I've used Microsoft Frontpage to design and manage a website for the last few years. The computer that I used recently crashed and I got a Macbook Air. Now I find myself in a bit of a bind. I'm not sure how to manage the website from my Macbook. Is there any way that I can use iWeb to manage it? Or, because I don't have Frontpage on my Mac, do I have to start from scratch? It would probably take me about 50 hours of work to rebuild the website from scratch using iWeb, so I'm REALLY hoping that there is some alternative solution.

Thanks for your help!

I haven't used Frontpage in years, and I've never used iWeb, even though I do have a Mac. What you might do is build one page with iWeb to your liking and compare it with the same page made in Frontpage. Then use the replace function in a plain text editor, i.e. not a rich text editor, to try to make the pages like the iWeb page. That will be a lot faster than editing them with iWeb. The replace function in Notepad and other plain text editors is a very powerful and fast tool which can be used to clean up and change the code on pages.

Actually I believe in doing pages the old fashioned way, using templates and copy and paste with a plain text editor, Notepad or Kwrite, then uploading the pages when completed via FTP. WYSIWYG editors obscure the page code and leave too much stuff on the page for my taste. Also, maintaining a copy of a website on a machine, both as a test of it's function and as a backup of the site in case it needs to be re-uploaded.
