The following are some categories of software used to edit static websites:
- Text editors like Notepad or TextEdit, where content and HTML markup are manipulated directly within the editor program.
- Offline editors such as Microsoft FrontPage and Adobe Dreamweaver (previously Macromedia Dreamweaver), with which the site is edited using a GUI and the final HTML markup is generated automatically by the editor software.
- Online editors like web pages, widgets, intro, blogs, and other documents which create media-rich online presentations.
Static web pages are made of “fixed code” and unless the site developer or web design and development company makes changes, nothing will change on the page. So, if you need to make a site that needs to just get information out there and not be updated regularly, creating a static site would be much simpler and probably effective for you.
