I looked up Actual Drawing, found this: http://www.pysoft.com/ActualDrawingMainPage.html

Looks good for a beginner, as it does a lot of stuff all in one program, however, how well it does that stuff, not sure.

Most professional web developers create code by hand, and use different programs that specialize in what they need to do.

Myself, I use Homesite (previously Allaire, now Macromedia) for my coding, use Photoshop for image editing/manipulation, CuteFTP for ftping, etc...


If you are just looking for a good WYSIWYG editor, try Dreaweaver, never used it, but supposed to be pretty good.  

i believe this is similar to Homesite, and free, never used it but it's recommended a lot on here, probably better for hand coding than WYSIWYG however.

Ok the thing is
I am a coder,
that is what i do,
but i am trying to make my sites look a bit more "pretty"

so i was looking for something simple to use to get it up and running
Now actual drawing has about 10 different templates you can use...which is good for me i think

I have looked at homesite, but it is not really what i was after

Ultradev is what i code in, it gets me by

ahh...

ok, well most graphic designers will do a mockup of a site in Photoshop, then the developers (us) get to slice it up in ImageReady...

if you are not comfortable doing the actual design for a site (i'd rather not myself) then i suppose you can go the route of the software you are looking at.  

I don't however, have any experience with software that comes with templates like that, sorry!
