    They don't know how to use the <p> tag correctly, Since they are starting off the last paragraph with a </p> and ending it with one as well!

    That was either a very stupid mistake, or an excellent advertising ploy to get more people to take notice of their ad

    Wouldn't make much sense to be a ploy, The only people that are going to notice that mistake are webmasters and people that are familiar with HTML etc... And all those people know the FrontPage sucks.

    Why does Front Page suck?
    I am familiar with HTML. I don't think FP sucks at all.
    How much have you used FP 2003?
    Do you actually know it sucks from experience or do you just say it sucks because it is considered fashionable to say that Microsoft products suck?

    Blue arn't we bitter today?
    FP in my personal opinion is not very good.
    Yes, that is infact from personal experience.

    Try to make a page in FP and open it in notepad/wordpad... you will find a lot of "extra" code that you really dont need.

    I once cleaned a page out like that that had 48KB of "extra" code!

    go figure...

    I use notepad.
    I tried FP, tried dreamweaver... notepad is the best for me.

    I don't think FP sucks, I'm sure a lot of people find it quite handy.

    I'm sure a lot of people find macromedia's contribute program quite handy as well.

    I'd NEVER pay 100$ for that however, since its just an FTP client and a browser and a very basic html editor in one.

    Best,
    Eugene.

    I haven't used FP 2003 yet, but I did try out FP2002, and did not like it all. I did not find the user environment very easy to use compared to Dreamweaver. Now that I have become proficient in HTML XML and CSS I use Notepad about 90% of the time to code the site, then I fire up DW and blaze through CSSing all of it.

    When I first began webdesign all i used was frontpage, I couldn't do anything without it, FP was a god program. Now I haven't found any use for it.

    For the record I don't think M$ products suck, and I am not a trendy M$ hater, I use WinXP, Word, Excel, etc.. and love them they are great programs.

    Not to go offtopic or anything, but Trifolic are you a trendy M$ lover then?

    I don't see how it matters if you use XP, and office programs or not.

    By the way openoffice does everything office does and is free. I wouldn't call either one of them "great", they are just tools.

    just my two cents...


    Best,

    Frontpage is a pretty good product. I found the code it makes a lot cleaner than anything dreamweaver churns out.

    What do you find bitter about my post.
    I asked reasonable questions and Trifolic answered them reasonably.
    I am just curious as to the rational behind the statement. Not everyone is going to like every program.

    Well you sounded a bit snappy to me, I'm sorry I guess I misunderstood.

    I'd think that asking it like this:

    Why does Front Page suck?
    I am familiar with HTML. I don't think FP sucks at all. How much have you used FP 2003?
    or like that:

    How much have you used FP 2003? Do you actually know it sucks from experience or do you just say it sucks because it is considered fashionable to say that Microsoft products suck?
    are two diffrent sorts of Q's.
    and I'd think that the way you asked it was a bit snappy.

    Sorry, just sounded like that to me.

    Best,
    Eugene.

    I tried FP and wasn't to impressed with it. They have it at on a couple of boxes at work and when someone works on a page from our site on it, it puts all this garbage into the code which I have to clean.

    But the worse programme I toyed with was NetObjects. Did not impress me at all.

    see, here we go again.

    I just EXPLAINED why I thought your post to be snappy, I didn't actually say you did anything wrong.

    and you snapped at me again... or did you?

    lol, riiiiiiiiiiight... Dirty code, bad UI, and non fucntioning FP Extensions is what Frontpage is known for.

    Is this clean code :

    <P CLASS="MsoNormal" ALIGN="left" STYLE="margin-top: 5;
    margin-bottom: -7"><B><FONT SIZE="3"
    COLOR="#000000"><I><SPAN STYLE="mso-bidi-font-size:
    12.0pt"><FONT FACE="Goudy">PORK
    TENDERLION</FONT></SPAN></I><SPAN STYLE="mso-bidi-font
    -size: 12.0pt"><FONT FACE="Goudy"><I><SPAN STYLE="mso
    -tab-count: 1; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt"></SPAN>$
    12.95</I></FONT></SPAN></FONT></B></P>

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">

    HTML is the last thing that should be propietary...

    Pretty sad, when will people start proof-reading the banners before advertising them?
