[help] need html editor that can...

hi.

i need a simple, hopefully free html editor that besides the standard
features has the following properties:

allows frames.

and

will allow me to create a "directory" based on data from an excel
spreadsheet. i do NOT need the webpages generated on the fly. basically i
have a spreadsheet with each persons name, address, etc... i want to
generate a seperate web page for each person based on a template, and have
the program autofill in the specifics for each person with the data in the
spreadsheet without having to manually cut and paste. i would also like it
to create a main directory page and create the links to each individuals
page. if possible i would also like it to handle something like an a-m
directory index, and a n-z index page, or whatever sort of breakdown is
necessary. this excel spreadsheet is updated monthly and i am thinking i
can just "regenerate" the web page manually as required. the kicker is i
dont know which program can do it. i expect frontpage could handle this,
but i really dont want to shell out 180 bucks...

anyone know of such a beast?

thx

Why. Anyway, unfortunately I don't know any editor that would not allow
frames.

I don't think such exists. If you can program, learn¹ perl and make
suitable script. It propably takes less time than configuring some
premade thing to suit your purpose (including time for learning perl)
Still good option even if you don't have any programming experience, but
takes somewhat longer. (hint, store in some plaintext format from exel)
i expect frontpage could handle this,
but i really dont want to shell out 180 bucks...


FP is great way to spend money to get nothing. Better pay 20 bucks for
some gradeschool nerd that will do it in afternoon.

[1] You obviously don't know perl yet, otherwise your script would be
working already ;-)

working already? why, does this perl woman work quickly for cheap? <g>

well i admit i dont know much about much about webpage programming. dont
want to in fact. but i know that someone somewhere has needed to do exactly
what i am trying to do and i dont want to re-invent the wheel or actually
"learn" a programming language. maybe its time to start stealing code from
someone elses website...
