html comparison criteria

By sunshowers ·
I'm a technical writer who's department has decided to go "paperless". We have decided to develop our manuals in a CD-ROM format using an html editor. None of us have experience in this. We want to research the top names, which seem to be Microsoft Front Page, Macromedia Dremweaver, Adobe GoLive and even some off names like Namo Webeditor that we found just surfing the internet and seem to be low cost. What do you think of these editors??? I'd like to make a comparison chart but I'm not even sure what criteria I should be evaluating. If we don't give good reason we'll be stuck with the low cost/low end. Any ideas????

Dreamweaver is my pick!

I am building my website using Dreamweaver. It is nothing special but I have tested all of the above, Dreamweaver the best one. Frontpage over- formats; Adobe's GUI is not sleek and you cannot bring Namo's Webeditor alongside Macromedia's baby.

Personally I'd go with

Dreamweaver but first try out some various apps and see which you are more confortable with.

This is a big step and should not be rushed into without a lot of thought and even once it is setup I would keep both systems running in parrell for at least 6 mths just so you can sought out all the bugs that you will be introducing.

But when it's set up properly it will be a big advantage as it's far easier to carry around 1 CD and a LT than a car load of paper work.

But you will have to experiment with several various apps to see what you consider as best for your current level of experience.
