    em calculators can be helpful.

    for instance if you had a paragraph (1.4em) which included a link and you wanted the link to be 1.2em, you cant just place 1.2em because of inheritance.
    1.2em would actually be 1.68em, it actually needs to be 0.8571 em. As you get further down the line with ems it can get very tricky, and the values are not something you can just remember in your head. its not so simplistic as a "M"... I shouldnt have to tell YOU this chris.

    Frontpage is useful too(is similar to Dreamweaver only from Microsoft), or a good free tool is notepad++.

    Sublime Text 2 FTW!!!! Best editor I've used.
    It's free kind of (you'll just get a pop up every now and then asking if you want to purchase).
    It's fast!
    It's very customizable.
    Its plugins are awesome.

    The only tool you ever need is Notepad. ASCII graphics are better than those overrated "colour" images...

    Several sheets of paper and a box of coloured pencils, is what you should start with.


    Unless you have a graphics tablet and you know how to use it.
