I just downloaded the Winzip 21 day trial, but, like, how do you use it? I'm trying to make some layouts and wallpaper.

You're making wallpapers with WinZip?! O_o Uh...you do know it's a music program, right? Anyway, what are you specifically trying to do that you haven't been able to?

Uh... it is?! Well, nevermind that, does anyone know where I can dowload a html editor like what's it called... Dream or something. My Computer comes w/ Trellix web, but it's really annoying.

If you want something good and free, you should try HTML Kit: http://download.com.com/3000-2048-4687625.html?tag=lst-4-24 (just a 3.12 MB download too).

May I suggest getting Microsoft FrontPage. It's basic, but it does teach you.

I use it on my website, take a look: Planet Houndour (http://www.geocities.com/planet_houndour)

I also need some help with WinZip. When I try to download a Font to my computer, it doesn't let me. When I try to open the .zip file I downloaded, Windows Media Player pops up along with a message that says: "Cannot Identify filename extension...etc."

What should I do?

Front Page is hell.
I don't recommend using it, while it IS a WYSIWYG editor, because of that it throws a bunch of crap in your files that is unneeded, and in complicated files can really slow down the load time. *Pats 56kb users*

The answer? Notepad.exe.
Although, lately I've been using Winsyntax, it's a great program, like Notepad but can open more than one file in a single window and supports syntax highlighting. http://www.winsyntax.com/

Oops! :doh: I have them both, so...yeah.


Anyway, I use FrontPage Express; I think it's pretty good, Although, Notepad works just as well, though it takes a bit longer to test your code.

I like dream weaver, it makes div layers and CSS simple, my site was made in dream weaver: http://www.geocities.com/drgn7772000, and so were all the free layouts.
