You should probably start using dreamweaver. It's an incredible piece of software, you can switch between code view and a format similar to frontpage with visual display. The code highlighting is excellent, and support many different formats including CSS, HTML, Javascript and PHP. Once you've got the basic of dreamweaver down then you shuold also start learning PHP for some advanced server-side options. You can create all kinds such as contact forms, payment systems, forums. There are thousands of tutorials online for php, google 'php 101' for the one i first used, it's really good. Good luck and welcome to the world of web development!

Hello Dan, I can see you have not started developing your site still. If its not a store and its only about content and some image galleries means, I suggest you to go with wordpress cms based website. Its a free and easy to manage content management system. You can find so many free templates and plugins to satisfy all your requirements. It needs just PHP and MySQL (only one database) in your hosting. You can install and configure it yourself. You can do your own design with lot of features. If you have any doubt, just search the web with "wordpress tips and tricks". You will get a lot of results with useful informations. If you got into any type of trouble, please post it here. I will try my best to help you. Good luck. Thanks, Bala

If you use Frontpage and Dreamweaver, don't expect a lot of help from Web Designers/Developers. They seem to cringe when they see the code.

I have to recommend XStandard since it does good in writing web standard compliant markup for a WYSIWYG editor.

Also don't forget to learn (X)HTML Strict and CSS, you'll need to learn this to have a better understanding of the markup and styling.



Cheers,
