Actually, I let the graphic artists use whatever they are comfortable with,
up the raw html and wedge in the interchange tags where needed. I consider
a programmer not a visual artist, so I don't use Frontpage for coding, and I
require them to use a text editor for layout and design. I say what fields
on a particular type of page, and they "paint me a picture" of a web page.
we end up with an end product that looks good and also works correctly.
