MS Frontpage, easy to use?

Is frontpage easy to use?

I am far from using word and excel to their limits but can do most stuff on them.

Tried a demo of dreamweaver and couldn't even begin to use it.

Dont need anything super fantastic with flash video media stuff.

Just text and photos etc.

    personally I hate front page - though you may find it easier to use than dreamweaver, simply because you are familiar with MS products.

    I use this http://www.alleycode.com/ it's free

    swish max is much cheaper than dreamweaver if you want flash - but not as good obviously.

    Frontpage is possibly the worst possible tool you could use to build a website, it spews out meaningless/ cluttered code.

    Even for a simple site of just text and photos, I would use Dreamweaver, or code it in a text edotor like Notepad.

    alleycode is better than notepad imo, since it colour codes the tags. I used to use a wysiwyg editor until I realised the code they produce is crap.

    frontpage is brilliant for people who are used to microsoft word etc.

    its fine for a small site but the pros use dreamweaver !

    You mean Macromedia Flash - you can't use dreamweaver to produce flash content.

    That alleycode looks like a nice tool, but to be honest I'm happy with the text editor in DW - predictive text and CSS support is rreally good.

    Try using the tutorials on Dreamweaver. I'm using them at the moment. Very basic and easy to follow

    I hate frontpage. Once you know how to use dreamweaver the ending result is of a much higher quality than frontpage.
