Frontpage will not work as it is definately *not* standards compliant.

Free hosted websites may add code to your pages. Usually this code is
not standards compliant. But if you pay for hosting you can expect only
your code on your webpages, an administration interface like CPanel and
paid support.

Seamonkey, NVu and KompoZer (released in that order) will change or
delete code imported from elsewhere but are free OSS. Dreamweaver costs

I have not recommended any of these, my recommendation for good
Standards Compliant code would be Amaya. The more you want to do however
the more hand coding will be necessary in any environment.

This question is absolutely not relevant on this list. I am surprised
that the rest of the discussion has got this far without being pinged.

Can someone recommend a better forum for beginner questions re web
design, i never used any mailing-lists when starting out, though i am in
css-d and nzphpug now, but i feel neither is appropriate for Greg.
