I think that's probably what were gonna do, I know we start CSS later, so I'll think that's what's gonna happen.

Like all we worry about now, is getting the code to work.

It's hard to tell myself to stop using quotes and closing paragraphs and so on.

I know most of the people here are great at coding applications, but apparently it doesn't carry over so easily to web design. Me, I'm a few levels below beginner.

John and Jordan own a web hosting company, and lots of us are skilled web designers - I know Jaan has a knack for PHP, and as for TcM... he's just legend. :D

How about giving web design a go? It's great to see your own site nestled in with Google's other search results, and has lots of ability to write scripts/apps within the pages.

You've even got 'php' in your bloody nickname! I think you qualify for a decent web designer. :)

I'm getting better also, finished the section of my course with CSS and HTML. Nothing really new to me but I got some practice.

Were starting to use Dreamwaver soon, which will be new to me.

lol, Thanks Xav

Chili5, dreamweaver is the easiest thing to use, but get ready for it to give you some errors, its not the BEST thing out there, but I still like it.

dont use it because you dont know enough HTML or Javascript, use it because it makes it much faster to code.

We did HTML and CSS by hand first with notepad before starting in dreamweaver so we can fix any mistakes that it makes and have better control.

I still prefer to write all my code with a text editor because I get better control.

I'm doing some of that on my own time. Dreamweaver is part of a school course so I have not much choice but to learn to use it.

We had to use an ancient version of Dreamweaver. It's honestly no better than Microsoft Visual Web Developer, unless you really are a noob at how web design fits together.

Dreamweaver being on par with a Microsoft application? I just can't imagine that, I always think of Dreamweaver as such a great web design program, although I suppose an older version would have more flaws.
