WEB WYSIWYG editors (Quark Xpress, Adobe dreamweaver etc.)

    So I've been using the trial Dreamweaver and I really like it but layouts are kind of a bitch. I understand how to make them but there are a few things I don't like about it. I was told to get Quarks Xpress 7 since it's easy to create an html page anyway you want and I still haven't got a good grasp on it.


    Should I keep chugging a long with dreamweaver, purchase it or use something else?

    EDIT: I know it isn't considered a real we designers tool but oh well. :o

    i like dream weaver thus far

    and it is considered real web design as long as you know the code behind it.... if you dont know the code you will run into trouble (thats why I iz learning!)

    I also like to use dreamweaver as a learning tool as well. I create a layout or change something and see what I've done in the code.

    Quark is more a print layout tool, not meant for web design.

    dreamweaver is really nice as long as you grasp a little bit of html that u need to edit every now and then. oh yeah and I like how it completes the CSS syntaxes for you. It's always a good idea to have this laying next to you on the table, too. Helps me a lot:

    fireworks is sort of the imageready i guess ... i havent tried it out yet ... photoshop does what imageready used to ... slices n shit for web pages

    ultimately, learning the code > using the wysiwyg aspect of dreamweaver

    I don't get some parts of dreamweaver. I.e. layout mode and how limited it is. I must be doing something wrong. :o

    wtf, Fireworks has always been more web-minded than photoshop. Photoshop was meant to be a tool to edit, guess what, photos.

    How does the idea of 'web2.0' not have sliced tables? :squint:
