Hi,
I know you will fine tons if you just google for something like css layouts
or css example layouts. I wish I had some of the bookmarks I had before my
two computer crashes. I'd send you to some good places directly.

Nod I want to go with at least templates.  I have an editor that is just
fine with html I just wanted something that would build me a basic business
like page that I could restart this mess from.  I guess a template is a good
idea.

Hi,
Based on my experience with Dreamweaver, you might as well use something
else, because the WYSIWYG view stinks regarding accessibility. Notetab lite
and Notetab Pro are nice for HTML. So is EdSharp, but I haven't worked on it
to help it generate HTML beyond the snippets I contributed. If I crack open
a JavaScript book, I could probably make some more powerful automatic
snippets. One way to go might be to use one of the conversion utilities. For
CSS, though, I'm not sure what to use if you want to generate code. I'm sure
that you can pick up some templates for layouts easily.

Hi, Ken,

Currently, I'm rather taken with Emacs org-mode for writing web
content.  I've seen lots and lots of css code in the exported source
files.  I'd use a one row table as a navbar.  Links are enclosed in
pairs of brackets with the url and the description inside a nested
pair of brackets respectively.  Tables are created using a | (pipe) at
the beginning and end  of a row and each cell is separated by yet
another |.  Here's a really quick example:

|[[http://braille.wunderground.com][Check the
weather]]|[[Http://www.rfbd.org][Find audio Text
books]]|[[http://www.google.com][Search using google]]|

Put that all on one line, cut and paste it into a file you save with a
.org extension and then bring it up in Emacs.  Then, c-c c-e to
export, press h for html, give it a title, press enter and. wham!  To
see what it looks like, just bring the resulting html file up with
your favorite browser and see if it's what you want.

Muse Mode is another good authoring environment for Emacs.  I'm using
these examples because I recall you once posted that you have
Emacspeak set up on a machine somewhere?  Anyway, I recently
discovered these two modes and I am just loving them since you don't
have to write most of the html by hand.  The exported file is, of
course available and you can then tweak it to your own specifications
after most of the trivial stuff has been done for you.
If you want an accessible wysiwyg html editor that also lets you edit
the source code, KompoZer has worked out well for me.  It's a
Gecko-based html editor that has a wysiwig mode, a tag mode and a
source mode. It's pretty accessible though it could probably do with
some scripting.  If you want something even more high end, there's
always dreamweaver but  it's not free unlike the other stuff I
mentioned here.
The Microsoft tool I think you were going for is Frontpage.  It's
successor is callld SharePoint Designer.  I have never used it before
so I have no idea how accessible or inaccessible it is.

Some links:
Org mode:  http://orgmode.org/org.html
Muse Mode:  http://mwolson.org/projects/MuseQuickStart.html
KompoZer:  http://kompozer.net/

Good luck,
Alex M
