    What tool do you suggest as being bet for creating Web site?

    Hello,

    What software product(s) do you suggest as being best for developing cool looking, state of the art, Web sites?

    I mean if you were going to learn/master 3 software products maximum, which 3 do you suggest as being best to master to create world class Web sites?
    Just to be clear, I do not mean the back end of a Web sites, I am referring to the front end of the Web site, that is the look and feel of the Web site, that is the HTML and Grafix. The back end I already have mastery off via PHP, JSP & MySQL.

    Again please limit your suggestion to the TOP 3 Best products.

    Regards,

    HTML, CSS and JavaScript are the obvious three.

    Hi,

    I was referring to the software tools that enable you create the cool Web site front end. Like dreamweaver, and tools like that.
    FYI, I am expert in HTML & Javascript already.

    Regards,

    Any decent web editor and a copy of the main browsers along with an image editor would be about all you really need.

    So one option would be DreamWeaver/PhotoShop/Firefox/Opera/Safari/IE

    another much cheaper (free) option would be KompoZer/Gimp/Firefox/Opera/Safari/IE

    There are a few hundred other web editors you could substitute along with a couple of dozen different image editors any of which would be useable. A lot of the differences are a matter of personal preferences as to how you want to work. One of the big choices with web editor is whether you want one that can preview the pages for you (like Dreamweaver or Kompozer) or just want one where you work directly with the HTML all the time.

    Maybe I'm old fashioned but I still use a text editor for HTML/CSS rather than a visual tool. Photoshop is also great if you can afford it. Overall, I'd say your ability and imagination will have more impact on your site than the tools you use. Of course, looking at existing websites you like is a good way to pick up new tricks.

    You don't need any specific software to create great websites. It's all in the ability of the creator rather than his software.
