    Frontpage sucks balls.

    If you're a student, you can get Microsoft Expression Studio (Expression Web replaced Frontpage) for free through Microsoft Dreamspark.

    Personally notepad is the way to go.

    Dreamweaver definitely. Only go for Frontpage if you have no idea about computers or how to work them/want to make a really crap website. :yep:

    Dreamweaver has quite a lot of nice templates if you're not too good at designing your own.

    To get it on the net you will have to pay for hosting with a company and for the domain. edit: unless you have your own server which im assuming you don't.

    Really easy to use as well.

    One of my friends at college tried making a website with Publisher I know its possible but wouldn't validate and was wondering why.

    Notepad++ is what its called I think. Excellent piece of software. But anyway, Dreamweaver.

    Dreamweaver but I don't use either.

    Loads of ways to get your site on the net:

    - find a free hosting company
    - buy some server space off a hosting company
    - get some software off the internet to run a web server through your home IP address

    and more.

    if you know HTML then basically just type out your html of notepad and save it as index.html or whatever name but with the .html on the end, then when you open that file it will be a webpage!

    Well what scenario are you in? You could use an FTP client... this basically transfers files from your PC to the host server. or some web hosters give you an online html uploader/writer like plesk.

    Although I much rather prefer to code websites completely from scratch, Its not that hard.
