Jenny asks…

what is a good, yet inexpensive website design software for beginners?

I have a little knowledge of html but not much. I am looking to design a small business website (no buying or selling, just info). I have heard that there is good software out there that takes the html knowledge out of it but they are expensive. I want a relatively inexpensive one to start out with., but I want to be able to make the website look nice and original, not cookie-cutterish.

Manage Your Own Website 1.15 is a good one for learning, go to download.com and type in website design in the search bar and try one out before you buy it to see if you like it, they usually have a 10 to 30 day trial versions on all of the programs on download.com, i hope this helps any..

Summer answers:

Please, oh please, do not use Micro$oft anything for making a web page. You may have FrontPage extensions problems on some hosting sites.

Since you are a newbie, I recommend you start off using a free WYSIWYG Editor like NVU (http://nvudev.com/index.php). Once you learn HTML and CSS, you can still use this editor in Code View mode. Some other good free editors are:
Matrix Y2K 2005 and AceHTML 6 Pro. You can Google for these.

Looking for a good website design software?

I’m wondering if there is anything else out there other than Dreamweaver that offers simple website design for a small business. We want basic, but not too basic. I want to be able to edit and change things on the screen without using the HTML directly. Does anyone know of a good webdesign software other than paying $400 for Dreamweaver? Thanks!

Summer answers:

NVU is the best free alternative to Dreamweaver.

NVU – Finally! A complete Web Authoring System for Linux Desktop, Microsoft Windows and Macintosh users to rival programs like FrontPage and Dreamweaver. Nvu (pronounced N-view, for a “new view”) makes managing a web site a snap.

John asks…

Is a website like Webs.com and Moonfruit considered to be a website design software?

I need to know if website builders online (Webs.com, etc.) are also considered website design software‘s and if so, can you give me a good reason to explain it on my project? Thanks in advance.

Summer answers:

No, since it’s they’re showing the code in a UI manner

Mandy asks…

What is the latest website design software the professionals use?

I mean creating html/xhtml, that has options for extras like a wysiwyg interface, standard coding. maybe options for integration with php or asp (though its not essential).

I’ve been out of the game for a year or two so im rusty as to whats the latest software for this (on a windows platform). Thanks for any help with this matter 🙂
