    Maintaining web pages

    Fellow Loungers
    Up 'till now, I have managed to avoid creating/maintaining web pages, regarding this as a black art I would be better off staying well away from.
    I have now (been) volunteered to look after some pages (which already exist) for my walking club. I had fondly imagined that MS Publisher would handle this miniscule task, but eventually found, buried about 8 layers deep in Help, that it cannot be used to maintain 'pages which have already been published to the web, i.e. already written in HTML'.
    I don't want to get into the hassle of buying web page software for admittedly infrequent task, so the question is "Is there any freeware web page maintenance software I can acquire"? - preferably with a louger's seal of approval
    Until then, I am carrying out the task by editing (VERY carefully) the HTML files.
    Thanks

    Re: Maintaining web pages

    Well, I can't give you an endorsement on it since I already use HotDog Pro (not free), but you might take a look at Ace HTML Freeware at this site. The parent at the site is List of Lists with which I've been pretty satisfied. Lots of stuff at the site, but it takes awhile looking.....

    Re: Maintaining web pages

    I edit my web pages locally on my PC using a combination of Front Page, IE, Word and Word Pad.

    I carefully make all links relative links so I can create the web structure on my PC and then just use FTP to put the pages at my web site at my ISP.

    Thanks to BigAl, DaveA and Howard.
    I am now giving Ace HTML a trial - I am impressed with its syntax checking and it overall checking ie checking for missing links, working out how fast it will download etc. as well as the 'basic' stuff like inserting HTML tags for font colour, bold etc. It makes life a lot easier.
    I have looked at Jesse6 and it looks intriguing, too. Not downloaded it yet, but will keep it in mind.
    I am amazed at the amount, and quality, of freeware out there.
    Thanks again, loungers!

    Re: Maintaining web pages

    Silverback, I have a product called EasyHTML. It is (was?) freeware from a fellow in Finland. I check ed his "old" website, but I suspect he has moved. Maybe a Google search for "Easy software" might help. I will try and see if I can find the source. <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20>
