I’ve been looking for an easy Web design program since I switched to Apple last September. Years ago, I learned HTML out of necessity when I wanted some stuff on our art museum site and had to do it myself in order to get it done. (As I recall, I had a martini each evening after dealing with code all day. And, BTW, the site looks a thousand percent better than when I was adding stuff to it! Kudos to whomever deserves it.)
Soon, the WYSIWYGs came out and I became a Microsoft Front Page user, although always grateful that I learned the basic HTML. I still use it often.
Fast forward to today. Although I am 100% devoted to Mac, I miss the ease of Front Page and still use it in the “Virtual PC” on my PowerBook. Oh, yes, I purchased DreamWeaver in November, but I can’t figure it out for the life of me. A quick introductory class at Boulder Digital Arts next Monday should help, but I can’t imagine I’ll be proficient anytime in the near future.
I was excited to see the Apple announcement for iWeb, which allows anyone to create Web sites, blogs, and podcasts. It looks very easy, but not like it will fulfill my needs. So, I throw it out there for the technology-challenged artists among you who want Web pages in a hurry. Seems like a dream just for you.
I would be ever so grateful if Microsoft would make a Front Page version for my beautiful Apple. Anyone have any pull there?
