Hi,

I am a consumer who wants to build a webpage. I have a mac and a pc.

I want to be able to do the following:

Edit and Add: Text-Sound-Pictures-Moving Images-Animation to my web page

I want the software to be user friendly

What is the most user friendly software that is able to excute the above?


Thanks for Your Times and Considerations

Here are your top choices:

Macromedia's Dreamweaver:  This it the best Graphic (WYSIWYG) editor out there right now.  Creates good cross browser sites.

Another good one is : FrontPage 2000 (for the novice users) Good Site Management capabilities (but some features are limited to Frontpage extension which your ISP has to support)

Another good one is NetObjects Fusion 5.0- It is awesome for Rapid development and You don't need to know a thing about HTML as in Frontpage.  It has really good site management features and generates code that is relatively cross browser.

The best one (with no background) is either FrontPage or NetObject Fusions...
FP has books available on it (make sure the books you get are from Microsoft Press as they are the best ones in this topic)  NetObjects Fusion is very easy to use but I don't think there are books any updated books on Netobjects Fusion (last version the books are on is 3) and Netobjects is upto version 5.

Dreamweaver has a little more of a learning curve but is really good and powerful.  It gives you more flexibility once you get more familiar with web development.  There are books on it that are good.

There are plenty of online resources too:
