Hello,

I am wanting to create a web page for my wife's new business. Does anyone know of a decent but free web page maker. We just don't have the money to buy one yet.

Thanks

a free web page building tool that is useable on Windows would be Nvu it is similar to Dreamweaver to a point, just doesn't have all the bells and whistles like that.

I use it on Linux for my web designs, works great.

I don't really recommend using a "webpage maker" unless you want a sort of amateur website (which I think is not the case here), they sometimes add weird little things that no one can really understand.

IMO, it's best to learn HTML and use a simple text editor like notepad to build your webpages. Programmer's Notepad: http://www.pnotepad.org/ is a more powerful editor, directed toward programming and coding. I've started using it lately and so far it's working great.

Hope that helped :tazz:

Hi Firemedic,
I disagree with you :) .If you had to learn Java or some real programming language, you will see HTML really really easy, believe me.

Start learning it if you want, lots of people here will give you tips and guidance. Including me :tazz:

HTML isn't a difficult language to learn at all.

http://www.w3schools.com/ has a bunch of good tutorials, very easy to understand :tazz:

HTML looks very difficult to begin with and may look tramitizing however once you get going through it, it becomes relitivly easy. Also if you plan on buying a program latter on or are using a web web service overall they usually cause some kind of problem in the code every now and then. I find with front page 50% of the time i'm in HTML even though it was designed to simplify web design. Personnaly I believe knowing HTML is a must when creating a web site! :tazz:

90% of my code is done in html, the remainder is done with the wyswyg editor section just so I can make sure the layout is correct.

Ok, I think that the best thing for me to do is learn html. Do you have to use an animation program or is that all part of html
