    then any comments <----------comments

    Or

    hard coding <--------answer

    then any comments <-------comments

    In general, I use Textpad with clip libraries installed for my needs. I do use Front Page when I am feeling too lazy to type HTML code, and in the rare cicumstance when it doesn't matter whether or not the code gets "bastardized".

    An example would be that I have to write some documentation for my job, and it needs to be in HTML format... I'd use Front Page for that, but personally I wouldn't really rely on it for anything else. The code it churns out is just plain ugly. Try using Front Page to create form, and you will see what I mean.

    many personal and general publicly known problems with frontpage. way too many to list but has probably been discussed many times over.

    I code manually in dreamweaver - I find the environment convenient and comfortable, and the colour coding and snippets are invaluable. Additionally, it's nice to have the predictive tag functionality especially when you find yourself using an element you haven't coded in a while

    Once in a blue moon I'll use design view but I find it unreliable and in the main I tend to upload changes and view them live.

    Well i'm not sure I like being told how to format my responses - so I'll ignore that bit completely.

    Ditto with Pennimus really: Dreamweaver in codeview - useful for it's auto tag complete, ftp, etc etc. Realy I just use it 'cos I can't be arsed to type path names for links or images.

    Nothing can bet hard coding really - I wish something could, but obviously the web design app developers are still a step or two behind. It's a difficult market for them I guess: there's no replacement for the thoughtful human brain really.

    sorry for the answer format just ignore it when you do like following formats. its just an idea on how to organize the answers really.

    Range56 do you personally use this html kit or you just got it from the net?
