    You can hate me all...

    ... but I prefer Visual Studio over Dreamweaver.

    And I liked FrontPage too.

    I think it was the cleaner look that set me off.

    I would never take the advice of anyone who says they like FrontPage. Not only has this product not been on the market for 4 years, it's always been known as the worst code generator of all time.

    VS over Dreamweaver? Talk about comparing apples and oranges but I don't recall them being the same product. Even if VS does have the same features, why would anyone spend that much money to do what DW does? Makes no sense at all but consider the source.

    You're not the only person who's told me that.

    I didn't pay for VS - I acquired it from MSDN Academic Alliance with my old school... along with several copies of various servers.
    With VS you can do coding in Visual Basic, C#, C++, Java (though that might be a dedicated version) as well as HTML coding. It's much more appealing for me to work in the same interface, and it should encourage me to do more coding... That's the plan anyway.

    You may want to consult the license section describing usage after leaving your institute of higher ed. Also possibly relevant is the section requiring only non-commercial usage.

    I'll have a look into that... the thought hadn't occurred to me. Although there is nothing to stop people from using it regardless...

    I have no intention of using it to get money... Although I can imagine MS having a pretty big fit at me if I was to!

    That's true of any editor but there are those widgets that help keep track of some things for you. I just remember what a pain it was to set it up so I've not used it to any extent. It's still laying around here somewhere.

    These days you just install it and it works, it is pretty painless. At least the professional edition is, I haven't used the express versions in a long while. I use it a lot for C++ and C#, some of the built in refactor tools are really handy.
