These are good programs, but I have found that it’s best to write html without the assistance of a WYSIWYG program. because Website Development 3 it makes clean uncluttered web pages and have those pages do things that are otherwise unavailable to a WYSIWYG tool, a developer needs a strong grasp of HTML.
