Default Site built with RapidWeaver

After two years of having a holding page for my picture framing business I decided it was time to do something about it.

So I booted up my very old copy of DreamWeaver and started to think about how many columns and rows I wanted in my first table.

Now I've read enough here to know that tables are dreadfully out of fashion -- but did I really want to dig out a book about CSS and start from scratch learning stuff that I knew something about a long time ago? Interesting as that might have been it would have been a sure recipe to not have a web site up and running this side of next Christmas.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, a quick search in Google unearthed RapidWeaver and I got to work. This is what I managed to produce with two days' work. Most of the photographs already existed but everything else was authoured during Monday and Tuesday.

Seems to me that it's a great credit to RapidWeaver that I could go from zero to a reasonable site in two days. There are some frustrating limitations in RapiWeaver but there are generally work-arounds. I guess that's a result of its simplicity -- if you want a click-and-go website builder then you have to resign yourself to its boundaries.

It's a Mac-only application.

Anyway, I'd be interested in any comments on the website.

PS. I've just added a favicon which, in Safari on the Mac, seemed to work first time. I think it needs a redesign to make it clearer but at least it seems to work.
