NTLK Re: off topic-Used Macs & Web Building Software

Mr. Dog-

Several years ago, I bought a used Powerbook 140 from Shreve, and haven't
had any problems with it. Having said that, I too have heard vague rumblings
about Shreve not being a good place to go, but I just thought I should point
out that I had no problem myself.

Regarding website building, I do it for a living, and I use Dreamweaver and
BBEdit. The two of them work together (in fact, BBEdit comes bundled with
Dreamweaver). You need them both because, although using a WYSIWYG editor
like Dreamweaver is handy, you sometimes need to edit the actual code (with
BBEdit) because DW either did something weird, or you need to change or add
something that's easier to do to the actual HTML.

Hope this helps!
