Thread: Wepage Creation

  1. #1
    I hear there is an app that shows you the html code you create with a GUI that helps people new to web design.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    There's a few around - They're known as 'Graphical HTML authoring software' (or a variation)

    The two most popular are Microsoft FrontPage and Macromedia Dreamweaver. For the total newbie, use Microsoft FrontPage - it's the easiest of the two to learn with.

    After a while though, you should be bored with it (mainly because you can't do that much with it) - Switch to Dreamweaver, a more powerful but more technical designer instead.

    Hope that helps

    No such thing.
    You are trying to do two things at once.
    First of all, you want to display raw HTML code, like the stuff generated when you view source on this page.
    Then you want to display the result, the stuff you see before you when you click a link or type in a URL.
    You can do it, but not in one big mush-pot.

    Or, actually, how could I forget Frontpage? That piece of crap from Microsoft will gladly do it. They generate the page, and then shove the tags in front of every element the tags represent. The result is awful, ugly, and may scare you away from HTML for life. I think a program called Hotmetal Pro also did this, actually I'm sure of it...

    Tut tut tut - You seem to forget that Dreamweaver has a view which devotes half of the screen to each the graphical layout and the code of a web page

    geocities? Its a website hosting free and yes they have html creator for you. But I wonder if thats what he really wants. A page put up there by some automated website or else he wants to learns how to do it and acutally make them.

    @The Smoking Man, If you really want to learn fast and want something handy, Go with Frontpage and Dreamweaver! I agree with Illuminati & Wolfmight
