It would be really helpful if people could give me some specific pro's and con's of each. As well as suggesting any other progran which people think might be even better than the two mentioned above.
Finally what do people think about buying templates? And then doing some more editing in FP or dreamweaver?
Here is a discussion which addresses some of what you are asking: [webmasterworld.com...]
I personally learned HTML with DW as FrontPage had a pretty bad rap at the time... but I only hand code these days. Either will get you to a stage where you will no longer need the GUI interface.
I started out using FP which I recommend for the purpose decribed above. It is somewhat easier to use than DW.
