You started with a bad (Dreamweaver) and a really really awful (Frontpage) program, now you want to start with a good one?

There are no good programs (on any platform) that write webpages for you without you having to see the HTML. However, HTML is not hard to learn so its really worth spending a little time on it.

http://www.malibutelecom.com/yucca/HTML3.2/ is a good place to start.

but i think HTML syntax easily lead to produce errors.
so i suggest to use a good program to create HTML webpage. Learning HTML prgramming make your page more powerfull and flexible. so knowledge of html is an essence

I have to disagree with you dorward. dreamweaver is a nice program, as you edit in the WYSIWYG window you can also see what is going on in the html code, and the same the other way around. And also dreamweaver doesnt add alot of crap like front page, or other microsoft editors do. But this isnt about windows software, just thought I would voice my opinon

In linux I use netscape/mozilla to get the basic layout of the page going then edit it vim whenever I need to update it. I tried some of the other text editors, but netscape/mozilla does everything I need.

bluefish is a nice html editor. i had worked with golive on mac before. this is closer to the core. some knowledge of html is recommended anyway when you design websites. so why not give it a serious try? there´s an alternative called quanta. guess you can get it at quanta.sourceforge.org or so.
good luck

Dreamweaver doesn't add as much crap as other editors I've encountered, but it still adds quite a lot. It also doesn't do a good job at seperating style from structure (which is the point of mordern HTML/CSS). Dreamweaver is without a doubt the best in its field, but that doesn't make it good.

Have a look at Quanta + , it even has an excellent php debugger and syntax highlighting for everything except plain text.

Thanks for the replies guys.

dorward, as it happens i already know html, so there is no need for me to see the code , i wrote most of my site in Notepad, and was adding new things and editing it in frontpage/dreamweaver

I'm going to try some of the suggestions when i get home.

I don't understand. How does knowing HTML remove the need to see the code you are working on?

Don't worry, i know what i want it's me asking asking the questions

I don't really need to mess about with writing HTML now, the basics are done, i wanted to finish it up by aligning things the way i want them.

hehe, don't worry i'm just abit rubbish at explaining what i want.

greets.
