This topic is for those, who mess with this stuff, and i think people can exchange experience here.

Recently i've started learning HTML and CSS and after learning some basics i wanted to make something worth, so here's the sketch of my future website (for roses). Unfortunately, i'll be able to code it only when i come back home next time...what do ya think?

Dreamweaver is a decent html/css editor.

In case you advance to php pages or a sql database, xampp is a good testing environment. Very little feature restrictions there, so don't use it as a hosting server for security reasons.

Do you use a program with a graphical interface to create your websites or do you purely code them?

I'm creating a website now for my student's job and doing it in pure code, using Dreamweaver to easily enter the tags and directly get a visual aid of how it looks.

Graphical web editors mostly just create tables depending on what 'boxes' you draw with the mouse. It is far better to build a layout based on css.

I don't know much about web designing but yours one about Roses Sova looks pretty. I'd only change the "Roses" logo Tongue

That's what I do, code the content in the HTML files and the layout in a separate css file. Takes some experimenting but I'm learning from it Smiley.

People don't have to expect some pro photo stuff or Flash on the site. Cause I've never worked with Flash and photo editing is not my thing either tongue. Used to play around with Paintshop Pro when I was 12 years old or so, never worked with Photoshop.

By the time i use what my friend adviced - the Notepad++. It's very simple and fast, without any lags or smth like that, but the thing i miss there is the list of possible things you can write, which appears nearby while u type. This can also avoid syntax errors (which notepad++ doesn't show) and make the process faster...

But i will also check the Dreamweaver to see what it can offer me. That will take some time till i advence to php or sql. Next week i'm home half of the time, we have an independence day, so i will take a look.

Can you tell me a bit of how do i insert some flash animation in my page?


PS. I've just seen i can resize this window you type your message in. That's awesome!

Embed flash: thanks to the 'special' browsers from microsoft, you will need to enter the path of the swf file and the dimensions twice in the embed code:


http://www.w3schools.com/flash/flash_inhtml.asp

<object width="550" height="400">
<param name="movie" value="somefilename.swf">
<embed src="somefilename.swf" width="550" height="400">
</embed>
</object>

ok, thanks. I suppose, adding flash animations rather, than gif animation is better, no?

Flash is so 2008 Wink. Not every device and bandwidth is able to "render" flash buttons.
For the easiest purpose you could use some basic Javascript framework animations.
But basically a good site is based on his content not on his presentation ^^ (at first case).
