This is why I recommend a good HTML editor, like Homesite, that supplies
hotkeys/snippets/templates etc so you never really have to type HTML. I
dont use Dreamweaver myself but understand it's one of the few GUI based
HTML editors that produces relatively clean HTML.

No, it doesn't have the 'Frontpage look'. It does have the newbie look,
and also looks dramtically different in Netscape vs IE.

Most of my HTML work is in creating pages based on designs given as
Photoshop files. Frontpage is sort of a designer and layout package in
one. You might consider using Photoshop to get the exact look you want,
then implementing it in something like Homesite.

Btw, if you're gonna link to specific titles, you might
consider joining their affilitate program and make a few bucks.
