    in apache you just use a .htaccess file that has like this in it..

    ErrorDocument 404 http://www.blah.com/404error.html

    same thing for all your different errors that you want a custom page for, and just point it to that html file..

    in IIS there is a directory full of the error html files, i forget where it is tho..

    use notepad to edit your html files. Don't touch dreamweaver.

    :( i used to be a hardcore notepad html junkie.. then i found dreamweaver and i love it.. mind you, i use 'code view' not the actual design view.. although, i still find myself in DOS Edit occasionally fixing up something here or there on the fly.. :)

    All dreamweaver in code edit...
    the proper quote is: never let any program do everything for you, always manage code and know what is going on behind the scenes. Dreamweaver is a tool, not the tool, but it is the best one I've ever used, and it cuts my workload in half. (gives me time to browse the bit forums during work!) Just make your first page in notepad if you get the chance, and use dreamweaver to update and create things based on the original. (I reccomend Dreamweaver MX which I've never had add more than one font tag to a single group of text, contrary to popular belief, and if so, just run the cleanup command)

    oh and error pages... sorry for the off-topic rant, tell me this is wrong and I'll delete it...

    I allways use dreamweaver too. Only things I don't like about it is that you can't use the ] button, and it automatically saves the files to .htm files, not to .html files, which results in a complete mess at the link-stuff :sigh:

    dreamweaver likes to complete tags, ie if i type <center> it automatically puts </center> after, which is very annoying at times :(

    I don't like programs that generate code for me. The code always ends up being ugly and you want to smack yourself for using it later.

    I make websites at a company, and I want to kill the people who used to make sites in Frontpage! The code is ugly, it is compatable with only IE (for the most part) and it isn't even CLOSE to being XHTML.

    The new standard for HTML. It is tougher on syntax. It's a step towards making HTML a lot nicer to work with :)
