Many webmasters are now trying to have their sites validated and in a process using vast range of HTML editors to make life easier.

Which HTML editor do you use and recommend?

No one uses a HTML editor?

I googled for a few but got confused as to which one would be worth using. Unfortunately, i don't have that much time testing each of them, so i was looking forward to select few may be if there isn't one best out there.

If you want wysiwyg functionality then Dreamweaver is probably the best out there.

I use Notepad++. It's like plain ol' Notepad except it makes your code or markup a bit easier to understand.

I get by using kompozer and metapad. I'm not a web designer and don't care much for the code validation stuff as long as the browsers manage to render the page the way I expect it to.

NVU is better than most of the popular editors and its free. It also has windows and linux versions available.

I have used notepad and NVu now. NVu seems fairly good for people like me. It doesn't validate pages fully, or atleast not in my case, but overall it has good features. I haven't had chance using Dreamweaver as it is a paid software and i am looking for free one for now.

I thought I should mention that kompozer is actually NVU, but with fewer bugs.

bandboy - dreamweaver is still good editor.
just setup dreamweaver for a certain browser, so it makes easy for you to debug the script.
you may also logon to http://browsershots.org to check the compatibility of your site to different browsers.

Unfortunately, dreamweaver is little expensive. I can purchase it but then atleast i need to see how it works before spending money on it. Let me see, if they offer a trial version or not.

I am now using trial version of Dreamweaver and it looks great. If anyone is looking for good editors, try Dreamweaver. I may go in for purchasing one if i can't find a free one that gives me what Dreamweaver gives - comfortable editing

Well we are using FP but recently we discovered that FP sites does not look pretty on Firefox, sometimes it could be the technique your using. And we also tried using Coffee cup HTML editor and it was ok, but felt a bit odd after using FP for many years.

Crimson Editor is a very nice Notepad type editor but much easier to read than notepad since it color codes tags.
Frontpage is a easier to use editor and it can do everything all the others on the market does if you know how to use it.
Dreamweaver is good too if can learn all the features and how to use them, which if I had to choose from handcoding or Dreamweaver is easier just to handcode it in my opinion
