Well, if you want to use OOo to create website, put something otgether in OOwriter and and save it as .html format. OOo produces okay code.

Another option perhaps is to use another Open Source piece of software called NVU (New View) from the Mozilla family (http://www.nvu.com) which replaces MS FrontPage and Macromedia's DreamWeaver for publishing webpages..

The code, that OOo produces, is far from OK. Although it's not such shit as in the case of Ms Word, still, OOo is not a good tool for web design.

FrontPage and DreamWeaver are from different planets, and I can hardly imagine a program that would replace both.

Back to the topic, for a novice I'd recommend Arachnophilia (http://www.arachnoid.com/). It's free and Java (i.e., cross-platform). Unfortunately, I dont' know any other entry-level program for Linux. And for Arachnophilia, you still have to learn at least the basics of HTML first.

I'd also recommend to use a dedicated web editor. NVU is a good choice, since it allows you to edit pages in the WYSIWYG mode. I don't know whether it can replace FrontPage and Dreamweaver, but it's definitely worth a try.

Kind regards,
Dmitri
