|You're right. Web crawlers don't understand Flash, so if your whole site is in Flash, they won't index a thing. Dreamweaver is a WYSIWYG editor, which means you drag-and-drop elements onto the page and adjust their settings using menus and whatnot. I don't know how good Dreamweaver is now, but in the past it was very limiting to how the web page could be adjusted and it poorly conformed to web standards.|
I suggest you write the HTML & CSS yourself. It allows you maximum customization and you learn more about web development that way. Developing a web page can be done in a simple text editor like Notepad. Do not use Microsoft Word. I like to use Notepad++. It's like Notepad on steroids with awesome features like syntax highlighting, line numbering, and spell check.
