Im making a website and im terrible at html.

Is there a program like frontpage that I can use to make a website- simple and easy?

do not use Frontpage, it's rubbish. I personally use Dreamweaver but it takes time to learn it.

In all seriousness, try Google, there are plenty of html tutorials out there.

Its not that bad if you know what your doing. If your planning to make websites in design view of any program then its really not going to be up to much anyways.

Do yourself a favour and learn the code. Its not like its hard. Any idiot can learn this.

Start here:

Atleast understand whats going on, then create in whatever program you so to desire.

No point buying (yeah like you were gonna) dreamweaver if you can pull it off in frontpage.

Though yeah dreamweaver is better, still 'utter trash' is alittle harsh from Marty over there.

And you'll need to learn css if you want the site to look like it wasnt made in the 90's.

And a graphics program if you want to make it look like anything other than pure shit.

In fairness, I haven't used it since Frontpage97. Knowing how Microsoft handle updates of Office, I just assumed nothing had changed.

Bitmaps are not compressed, jpeg's are. Using bitmaps is wasting space. It's also a terrible format.
that doesnt solve my problem though. is there a way to compress the image in a way that doesnt fudge them up?
