I’m trying to get away from using tables to construct web pages and concentrate on using DIVs and stylesheets as they allow more flexibility, but are a damn site more finicky and convoluted. They also work differently rendering in different browsers and with todays usage of iPad and mobile devices I have to construct my pages to suit all browsers.
With that in mind I would love a program like MS Frontpage that you could position elements in a screen and it creates the coding behind it ready for tweaking. I’ve tried Dreamweaver CS5, but unless you use their templates, you still have to do a lot of the coding manually which sort of defeats the object of a graphical proggy.
I like to style my screen to a customer’s spec rather like creating a PowerPoint presentation (it does work, but has issues) and be able to position elements specifically. Manual coding can cover this but is very time-consuming and I spend loads of time checking the end product in at least 4 different browsers.
Any suggestions for a good proggy that I could use, ideally as I said if it’s free or at least initially free to try out?
