well ms word will do web pages but it clutters them up with a lot of code.

otherwise, PM/email me and I'll see what I can do about another method.

Macromedia Contribute is good for a novice - it's entirely WYSIWYG and make's it a doddle to update a static html website. But it will cost you about £120, I think, from somewhere like Amazon - cheaper than Dreamweaver though - which is the ferrari of web design proggies.

This guy is a novice; Macromedia software is for uber elite developers.

I suggest you get a book about HTML. If you need some javascript enhancements to your site, this site has lots of scripts to help make your site look more stylish/high-tech.

Russ. ...No-not a novice. I had used the full Macromedia in the past but have been out of practice for a few years. I taught myself HTML on Homesite a few years ago.

Sharky....Contribute will do the job.

Many thanks to all who replied.

If you keep an eye out for the free CD roms that come with some of the internet oriented magazines (like".net", or"PCPlus" etc) they sometimes have free website builders on them. I got a very acceptable version of Net Objects Fusion MX from one of these which is very similar in operation to MS Frontpage. PM me if you want to know more.

Do you want a web authoring tool because you want to learn HTML, client-side scripting etc or is it simply that you want to knock up a website? If the latter then you might want to consider going for a pre-built template - and there are plenty of these for free. Check www.elated.com/pagekits which has numerous freebie download templates - admittedly some are a wee bit too 'design over content' but there are a few which are relatively straightforward to flesh out with your own words & pictures. Even searching Google for 'web templates' will throw millions of matches - the best looking ones may cost you but they're generally only a few quid/dollars.

Another alternative is to use Photoshop (assuming you have it). PS allows you to build a layout graphically using various design elements and then export it to HTML.

Admittedly I may potentially be over-simplifying stuff here - it's kinda difficult to guage what level your knowlledge/interest might be. Fact is, there are thousand of ways of achieving a similar end.

Macromedia MX

Don't Macromedia do a 30 day trial?

If you've already got some experience why not go to the
site and see.

Two weeks catching up and two putting it together

It's cool cos the FTP is intergrated, so easy.
