If you make webpages, how do you create them? What tools do you use?
PowerMac G4 tower
Like I said, old school.
Honestly, I'd rather do it that way, but I haven't had the time to really polish my HTML skills. I'd rather use the tools and tweak the results.
I started out clueless and used the aol editors, but got frustrated with not being able to do what I wanted and same as above now, just type it out in notepad, for what I don't know (which is a lot) I'll try to look it up on a site that teaches that stuff but I've found it's easier to just go where I've seen what I want done before, view the source, and steal the code from there.
Hi, I use
and a must have is notepad!
I also use front page when a client requests it or plans on doing their own site maintenance. plus i have 12 other programs for tweaking, link checking,tags,submissions and on and on
IrfanView (for conversions, etc.)
I also use either WS_FTP Lite or SmartFTP to upload the files.
When I want to use WYSIWYG (which isn't often, because I hate code bloat): Netscape Communicator (code bloat is even worse with Front Page).

I do all my web sites and pages with Yahoo's geocities pagebuilder.
Here is my main site.
Dr. Chevette's Web Connection
I use Editpad (much better than notepad ) and Paint Shop Pro.
Even though I've been writing embedded and PC software for 15 years, I've never gotten involved with HTML so I bought a simple little editing tool to help me out.
(My buds swear by Notepad... I can hear 'em snickering at me now)
Brian cool page, and great, (?).
I use CoolPageWebmaster,
Frontpage,notepad,Irfanview, and a lot of others including trafficseeker.
I would like to mention something about your site.
E-Me and I'll tell ya.
Thanks for all the great replies. Someone else pointed me in the direction of http://www.evrsoft.com/1stpage/ which looks awesome, and is free.
JPT, I just sent ya an email.
why on earth anyone would use notepad is beyond me - the amount of time that you waste typing out stuff like tables when you can just drag and drop them with a half decent tool is ridiculous

Um...perhaps because Notepad is free?....
And again, old school. Same reason I like DOS.
I hadn't even thought about that!
If I had to use a text editor to create pages I would use something like programmers file editor which is also free - but for my mind you can't beat a decent wysiwyg editor.
Netscape Composer & Arachnophilia, a dozen or so image viewers, and SmartFTP to upload.
I'm playing around with Edit Pad (suggested here); I'll give programmer's file editor a try, too.
Titus, what version of Arachnophilia are you using?
Personally, I was using SmartFTP, but I got annoyed real fast with the "upgrade to SmartFTP Pro" window that popped up every time I started the program.
G'day Don, Arachnophilia 3.9 this way.
I just started experimenting with SmartFTP recently, seeing how it goes.
You know he's gone to version 5, right? Except that it's a completely Java-driven program now?
I'm not liking it as much as I did version 4.
