    I have always used front page. I never use templates simple blank pages and use the WYSIWG and sometimes dive in html tab to edit when needed. Then I publish. I no longer use frontpage extensions for form creations ect. I need to find a software that will allow me to import existing website I have. I need it to allow me to save and work on about 6-7 websites. I need it to be EASY to use easy to create hyperlink and mail links and easily to create websites and publish. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Its hard to change after using Frontpage for several years. I am leary about dreamweaver I do not want to have to take a college course to learn to use it.

    Thanks In Advance

    It's called a text editor.

    Dreamweaver is pretty damn easy to use.

    I also think that Dreamweaver is the right tool for you.
    I am using it for years - when it still was made by Macromedia until CS4 today - and I never took any class for that.
    Dreamweaver has a WYSIWYG view and a code view.

    If you are in college, check out the IT/Multimedia department - that would give you the best deal.

    I went for the whole pack (Design Premium) because I also need Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign,..., but if you only need Dreamweaver then just get that to save some money.

    I found a site that has the educational version cheap say jut software media and license key states it is authentic software. How can they do that and is it legit. Seems to save several hundred on some packages of normal student versions.

    What site is it? Your college or the Apple or Adobe EDU store?
    If yes, it should be legit.

    Just take the CS4 Design Premium package:
    $1799 retail
    $599 Apple EDU store/Adobe EDU store
    $349 Apple EDU store when you buy a Mac at the same time
    even less if your school is part of the Adobe CLP program,...
