    Also the 'dummies' series are pretty good for starting out. A cheaper alternative is to use the tutorials that come with Dreamweaver. They're aimed strictly at the newbie so they're pretty easy to digest.

    Hey Guys,

    Does Publisher and Front page websites take longer to load then one made with dreamweaver?

    publisher obviously takes the longest, because it is not made for website creation..

    Frontpage is statistically faster than dreamweaver, simply because it uses eg. <font > tags, while dreamweaver uses <style > tags in the head of the document, which is much more space consuming. - Cheap, Modern web design.

    About your comment on publisher, 2003 version is made for websites!

    ok, sure, it has a website function in it, but Publisher was designed to create printed documents. It uses the position rule in HTML.. therefore creating pages and pages of code.

    Looks good for a new designer...

    you've obviously done this in publisher:
     <v:stroke color2="white [7]">
      <o:left v:ext="view" color="black [0]" color2="white [7]"/>
      <o:top v:ext="view" color="black [0]" color2="white [7]"/>
      <o:right v:ext="view" color="black [0]" color2="white [7]"/>
      <o:bottom v:ext="view" color="black [0]" color2="white [7]"/>
      <o:column v:ext="view" color="black [0]" color2="white [7]"/>
     </v:stroke> - Cheap, Modern web design.

    xerosis219 did it load ok for you, speed wise?

    im using godaddy!!

  14. #14
    yeah it loaded alright... but because of the way its coded, the images appear as broken before they are loaded...

    if your getting into photoshop, design something in there, then slice it, export it, and play around with it in dreamweaver..

    heres some examples of work i've done using that method:

    good luck! - Cheap, Modern web design.

    Publisher adds a load of junk to your html code, I would recommend that you just play around in dreamweaver a bit, its not really that hard

    I personally taught myself DreamWeaver, however, I've been around a couple of fantastic tutorial sites.
