GoLive enables you to create new web pages in a variety of ways, including the use of predesigned web page templates. We'll get to those features momentarily, but first let's have a look at how to do the most basic of thingscreate a plain old blank web page. When you first launch GoLive a Welcome screen appears offering options to create or open a new document, as shown in Figure 35.1. Deselect the check box to show the Welcome screen at startup if you don't want to encounter this screen every time you launch GoLive. You can always turn this feature back on in the GoLive Preferences window.

This latest version of GoLive introduces a new dialog that's actually called the New dialog. The New dialog is where you create new stuff like web pages, sites, and scripts, as shown in Figure 35.2. To display the New dialog box, choose New from the File menu. It may look confusing at first glance, but it's actually quite an organized way to present all the options for creating new files and sites.
