    The best soft for webdesign is DreamWeaver.

    Adobe photoshop
    Adobe illustrator
    Adobe fireworks

    Microsoft is not in the media business, Adobe is. Go with adobe.


    If you need a WYSIWYG, then I don't know. I just use notepad++.

    Hmm. I dislike all these visual web design tools when designing websites. I do just fine with Netbeans/Notepad++ and Photoshop.

    yeah, they give it free so that you'll use their product when you get into the real biznes, i think. :)

    I use mac and the web design combo are Adobe Photoshop and Panic's Coda.

    if you are new and want to do html,CSS, JS, PHP coding then go for

    DreamWeaver

    otherwise Visual Studio for .net development.

    Dreamweaver and photoshop are what most people prefer. But coding is easy especially simple html and css.

    To start off with just download xampp on your home computer and install wordpress and a theme.... start off by customizing your theme and go from there.

    If you don't want to pay/search for dreamweaver then go for Notepad++ which is a great coding tool the pros use.

    you can look in adobe dreamweaver, or if u dont like to code you can look into WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) its a soft that does the coding for you, jus have to place your media :p

    That's kind of old school...

    I'd always use a CMS (like wordpress / joomla/ drupal) and develop a custom template..

    You have far more options when you do that..

    stay away from the microsoft stuff, imho i think its pretty crap
    Adobe is the way to go
    The microsoft stuff is very very easy to use, but it cant do very much
    Dreamweaver isnt to hard at first, but it can get alot of real awesome stuff, alot more than most other software out there
