    I am creating the website for our soccer club. We purchased the location from networksolutions (hemetjuventusfc.com and .org).
    I used templates from NS and want to go beyond what is available with their tool set. What is the S/W recommended to build the site off line and update it? Does anyone use cupofcoffee?

    Find you a good text editor, like Notepad++ and cozy up to some http://www.w3schools.com
    Regarding cupofcoffee, which Google gave me a lot of hell searching for, because it wanted to separate the words, I haven't used it, because I don't use templates. As far as templates go, though it doesn't seem that bad.

    Tough to build offline unless you have your own server.
    You'll need to utilize PHP and MySQL for a database.

    There are tons of free HTML templates available...

    As for coffeecup, if I remember right it's not really a bad tool.

    Yes you can develop offline, but to really test it, you'll to setup a web server, most windows pcs can run a web server, but you'll need your install disk to set it up from.

    If you are not planning on ( I didn't see any questions regarding this ) using a CMS ( content management system ), you won't need a DB.

    Yes, you can create and manages site with strictly HTML and starting out it's a completely viable option. You'll need an FTP client ( I see FILEZILLA recommended a lot here ), to push your cometed file to your hosting server.

    Thank you all great input - working it from the template perspective instead of trying the offline option. I don't have a server setup yet but thinking that is a option for some of my extra pcs.

    You don't need an install disk to set up WAMP on a windows pc.

    I believe he was referring to IIS.

    http://www.sublimetext.com/2

    Here is a really good editor that goes well beyond the features of Notepad++, and it a very nice editor with a lot of different tools that you can use with it. It is not free, but the trial is unlimited and every 100 or so times u save it asks you to buy it after it saves (not before it saves and makes you click cancel to save it like most applications.) It is well worth to even buy it. And if you can have 1 license for as many computers as you want. Best of luck to you, check out Nettuts+ for CSS/jQuery/HTML tutorials.

    I do not work for either sublime text 2 or Nettuts+ just have used the for a while not, after buying Coda (a very good editor for $99 a few days later found Sublime and I won't go back, the only thing it doesn't do is automatic compleition and automatic closing of divs.) Code compleition is a really nice things, also learn the correct way to do things, so you don't develop bad habits (like jerry rigging CSS to make things work) and remember that you work with different browsers and heights and widths of monitors.)

    I'll take a look at it myself. I use both notepad and notepad++ ... for different reasons.
    Sometimes, the good old MS Notepad is the fastest, easiest to use, for quick edits. For
    PHP troubleshooting, Notepad++ is the one I use. Now, Sublime will add another layer to
    the arsenal of tools.

    Sublime Text 2 does a lot of different language highlighting, also does building of languages that require a compiler, so its a very nice tool. And I loved Coda (Spending 99$ on it.) But this replaced it as soon as i started it up, the only problem is snippit management, but I would rather use a 3rd party for snippit management.
