Robots.txt using Corel Draw?

 Hello. I have been (still) trying to create and publish a Webpage using Corel Draw, even not being an expert at it (I have used Corel Draw for creating printable jobs for some time, but not Web pages). Everybody told me to use Dreamweaver or Frontpage instead of Corel Draw, which I know that are specific for Web, but I did not wanted to learn a new software from zero to make my website, specially after finding out that it is possible to do it with Corel Draw. However, I need your help with some issues, like the robots.txt.

I have read about the robots.txt page that "every webpage should have"... I have even learned how to create this page, using Notepad and writing User-agent: * and Disallow: /webpage.htm (I hope it is only to write these commands one after the other in different lines...), but how do I include these robots.txt file in my website and how do I submitt it together with the website to ie Google?

My knowledge about "Webpage creation in Corel Draw" is restricted to creating the pages, using the "Publishing to Web" functionality and then uploading the htmlpages and images directories via FTP to the server, so I don`t know how to include the robots.txt in my website work and how to send it to the server.

Thanks in advance!

    Stop. Draw is NOT a web editor. You should learn HTML and CSS first, then
    use either a pure text editor like Notepad, or a true web editor.

    Honestly, you should have listed to those people... but Frontpage is dead,
    it is no longer made or supported by Microsoft. Dreamweaver is good, but not
    required - however there are many other editors out there (but, personally,
    I do use Dreamweaver)... and no, in my opinion it is NOT possible to create
    a useable site with Draw... nor with any other graphics application. You
    will see people saying the exact same thing on Illustrator, Fireworks,
    Photoshop, Dreamweaver, etc newsgroups/forums. Use a graphics app to create
    your images. Use a web editor to create your code.

    Have you bothered to use Google and search for information on a robots.txt
    file? Lots of info out there on how to make them and use them.

    Then you need to learn how to actually make web pages, Daniel. You will keep
    running into these frustrating things until you learn HTML and CSS.

    It's a bit buggy but it's not too bad.

    Like Hunter says you need to learn XHTML & CSS. There isn't really any other way.

    But if I was doing a website and didn't know much I'd use Wordpress. You need access to PHP and mySQL so without that don't even look.

    Or use Dreamhost and for $100 a year you get everything including auto installs for Wordpress.

    Wordpress is a CMS you just load it on the web server and work from the server.

    Nothing beats learning XHTML & CSS.
