Hi,

I'm working on my first website actually 2 websites. I'll explain.

I have a website for my business, Avon; the content of the page is inserted into a large text box. There are no controls for font size, type or colour actually no controls for anything at all. So, the information I input must be html, I have some, which I've cut and pasted from different sources for pictures. My other site is a free site, which will allow me to visually drag and drop the page, then view the code.

I have Microsoft publisher on my computer but I can't find a way to just display the code from my visual page.

The free site's html contains a lot more, backgrounds, banners etc. I don't know how to "pull" what I want out of this code to copy into the Avon site.

I've tried the free trial of coffee cup, but the 1 feature I need, is disabled. I also tried AceHTML. I don’t really want to purchase anything, if anyone has some suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much

Samm

Hi Samm:

Little late answering this, but you may still be interested in some suggestions. I would recommend you not use Micosoft's Publisher. It has too much html code which causes problems with browsers parsing the pages. Validating your pages would also be a problem.

Not too sure about your business site's editor as you described it. It sounds as you have the basic text editor preference set. Might check your hosting sites' Preference settings for the editor and see if it provides a WYSIWYG Editor.

You might try NVU as your editor (free WYSIWYG Editor) and see if it will work for both your business and free site. You can also register (free) and download a trial version of Dreamweaver 8.

Not sure if this is what you had in mind for suggestions, but it's a start.
