Not worth reading

I've been using Visual Page v.2 for 2 years now. I have created several websites with it and I maintain them with it to this day. I have *no* complaints about the product and recommend it always.

"Your pages will be viewable by all common browsers, and will give you no errors due to their outdated nature." ---This is *far* from a negative, as the review suggests. It's actually a great advantage for the webmaster. Your e-mail will not be full of 'flames' and complaints.

"However, once you compare the site you have with the site your competitors have you will be very disappointed. Visual Page simply cannot produce inspiring pages..." ---'Visual Page' does not 'produce' any pages, inspiring or not. *It is just software*. The ability -or inability, as the case may be- to reach the web surfer and 'inspire them' lies *entirely* in the hands of the web-master/mistress.

"If you want to make a good web site you should ... hire a professional designer." ---This, hiring a professional, is *not* a realistic alternative for the "HTML hobbist", which I believe is Visual Page's target market, and whom is best served by the product.

Contrary to popular belief the web is NOT mostly 'inhabited' by ultra savvy tech-heads with super computers at their fingertips. Equiptment and browsers are on the whole of average capabilities. An overloaded site will wreck havoc and serves only to alienate first time visitors, not to mention destroy chances of any repeat visits.

**The heart of a good website is CONTENT.** If you have the content, then with Visual Page you will be able to get it out there, on-line, quickly and efficiently.
