Pito Salas: Web authoring tools stink
Pito Salas: Web authoring tools stink. It seems that there are two extremes: On the one hand, low end tools which are buggy and produce incredibly complex and obscure html and relatively baroque sites. And on the othe rside we have powerful kitchen-sink systems suitable for authoring microsoft.com (yes, I suspect they don't use Front Page for that :-) that require you to become expert in all the exotica of html, style sheets. I spent several hours with Dreamweaver (which is apparently the favorite among experts,) Front Page and looking at several others... I am back to using a somewhat mediocre tool called Namo Web Editor which at least is simple so you can just use it.
