I made a cool site once for a campaign I was making for OFP on me PC...but the software I used is now WAY out of date and I want to start getting used to the web again...what's a good html editor or whatever for making websites? i just want something that can do an adequate job...

I've used both GoLive and DreamWeaver and they're both equaly good at getting the job done. But these guys are WYSIWYG editors with access to the code if you need to do modifications. If you're a purist, you might want to go with BBedit or another powered text editor.

What is it you're trying to do? Just make a couple of pages or manage a whole site. That might be one reason to go with GoLive or DreamWeaver.

I use Adobe GoLive...... main reason, because I think it's really good...... and Adobe has the interfaces of their software range sorted!! Dreamweaver is also very good... and can pretty much do everything GoLive can........

I use BBedit to clean up the code that WYSIWYG generates....... but that's just for added efficiency.....

You can't go wrong with either of the above......

Good luck Daniel son...... :p

I too would also go with GoLive or Dreamweaver, I have built a couple of sites using Dreamweaver and have always found it very nice to use, I am now also looking at GoLive and from the little I've used it it seems very good; but I'm more of a Dreamweaver kinda guy myself ;)
Either way you can't go wrong.

Oh, and one good word of advice

Don't EVER use M$ Word to generate web pages - it will create the ugliest code you ever saw. Actually, its worth doing, once, just to see the mess it makes. I've not tried using any other M$ web creation software, its just not as clean as GoLive or Dreamweaver.

That's good advice..... listen to duke here...... but actually, do try Word just the once......... then marvel how it doesn't work in all browsers...... :p

GoLive and Dreamweaver are the way to go me thinks........ :D

GoLive 6 have added a lot of features that DreamWeaver have had for some time. Almost the same program now. DreamWeaver is still much easier to learn and faster to work with.

You can do more with GoLive than DW when it comes to actions/behaviors (javascript etc) You can get alot of behaviors from macromedia's website, but with GoLive the features are already there.

I haven't tried DW MX final jet, but I guess Macromedia have added some more features.

I'm holding my hands on DW for so long.
