Web page design question
I want to make a web page for grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.
It doesn't have to be anything too fancy, but the page is mainly going to consist of images, and some text.
Anyone have suggestion on what program I should use?
On another note, I was thinking about making the page freehand, but instead decided to just post here to find faster, and easier alternatives.
frontpage express, netscape composer.. do a search on downloads.com for HTML editors.
and good old fashion notepad were the easiest way to go for me. I have tried the other programs, and found learning the program was harder than learning html.
The web monkey page made it very quick and easier to learn.
Done with FrontPage (Not sure if FP express as the option) but I created these
two photo galleries in under 2 minutes! Drag and Drop!

Dreamweaver 4 you can download a demo that will last ya long enough to make the site and its quick, easy, painless!

If you want to do it the old fashioned way, with notepad. Try this site: www.htmlgoodies.com. This guy is really good and its quick and easy to set up stuff.
Frontpage/ms word make really messy code. Try allaire homesite, it's easy to use and fast. You might go with frontpage express if you're new to html but personally I wouldn't even touch frontpage.
Or.. do as I did to learn HTML.!!! If you really like a page layout, view it's source code and try to change some things and play around with it.!
I have been coding HTML for awhile now. It is easier than you think. I think that you can get the job done with an editor for the sake of time. Just try to look at the code often to see what code is making things happen on screen. This will give you a better understanding of the code. You can always make improvements later and learning HTML can be intimidating at first so I would just go the easy route now. Front Page or composer would probably be the easiest as Dreamweaver is a very powerful/complex tool.
frontpage is really easy to use. Like mntsnow I can whip up a pic page really fast. The best part is auto thumbnail.
I just checked with ebay and you can find fp98 for $30 -$40
Amaya, made by the World Wide Web Consortium.
Its free. Its made by the people who set the standards. If you wanna learn something though, use source code, its dead easy to make smart little pages, and once you get good you can do the fancy stuff and start trying to use standards instead of just getting it to work
The World Wide Web Consortium was created in October 1994
to lead the World Wide Web to its full potential by developing common protocols that promote its evolution and ensure its interoperability. W3C has
