

    No and no....no way with the public iWeb at least..way to complex, and then the site did not change much after it was released they properly use webobjects and other things ;)

    No, but their pages could be better looking if they were done in iWeb. As of late, the Apple.com has gone down the tubes. From inconsistent page widths and styles among other things. One of these days, they should just start over with something new.

    With that said, I think their prime improvements have been were it counts the most, the store.

    The Online Apple Sites have the cleanest design ever! I can browse the entire Mac range in 2 minutes on the Apple Store, but then go to www.dell.com and its a real pain to navigate with all those ads and sections and 1000 different models. *shudders*

    That's just to kick up a fuss. Everyone here goes crazy when they do this, good publicity.

    actually this is probably more related to updating related content across many different groups of pages deep inside the website. It is easier to just say you are bringing down the entire site than it is to build away to interact with users who were trying to go back to a section of the site you just removed... And being that it is a huge site using static and dynamic content, they probably have a few clusters of web proxy cache & web server to deploy to. Who knows what their application systems requirements are...

    I'd rather see a down site than be on a page in a section that is still being updated. how annoying.

    It's actually made with an older version of Front Page.

    What they do is create the pages in PowerPoint, then export them to Front Page.

    I keed...I keed..:p

    While Apple's site really ins't all that complex, it is a bit beyond iWeb's capabilities.

    My guess at the tools: Good 'ol text editor. If not, then most likely Dreamweaver (non WSYWIG editting, btw).

    There's a lot more dynamic things happening with that site on the backend than what iWeb would allow you to create.

    I am starting to preferr this... their pages/sections still have brand unity, but each section has its own identity. Once this idea fully develops, being on sites with 10,000 of pages in hundreds of sections will be way more user friendly...
