Default Advice on creating web pages

Going to try my luck at creating a webpage. Couple of questions:



1) What software do most designers use nowadays?

2) Is there a good book out there someone can suggest on creating web pages?

3) Any other advice on getting started?

Thanks.

I used "web expression" by microsoft for my BCIS class, it was a pain in the ***, so I half-assed it.

I use dreamweaver, just because I've always used it.

I acutally have a freeware program at home called coffee mug or something that I like, I prefer its ftp abilities.

I strongly suggest learning the code and learning programming. I hate building webpages now because I'm so out of the loop with all the new technology and code.

I think frontpage is the most noob friendly. Works just like ms word. But your pages will look like amateurish ***

Is it sad that the last time I created a web page I used a text editor?

I'm reasonably proficient in HTML, but all this fancy new stuff scares me.

+1 on Notepad++. Maybe not for someone inexperienced though...

I personally use Aptana. It's similar to Dreamweaver and has built in servers if you're planning on doing any PHP stuff. Plus its free.

Wordpress is actually really awesome too. I setup a blog for my wife with Wordpress so she could manage the content herself. There are also tons of free templates to choose from if you're lazy with the visual design aspect.

If I create a webpage, I still use a text editor. It's what the skilled people do.

And another +1 for Notepad++. I also personally like http://www.editpadlite.com/ as well.
