understandable, or I've used Microsoft Front Page, a fairly intuitive
authoring program that came as part of MS Office. Okay, they've replaced it
with MS Publisher, which I don't like as much, so I'm looking around for
something else to use.
The basics: I need to be able to fix and update web pages, so direct HTML
access is important (a pleasure with the 3 views (authoring, HTML, and
Preview) that Frontpage had).
But I also need something where I can apply some very nice looking templates
and generate stuff quickly. This is where MS Publisher and Frontpage let me
down. They're dull, not very changeable, and they don't sparkle.
Here are some examples of what I'm talking about:
http://www.sfgames.org/ was done with no Frontpage template, but took some
time to get it right;
This next one is closer to what I want to do. I used a Frontpage template
but it took forever to get it right. Also, if I go back and change
something, Frontpage threatens to reformat it back to the original template,
thus I have to edit the html parts directly to be sure it doesn't revert:
So, any ideas? Since I'm not intending to be a fulltime web developer I'd
prefer to use something easier than Dream Weaver. I've looked at it and the
learning curve is just too steep for me now.
