I am in the middle stages of setting up a small home business on the Internet,
and am going to be creating a Web Page (Pages) for the Business site.
If you have had some experience in say basic, bat's, memory managers. plc programing, panelview programing; Which Program would get you a presence on the Internet without a terrible learning curve: Front Page or Dreamweaver ( homesite)??? I know it may take some time with either, but for now, which one? I understand that Dreamweaver is a better overall site developer, and should I invest the time and brain power now, since I may use it in the future, or should I use Front Page?
Another question is: They must be 50,000 hosting sites to choose from, if you were starting a small business on the Internet, who would you use to Host with and why?
Thanks for your input.....I am sure I will need all or any advice I can get.

Personally I found Dreamweaver much more intuitive, and the code it generates is much cleaner, which means it's easier if you need to tweak it by hand later. In fact I'm not much of a fan of Frontpage all round.

As for hosting, it depends exactly what you want. If you are still learning server-side stuff, especially ASP, I would recommend Brinkster.com, simply because of their support forums. I found them incredibly useful!

I only just started working with Dreamweaver Mx after using Front Page. I find Dreamweaver to be a much quicker learn than Front Page.

We're going to make the merry-go-round go faster, so everyone needs to hang on tighter-just to keep from being thrown to the wolves.
