is a superb design application, and is used by many professional designers - myself included. It's a powerful program, especially where data-driven sites are concerned, and every bit as capable as, say, Macromedia DreamWeaver. THe big advantage with FrontPage is that it has a fairly gentle learnig curve, and even a complete beginner can soon turn out a pretty respectable site.
NOF 8.0 is also an excellent program, and I use it regularly. It's the kind of program that keeps pace with you as your expertise increases, and some people never use anything else.
