I haven't touched it since 1999 and I still can't wash away the ick. It
would be hard for a program to actually be worse than Frontpage was at
the time. Even if it did improve somewhat, I think recommending it to a
newbie is just sadistic.

re: w3schools.com, part of the reason I recommend it is it has examples
you can try out, where you write your markup in a textarea on the left,
and get to view the results on the right, directly in the browser.
