Hi. Come over to Win7 and seems pretty good, the only thing is, what program
do you recommend using to build a website, now FrontPage is no longer?
Thanks in advance.

There is VODA, WebDwarf, PageBreeze, and dozens of others. Do you have
Google?

I like Expression Web, which is essentially just a new version of
Front Page, renamed.

Microsoft often likes to rename their new versions of a product,
rather than giving them a higher version number. Unfortunately that
confuses a lot of people, and thereby does us all a disservice.

A text editor will work nicely.

Your bets bet is Microsoft's successor to Frontpage, which is now called:

SHAREPOINT

I wish they kept Frotnpage name, but alas - they like to invent new &
confuse people!
Frontpage is old dated technology mainly centered around COM. Sharepoint
is center around the .Net technology, and they are paying some big $$$$$
for Sharepoint programmers.

If you want to stick with a Microsoft product, Visual Web Developer
2010, Express Edition, is available for FREE, and provides
functionality similar to FrontPage.

It's available as part of the Web Platform Installer:

FrontPage was never a good web design tool, and it was never included in
the operating system, it's part of MS Office or was available stand
alone.

Macromedia Dreamweaver CS would be my first choice.

Ok so it's between Visual Web Developer
2010, Express Edition and Expression Web?
Which one? never been able to make up my own mind.

As if you've come up with something credible. To wit:
Your bets [sic] bet is Microsoft's successor to Frontpage, which is now
called:

SHAREPOINT
No, it's called Expression Web. Sharepoint is a business collaboration
platform. See http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/en-us/Pages/default.aspx

Your blatant ignorance might confuse people like you.

Well if you're going to be doing Web development using HTML, JavaScript,
ASP, and Ajax etc etc -- all front-end solutions to building Web pages
quickly, then you'll express yourself and build the pages that can be
imported into Visual Web Developer 2010 EE, by using Expression Web.

Now, if you want to go beyond just building pages, like accessing Web
services, FTP etc, etc, using C# or VB .Net (heavy lifting) kind of
stuff, then you'll need Visual Web Developer 2010 EE.

sound and video. I would also like to have links to email, other websites.
It's a school website

By the way Expression web is on the costly side? How come it's that dear,
when Frontpage was bundled with Windows for free?

You're talking HTML, and you use Expression Web.

This machine running Win 7 and IIS7 will it be a public/Internet or
private/Intranet facing site?

I don't know ask MS. But I suspect it's a tool aimed at professionals.
You can make pages with all the bells and whistles using 2010 Web
Development Express Edition too which is free.

Well, in addition, if using IIS7 and Win 7 hosting it, then you'll need
to find information on how to harden IIS7 and Win 7. Otherwise, the site
will just be hack bait.

and Win 7 hosting IIS7 facing then public.
