That is a good point, but again, one can skim and scan the W3C docs very easily. Examples are numerous and easy to find (generally right after a description of use). Anyway, this discussion is way off-topic for this list, so for the bottom line: Use the right tool for the right job. GIMP and OOo are not meant as web design tools (although you can probably get away with using both in a pinch). OOo is an office suite and GIMP is an image manipulation program. Depending on your platform, there is a ton of tools available to get you going in the right direction without being complex or hard to use. I even have a few recommendations: Windows: NoteTab (requires at least basic knowledge) CoffeeCup HTML Editor (free or paid version, both are awesome) Notepad (requires at least basic knowledge) *Nix: Quanta Bluefish vim (requires at least basic knowledge) CoffeeCup HTML Editor I cannot recommend for Mac as I have no clue what's available. Of the ones that I didn't mark as requiring basic knowledge, they all have a list of tags and at least CoffeeCup has several wizards to get you going on the right foot. The latest version for Windows also has a WYSIWYG mode. vim and NoteTab both offer syntax highlighting to make up for the lack of automation that the others provide (although last I checked, NoteTab did offer a list of valid tags). : Last time I checked, there was a Linux version of CoffeeCup's HTML editor, but it's been a while since I've looked at that. I generally resort to vim on *Nix. -- Yours In Christ, PIT Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
