There are a number of ways to create web pages. You could use a WYSIWYG program like Microsoft Frontpage, which is easy to use, but can leave messy HTML. Or you can code the whole thing by hand, using a text editor like Notepad - mind numbingly boring, and very hard work.

What you want is a compromise program, a program that gives you both power and ease of use. A program like 1st Page 2000. I've used a couple of HTML editor in my time, and I can safely say that this is the best I've seen. Especially at the price. FREE!

Everything you can ask for in an HTML editor is here - syntax highlighting, site management, built in FTP, spell checker, thesaurus, preview and the now obligatory wizards. Add to this extras like Tidy HTML (easier to read code), source compressor (makes your pages download quicker), a comprehensive help system, 450 Javascript/VBscripts and DHTML scripting, then you have a professional program. But it doesn't stop there. Another great feature is QuickModeSwitch, which allows to swap between 4 modes of operation - Normal, Easy, Advanced/Expert and Hardcore - each giving you different levels of tools and hand holding.

If you're looking for an HTML editor, don't look any further. As this program is free, how can you go wrong? Download it today, you won't regret it.
