The Web Untangled PC Magazine Puts Eight Leading HTML Authoring Packages to the Test in Its Usability Labs. and the Winner Is


Lynch, Nicola, The Independent (London, England)


You may be thinking about setting up your own home page on the Internet, or your boss has had a brainwave and decided that your company is going to have a Web site and you are going to be in charge of setting it up. Either way, you are about to experience the first pangs of fear as you set about your task.

The main language used in creating Web sites is Hypertext Mark- Up Language (HTML), but if you're not into learning code, there is a raft of HTML packages ready to do the work for you. To help you pick the right package for your needs, PC Magazine has reviewed eight HTML authoring packages in its June 1998 edition, each of which will allow you to create a Web page without touching a line of code. They are Macromedia's Dreamweaver 1.0, Microsoft's FrontPage 98, NetObjects Fusion 2.0.2, Home Page 3.0, HoTMetal Pro 4.0, Adobe PageMill 3.0, Symantec's Visual Page 1.1 and WebMaster Suite 1.0. The packages are also relatively inexpensive, with those mentioned above ranging from pounds 69 to pounds 299 (ex VAT).
