Web page design software?


I have FC4 and want to make a fer web pages. are there any programs out there like dreamweaver, frontpage, or pagemaker? Also the reason I'm asking, I know I could search for it but I was wondering which one was the easiest to use and learn. Thanks a lot!

Nvu <--- Fairly similar to Dreamweaver, with a gui (blech) mode.

Bluefish <--- No gui mode, but a really great editor. My choice no doubt.

Quanta++ <--- Also no gui mode, but a decent editor none the less.

When you say make a few web pages are you talking about coding them, or using a paint-like app like Frontpage?

Personally I use vi to edit pages but find myself sometimes using bluefish to create new one's. And even in the Windows world, stay away from Frontpage, it's probably the worst software ever made, no joking either, it's that bad. Your better off just making your html pages with Word if your going to waste money on Frontpage.

Dheck out http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/NVU if you really need the WYSIWYG type editor and can't handle typing out html manually..

Quanta+ has a VPL (GUI editor) mode but it's definitely in the "experimental" stage. For coding HTML, CSS, PHP and even asp.net it's a kickbutt editor.

If you want a WYSIWYG editor in Linux, I guess you're willing to trade off clean HTML in exchange for convenience. If that is what you wish, you can use OpenOffice.org writer, which does have a web editing mode, or you can use Mozilla Composer.

Well, It's been 8 years since I've coded HTML source... Kinda isn't my specialty. moved more to hardware. Think I might pick up a book on it to catch up. Any suggestions?

Don't bother with books on HTML. They're mostly fluff; there are PLENTY of resources available online for free that get right to the point without a lot of nonsense. W3C is a great place to start.

Learn how to code to W3C standards:
Which is great in theory but impractical when you take into consideration that MSIE owns >80% of the market and does not conform to the standards, and to take into account users with javascript disabled you still have to resort to brain-dead browser sniffing to determine browser capabilities.

It's unfortunate.
