front page!!! ooooerrr ... !!!

On the subject of bloated 'mel and software I recommend using apps like Dreamweaver/ Cyberstudio etc if only for their speed. I still use them when needed, sometimes thats all that companies have on their machines, but strongly insist on trimming the code in wordpad/ simpletext etc.
I have found this to be the fastest method.
Recently I had to adapt a 100 page site to style sheets. Thanks to global search and replace, not available on text editors, it took me around 3 mins to trash all font tags - over 6,000 in all!!! How long would this have taken to do by hand ?

>an earlier post on bloated html mentioned consumer software but moved
swiftly onto other things

we teach basic web design using front page + home page to people who can
rarely use anything other than a word processor (big demand from the
average clip art user)

we try to insist they learn basic html, so I'd be up for teaching them
about some of the niceties of fast downloads, with a view to avoiding the
prospective bandwidth drought (especially if they're left to Publisher,
which creates A4 sized gifs)

They're not going to be building big and clever sites, but I think we do
use tables rather a lot to control positioning
