Good point, and a point in favor of IDEs in general. Too bad we're being
forced to choose between ease of use and good code.

With regards to Charles' dicussion of using FP vs. simply learning HTML, I
might point out that there's a lot more to building a website (and to
FrontPage) then simply writing the HTML.  Lots of things impact the
effectiveness and quality of your site - for *all* the readers of your site.
If your navigation is poor, you don't provide a search capability, your
links are broken, pages are unreachable, pages are too big, etc it hurts
everyone who is trying to use it.  I don't doubt that Charles understands
this, but it was completely omitted from his discussion of choosing a proper
tool.  FrontPage (and other web development tools) help address all these
areas, as well as many more practical problems that multiple people
collaborating on a web site experience.
