    I have both FrontPage and Dreamweaver but I never use FrontPage anymore. Dreamweaver is a really good program to code websites :)

    What I liked about Frontpage:
    Ease of use - it just seemed more intuitive to use
    Publishing to a website seems easier
    The 'Optimize HTML' feature which reduces the size of your pages while publishing

    What I liked about Dreamweaver:
    Better support for XHTML
    XHTML validator
    Doesn't create a "web" the way Frontpage does

    Basically, if I were a beginner, or using Frontpage extensions, I'd probably go with Frontpage.

    If I were trying to create nice cleaner XHTML code, or coding by hand and wasn't too crazy about using notepad, I'd probably choose Dreamweaver.

    Frontpage is so much easier to work with. I highly recommend this.
    Dreamweaver is confusing. To me anyway.

    Hehe, notepad for sure :p

    If I really have to choose between these 2, I'd prefer dreamweaver.

    I prefer Notepad and PHP Designer (it works on HTML documents too), but from these two programs I prefer Dreamwaver.

    Neither are good solutions at my advice...the best way to do efficient web development is to learn everything from scratch, without using any helping programs that do part of the job for you. After you are quite capable, then you can use theses programs to help you code and design faster but if there is a problem or something looking wrong, you will be able to get to the code and see at first sight what is the problem...I just had one client who told me Hey i'm unable to see your .php pages in Dreamweaver Design Mode...

    I'm using Dreamweaver only for the added functions like auto-complete, inline references, check-in and out and Site Management. There's no need to use anything else than notepad.

    Frontpage is old and out dated, nothing has really changed with this software, its still a home users website development tool that spews out poor WYSIWYG coding. Dreamweaver (although not perfect in generating code) is the industry standard, and feature rich. Theres really no comparison... which would you prefer a moped or a harley?

    Your information and this thread actually is outdated.

    Microsoft's current product is Microsoft Expression Web
    It creates standards based sites and the code is quite clean.

    While we will soon have a deluge of DW rocks and anything else sucks comments, I for one have actually tried Expression and it is quite good. I was suprised at how easy it was to create and change CSS based sites. It is certainly not the FrontPage of old.

    Currently I will probably end up using a mix of pure html and php in DW but work with the CSS on Expression.
