Web Design Greg Crotty Report 1 In the following report I will give details on a few applications that you would use when you are creating your website. I will explain what are the advantages and the disadvantages of each are and I will give comparisons. There will also be some useful user recommendations.

The main disadvantage of desktop publisher would be the setup expense from the computer down to the laser printer and software and the high end publisher software’s are not cheap. Also the users need a good knowledge of the software especially for job positions that use desktop publisher on a daily basis. Another program which would be similar to Microsoft word is the notepad application.
