Those of you not wishing to learn the simple markup code of HTML may want to talk to others about using an HTML Editor, but peaking from experience, it is better to learn the HTML first, then later learn to use an HTML Editor software program. Your coding experience will greatly augment any necessary editing with Web page software programs.
Hint: Those of you wishing to go into Graphic Design or related field, start off by using the Adobe software such as the Creative Suite applications, which would call for GoLive as the HTML editor, PhotoShop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Bridge. Some releases of the Creative Suite now include Dreamweaver.
