Where to... Frontpage 2003?

I want to get back into developing web sites.  I created one with Frontpage 98 --- that was 7 years ago.  A lot has changed.  I am now deciding on a new web development tool.  Ive narrowed my decision to Frontpage 2003 because I want to ease myself back into the game and not spend a lot of money and I figured MS Expressions Web Design Tool or Dreamweaver CS3 would be too much for me to handle right now.  

My question is; where can I buy Frontpage 2003 for under $100 !?

The only versions you will get for under $100 are ones like this:


or academic/student versions or upgrades (which you could use if you still have your copy of FP 98).

On a side note - dreamweaver isn't too hard to handle, and makes much better sites than frontpage IMHO.

If Expression Web is too much too handle, you should not be building website.  FP 2003 relies too much on FPSE which are no longer being supported by MS and most hosting companies are getting rid of them.  The code that Expression Web creates is compliant and relies more on CSS rather than the deprecated font tags.

Re-consider your business plan so you can stay ahead of the curve
