For the layout: XHTML for the basic page structure, CSS for the appearance.

For pulling pages together: PHP

For the graphics you will need some sort of image program - Photoshop is the most commonly accepted (and most expensive too).

To edit the code you can use something like Notepad++.

Maybe for doing the layouts and stuff, but personally I believe, a text editor (like notepad++ or similar) is better for the coding itself.

You may want to read this thread: http://forum.codecal...weaver-cs4.html

Ignoring all the racism that jord4nn said, there are plenty of reasons why to use Notepad++ instead of Dreamweaver. I personally do not recommend a WYSIWYG.

I honestly believe that if you want to be a real web developer, you should only use the standard Notepad included in Windows (which I'm assuming you use).
To learn the languages described earlier (and JavaScript), use W3Schools.

she did a great job, you may take a look here

it really depends on what kind of website you want to run

but if i were a starter, i agree, use notepad
when you are happy with your tr, td
you can use DW for fun, if you insist
i know there are some actual web designers who use DW to code great sites in the pasts...but hmm yeah

How was your build season?

And Dreamweaver isn't bad, it's just... too... simple.

If you just started in web developing, I suggest you to use Dreamweaver :)

Most designers use Dreamweaver, but most developers choose to use text editors or IDE's. I myself prefer to use text editors at least then I know my code so it is easier to edit it. As Dreamweaver, they create everything for you.

As for the actual question you are asking, Xav's post is most probably the most helpful.
