I am basically a C++ developer.

I am trying to create a tool for which I require to create a HTML page having a drop down menus, tabs page and a place where content can be displayed based upon menu option selected. Kindly note that I am novice to UI side but know a little bit of JS / Jquery. I saw a lot of HTML templates with CSS on net but all of them needed to be customized which is difficult for me as I do not know CSS / HTML tags.

Can you please let me know is there any tools or easiest method just like Powerpoint which I can make use to place my contents and it would generate the HTML / CSS / Dropdowns page for me?

Yes, that would help. So what would the HTML code be like?

Is it possible that main menu option will have sub-menu option? Please let me know if there is a tool or a way that I can read existing pages specific section / content details to understand / analyze. So again what would be the HTML code?

Thanks a lot.

But a question more - like if I have an editor where I just have to add and configure elements - finally see it on a browsers, it would be very handy. This would give me the liberty completely my style without knowing HTML, CSS or a little bit of JS.

Elements like - Menus, Page Tabs, Sidebars, Dropdowns etc

Please let me know if such a HTML IDE exists.

Thanks in advance

Sure, such editors are called WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editors. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML_editor for a description. At the end of the article, there are links to a list of editors and a comparison of editors.

The problem with such editors is that they are rigid in their coding. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML_editor#D...hieving_WYSIWYG .
