    well my opinion is:

    frontpage makes making a website a piece of cake, thus all you have to concentrate on are the graphics and the looks. is super tidy, if that's what you are looking for but a big diffrence than dream, you can't make your own graphics. as in dream you program and create with flash and make a flash website, that's a diffrence with frontpage. frontpage you make clean html and you have to add active scripts to input flash objects.

    dream makes a more cool, cartoony, sci-fi effect to your site.
    frontpage makes a highly proffessional design.

    you choose.

    The code the Dreamweaver creates is cleaner and more compliant than that by Frontpage, it can also check your code against a number of server technolgies and standards (XHTML, ASP, PHP, ColdFusion etc)

    Dreamweaver is better - it has a great reference guide for HTML/CSS/JS which alone, at least for me, makes it the best editor out there (since i don't actually use the editor, just do some stuff on it if i don't know how to code it, then copy the code). Other than that, Dreamweaver's better 'cause it doesn't put quite as much useless code (but still enough), and it's not from M$

    I don't know about other features that these progs have as i rarely use them. But from what i know, Dreamweaver > all similar progs.

    dreamweaver dreamweaver dreamweaver
    i can't think of anything bad with it apart from not dealing with unicode well
    css support, server models, the property inspector & the inbuilt reference
    along with built in ftp, wysiwyg editing and rendering includes

    if you want to learn publishing for http then use dreamweaver
    frontpage is a waste of time and it will teach you little [and what it does teach will likely be bad habits]

    Which is better? It all depends on what you're looking for.

    If you just want to put up some personal pages or keep your website on the hobby level, FrontPage is probably OK.

    If you plan to be a professional, or want to develop professional-level skills, you'd probably be better off learning Dreamweaver and other Macromedia products. The learning curve may be higher, but the results will be worth it.

    Here's a site that compares them. It's not a comparison between the latest versions, but it should give you a good idea of how they stack up:

    I'm not a professional graphics person, but I did work for a group of newspapers several years ago. One of the graphics people recommended Dreamweaver. As a paginator, I was already familiar with Quark, Photoshop, and Illustrator, at least on basic levels, and found it relatively easy to get stuff done in Dreamweaver. There are some good books out there on Dreamweaver.
