    Use a plain text editor, I recommend the free TextWrangler but others may have different preferences.

    Generate the page in iWeb, then open the html files in TextWrangler to make adjustments, add code snippets, etc. Then when you're comfortable with html, ditch iWeb and start coding on your own:

    HTML:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
       "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
    
    <head>
    	<title>An XHTML 1.0 Transitional template</title>
    	<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" />
    	<meta http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css" />
    	<style type="text/css">
    		body { 
    			color: #333;
    			background: #eee;
    		}
    	</style>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    
        <p>Your HTML content here</p>
    
        <p align="right"><a href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer" target="_blank">Validate page</a></p>
    
    </body>
    </html>
    ;)

    iWeb and GoLive

    I'm using GoLive 6.0 for my website and was wondering... can I create a page in iWeb (e.g. video/ movies page) and then integrate that into my GoLive site?

    You could import the generated pages from iWeb into GoLive, but if you're already in GoLive I'd just stay there and do it all in one program.

    options

    To use HTML with iWeb, go to versiontracker.com or macupdate.com and search for software using the keyword iweb or more specifically there are several great add-ons that allow you to jerry-rig iweb into using HTML. iWebMore is one example. There is also a nice little app that allows you to author several websites independently through iWeb (iWebSites).

    For an example, I maintain my church website, which is still in a growing phase, but check out http://www.highviewchristian.org. In particular, the calendar page is creating using iWebMore (I made templates for my site using jTemplate, another great iWeb accessory app) with some javascript. Good luck!

    Hopefully with iWeb 2 they will have added this option!

    I want to use iWeb to make a more professional-looking website than Freewebs offers, but I want to copy the HTML into Freewebs so that I don't have to buy a full .mac membership (I'm just in it so I can use apple Mail for my email).

    You can publish your iWeb site to a local folder, then upload that to whatever server you like.
