    Default frontpage replacement suggestion

    after searching for almost a year, i have found two decent alternatives to micro$oft frontpage:

    1) $50

    SUPER EASY to use, but the company is slow in answering emails

    2) $50

    this one is a bit more difficult, but it has a REALLY cool feature - it can import existing front-page webpages! this one needs to get filed under 'how-cool-is-that'.

    i used this as a guide:

    both of these read and write its own 'internal' file, much like a word document. this makes it handly for collaboration.

    i have yet to see if they support templates well - thats my next challenge.

    i have used NVU and i LOVE it! it is a poor mans dreamweaver, and will do 90% of what dreamweaver will do. i just have two minor issues with it:

    1) it is not actively maintained, last release was three years ago
    2) there is a bit of a learning curve to it.

    my goal has been to find a quick and cheap way for the total novice to create a website.

    the winner: web-easy-professional. buy it on ebay and save $$$ money. web-easy-pro will also import existing websites!

    another easy free way to crank out webpages:

    1) move your images to your server
    2) go to googlepages, and use one of their templates to produce a nice webpage (have googlepages point to images on your server)
    3) on your server inside of an SSH session issue a:

    wget --output-document=index.html

    hey, it works!
