If you want to build website without pain use frontpage, if you want headache try another.
by the time you learn how to use dreamweaver I have already gain a fortune with my frontpage website
why use notepad, this is like walking 1000 miles when you have a nice car and tons of gas
use frontpage, there are still lot of things to learn; SEO,copywriting, photoshop, animation,
CSS, themes, competition etc.
