As a developer, Expression Web 2 is my preferred editor due to its extensive functionality, which also contributes to its intimidating layout from a new-user perspective. In your case, my recommendation would be Apple's iWeb (Mac OS X only), which is perhaps the easiest editor to learn/use while including a variety of templates to minimize the initial grunt work. If you're under a Windows constraint, however, Dreamweaver CS4 would be my recommendation as the closest product to a combination of Expression Web's functionality and iWeb's user-friendly design.
Our business is looking to create a new website (our old one was created with the now defunct FrontPage), and we'd like to use newer, still-current software. Several people in our organization will be responsible for designing and updating the site, but only one of us has some ability with html. For this reason, we'd like something featuring a wysiwyg layout. We'd also like to use a program with a very current (our business appeals to mostly young customers [10 - 20 year olds] who require a bit of "entertainment" to keep their interest) and very complete list of features. We've checked into Microsoft Expression Web and Dreamweaver, but we're a bit timid about getting involved in software that may be too complicated and too far "over our heads." Can someone recommend a web creating software program that is very stable, has a very simple interface, yet is still very powerful? Thanks. We would greatly appreciate any and all suggestions.
