     Dreamweaver can hide the HTML code details of pages from the user, making it possible for non-coders to create web pages and sites, it also lets users preview websites in locally-installed web browsers. Dreamweaver has site management tools such as FTP/SFTP and WebDAV file transfer with synchronization features, the ability to find and replace lines of text or code by search terms and regular expressions across the entire site, and a templating feature that allows single-source update of shared code and layout across entire sites without server-side includes or scripting. A great bonus with Dreamweaver is the number of languages that is offered, they vary from French, Chinese, German, Italian and Spanish.
     Dreamweaver allows you to update your site and check in modifications directly, end users can edit their web pages without help from yourself or any additional software and integrate the power of dynamic data into your web pages without the learning curve of mastering databases or XML coding. With the photoshop smart objects you make changes to the source image, and update your image in Dreamweaver without opening Photoshop. Dreamweaver is limited in terms of text styles and special effect and styling using CSS.


    FrontPage has Split View option to allow the user to code in Code View and preview in Design View without the hassle of switching from the Design and Code View tabs for each review. It also offers interactive buttons that gives users a new easy way to create web graphics for navigation and links, taking away the need for a complicated image editing package. The accessibility checker offered with FrontPage gives the users the ability to check if their code is standard compliant and that their web site is easily accessible for people with disabilities. An HTML optimizer is included to aid in optimizing code and to make it legible and quicker to process. For the web size you can find limitations with FrontPage when the lengthy process of updating the indices for these functions can end up to the connection timing out.


    KompoZer is a complete web authoring system that combines web file management and easy-to-use WYSIWYG web page editing capabilities found in Microsoft FrontPage, Adobe DreamWeaver and other programs. It is designed to be extremely easy to use, making it ideal for non technical computer users who want to create an attractive professional looking web site without needing to know HTML or web coding. It also has a new extended colorpicker that is more conformant to what most users are used to. With the css editor you can create stylesheets easily and manage the styles attached to your documents.
    I have learned about so many great reviews and maybe if I become more familiar with this web composer I could find it's limitaions but for now I see and have read and used an easy, no complaint system.
