I just read An Introduction to Amaya (W3C NOTE
20-February-1997) and have some questions. I hope you can help.
I am, by no stretch of the imagination, a Website
developer of any sophistication. I have just begun to learn HTML, but I have
built a few Websites for myself and friends using Front Page.
I am looking for a Website building tool that is
WYSIWYG and has the simplicity of use (user interface) that Front Page offers
but will allow me to expand the use of web components to build more
sophisticated Websites with more of the bells and whistles that have become
common on today's Websites i.e. automatic photo slide shows, text displays that
revolve and so on. Looking at 'view source' of existing Websites that have those
attributes and others, I see that they credit WC3 and so I assume the developers
My questions are:
1. For someone who is pretty limited
technologically, would Amaya be beyond my abilities to use?
2. Is it realistic for me to approach using Amaya
now with the idea that I can become even more adept at using it as my knowledge
of understanding and writing HTML grows. The idea being that somewhere down the
line, It will all come together for me?
3. Does Amaya offer a simple 'Publish' button for
uploading to a host or is uploading to a server only done through ftp?
4. Does an Amaya-built Website require or recommend
a Linux server on which to host it?
5. Is hosting an Amaya-built Website a fairly
common thing for most hosting companies such that they would not require much,
if anything, from me to prepare for my uploading the site to their
My current Website, built in Front Page, is TheWeekInCongress.com. It is obviously a
static Website and has been all I needed for a while. Now, I would look to using
Amaya to rebuild the site with more sophisticated attributes.
Thanks for any answers or clarifications you can
