    well mate, that is about point of view.
    if u running on a free host and got 100mb free space you must go for static website. i would suggest dreamwaver or serif webplus x6.
    if u going to update your site on daily base and got some payed host then joomla or wordpress is fine.
    i would suggest wordpress since it have a good variety of templates and plugins. but it really depends on what kind ofwebsite u intend to build, what is its use (blog, proffesional, news.......) and what fits better to you. there is not best or worst in my opinion its all about what you intend to do and what will you use it for. if you are not very experienced on web designing then try worpress since its easy to install and plugins would help you a lot with inside seo.

    You can use wordpress and get a free theme that you like and edit it a bit. But if you meant designing it from scratch... you would need photoshop and dreamweaver.

    Artisteer is decent for building templates from scratch imo...If your new to web designing then I'd recommend working with wordpress using some of the free designs out there until you understand the basics of what you want to do. good luck

    Go with dreamweaver.. But do yourself a favor, learn html and css, it's really not that hard. That way you can customize your site to whatever you want but also save time by using dreamweaver. Dreamweaver is user friendly, but also makes it easier/faster to code your website.

    Artisteer is really good for user friendliness, but apparently shit for seo friendliness.

    Dreamweaver. Best in class, plus there's tons and tons of step by step traning available online from all the usual sources, so you can learn and be up and running quality sites within a week or two if you apply yourself.

    Microsoft Web Expresions is great but if you are looking on making a business out of it you must know how to use different options not just one...

    I use Artisteer for designing part and import it into Dreamweaver for keywords, discription for each page.

    But html and basic css is a must. I suggest you hit w3schools to learn some.

    Good Luck

    Why do you want software for this, just use wordpress/joomla/drupal etc theme for this, you can change alot inside the dashboard or with a little bit of coding, and there is lot's of tutorials etc. on the web

    If you really want to design websites, like some unique ones, you only need your imagination and Notepad on your PC or Dreamweaver.

    Well i have worked on Dreamweaver for years and with a couple of extensions it really is promising and what you can do with it is just incredible. Lately i discovered a new program called WYSIWYG meaning What you see is what you get website builder. It's a definite choice for starters beginning or learning web site development. Very easy to use and straightforward tools here.
