to Build Web Pages
create lots of web pages or are managing a 'site', you might need to
augment your toolbox with a few 'helper' applications. Here's a sampling
of free products or the best in their class.
If you create your pages with a code editor or, heaven forbid, Notepad, VI or Emacs, then invest in a HTML validator. One such validator is: CSE HTML Validator which you can find at: www.htmlvalidator.com
Lots of WordPerfect files? Lotus? Excel, etc. and you don't like the web pages the office products produce? Get HTML Transit (www.htmltransit.com). It's expensive but worth it in labor saving.
Web Site Managers
If you have more than a dozen web pages to maintain, then consider yourself a web master. All real web masters use some kind of web-site maintenance tools.
Need to create a button, arrow, image map? Lots of drawing programs out there that will produce GIF and JPEG images. What's the best for under $100? Paint Shop Pro 5(~ $80; www.jasc.com) has been favorably compared to Adobe Photoshop (~ $700).
