Creating Dynamic Web Pages (ZOPE)

Steve,

Thanks for the suggestion and sample web-site, I will definetly
check-it out.  Does DreamWaver support ASP then, or rather provide
support?  I mean, I know that you could just add the ASP code mixed in
with the HTML manually, but does it offer any RAD type tools to help
make using ASP easier?

Also, I thought that Dreamweaver was more of just a HTML Editor, while
something like Zope provided extra functionality, tools, wizards,
etc.. to allow you to create Dynamic Web-Sites quicker and easier?  I
am just trying to figure out where to concentrate my search for
software and tools.

I originally looked through the various *Freeware* web-sites for HTML
editors -- but there are so many of them out there (hard to pick one
from the other -- almost makes you want to go back to a plain old text
editor).  While some offer advantages over others, they all seem to
basically assist you in generating the HTML code for web-pages (either
by coding or using a WYSIWYG type interface)?

Thanks,

Hugh
