No, but it is my weapon of choice for creating images. You will need some kind of graphics package.

DW gives you 'point and click' solutions to most tasks you will need for web design. But, IMO there is no substitute to knowing what you are doing with coding and I just work in DW code view nowadays. That makes it an expensive version of notepad! Having said that, it gave me the help and push I needed at the very start so you need to weigh up cost against how much you will need/use it.

Hope this is slightly clearer than mud for you.

there are some free but not so sophisticated options available.
selida2 (bit archaic) and html-kit
why dont you try these and the trial of dw and make your choice.
based on that
DW is a good program to begin with but not the only way

Hi Guys, Thanks for the response.....I am new to web developing although I have done a bit before I don't really feel ready to just use HTML codeing yet, so maybe Dreamweaver is a good place to start! Thanks again Guys, big help! :)

And.. if you are new to web desining, it would be relly easy, use the Design mode, then switch to Code to learn it. plus there is the behaviours and all that, you just have to click on what you want it to do and when you want to do it.. i found it really usefull to start off and still use it now ;-)

I recommend working in split view so you can see the code as it's created/edited.

Or that :).

which ever way is easier 4 u.
when you have learn some HTML code, use Notepad++ a different version of notepad that, like dreamweaver code view, changes the color of the text when you type it so you know you have it right ;)
