    Got to be Dreamweaver every time for me. It may not look quite as familiar when you first load it up as Frontpage, but it's sooooooo much more powerful.

    Probably about 6 months ago. I was asked to take a class teaching some kids the basics of creating a web page. There was no Dreamweaver though, only the Frontpage that comes with Office. I'd forgotten how bad it was! It was like trying to climb Everest with your hands tied tightly to your sides!

    Personally, I just never felt that I had total control of my website in Frontpage. I was always depedant on whether Frontpage would allow me to make the changes that I wanted ... and more often that not, it wouldn't!

    Ha ha - it was bad enough trying to get them to create something with Frontpage without having to try and teach them the basics of HTML!

    To put it nicely, they weren't the most attentive audience!

    So I take it you have not evaluated the 2003 version then.

    I haven't either, but if it has incredibly good ASP.Net support, better CSS support and doesn't rewrite my code I might consider it.
    that's me!

    Homesite is with the MX version yes, I used Homesite till it was integrated into DW. Still only use it in Homesite view though, although the design view is much better in MX than the old Homesite version.

    I think you'll really enjoy working with Dreamweaver, it also seems to have a larger fan base. But you will see FP used a lot more in a corporate setting due to it coming with MS Office and many companies won't want to buy more software... oh well. Once you learn DW, FP is easy to pick up. But teaching yourself HTML like everyone said is the best step.

    Ok, that ends my regurgitating of everything said sofar.
