[thelist] Suggestions for a WYSIWYG editor for a web dummy?

No. It's more of a hassle because the web USED TO BE a frontpage web.
Now, there are no frontpage components, as all the forms are coldfusionized
and anything else that used fp components are now dw.

Therefore, since FP components arent being used,
why should other people use it?

Hi Ari...

Actually, FP and DW will work well together. FP is extremely popular simply
because it's an Office product. I really would not suggest trying to fight
the power of the end-user comfort zone and attempting to retrain the mice on
a wheel you happen to like better.

Why not just create a FP web based on your DW template and leave them to it?

Proxy the web to something like http://fp.yourdomain.com and link to the
pages in this web as required.

Sounds like a lot less hassle!

Not if you're using ASP :o) Without "preserve existing HTML" ticked and
therefore ON, FP will eat your code.
