I usually plan out my site layout with pen and paper. Then I replicate it within Adobe Photoshop CS3.

If I'm lazy, I'll pull it into my WYSIWYG of choice (Adobe Dreamweaver CS3) and quickly make <div> tags to section off pieces of my site with their layout tool.

Otherwise, I'll hand code it till it looks like what I want it to be like.

Sounds like dreamweaver is pretty popular.


Anyone use Visual Web Developer Express? What has your experience been with that?

I've used Dreamweaver as a code development tool, not in designer mode. The designers where I work do love it, so there must be a reason.

Likewise--sketch out an idea, Photoshop it, slice it up and code it out in Notebook or something basic. Dreamweaver can be helpful if you're not familiar with hand-coding. Frontpage can get really messy in code. Flash is nice for some applications. If you're aiming to put together your own and are overwhelmed, there are some pretty decent downloadable stock templates (usually around $50-$100 generally for HTML site; Flash sites are more but can be overlooked by search engines and annoying) that can get you on your way.

I have a list of my favorite stock sites that I grab ideas from for my clients. I'm happy to share links with you if that sounds like something you'd be interested in...or you can search "website templates".

Yeah dreamweaver is great. I have also used NVU in the past. It's open source so its free of charge. It's definitely doesn't have all the features you're probably looking for, but it is simple to use. NVU

I have also used NVU. Simple and very good for designing HTML newsletters. I have also tried NetObjects Fusion. Takes a bit of learning. It is visual design software which then generates HTML code.

Dreamweaver is what I use, but unless you have the time/desire I'd outsource your web development.
