Personally, I do my web development work with the help of Aptana and Notepad++. I love the speed of Notepad++ and the feature set of Aptana. Both are great and feature full HTML editors which satisfy my needs.

Used Dreamweaver and fell in love with their templating system.

But eventually I need more control over my HTML (and PHP), and thus now I use Komodo IDE (pricey, but I like it!).

It was a good and easy time when MS Frontpage was available, as it was the most basic and easy-to-use software for HTML editing and HTML web pages creation. But since its development was discontinued, the best to use now is dreamweaver which satisfies with nearly the name purpose and also multiple page editing is possible.

FoxEditor is another nice software for those who feel that dreamweaver is not with an easy interface. Notepad++ is also useful but for mac, there haven't been any real good apps to help for HTML editing.

If you just need to create a few sites here and there, and don't feel you need to learn all the source than I'd say Dreamweaver is the best option.
My thoughts exactly.

If you want to be doing websites professionally, hand coding is your best option. However if you have no need for compliant websites, Dreamweaver is in my opinion the best WYSIWYG editor out there.

I like Dreamweaver personally. It is the BEST editor because I fell very comfortable in using the software. Dreamweaver has helped me make some personal projects. I've been using it for years now.

I use Trellian Webpage for WYSIWYG. Its easy to use, gets updated, has a good manual and is far better and less buggy than Kompozer. You can use Photoshop Plugins, although I haven't tried yet.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) FrontPage has been discontinued. And more and more providers are dropping FrontPage support.

Hi All..

I am using FrontPage and it works great for me but I understand it is being replaced by Microsoft's new program that comes with Vista. I want to help my family and friends create their websites so I was wondering which program you guys would recommend for a beginner. I don't want to recommend FrontPage since they are phasing that product out. I know a lot of people use Dreamweaver but it is very pricey.

a great free program is called crimson editor. its good for everything and great if you want to edit a pre done template etc...

I started out "just coding", and I found this editor early on and have never looked back.

You can also get ultra compare that let's you compare changes side by side, when you are changing or updating pages.

Many of you will discount the fact that using the right HTML Editor can have any effect on Google SEO results. Let me explain why we have found that the right HTML Editor can help you in achieving great SEO results. If your HTML code editor does color matching for tags, great, but will it warn you of potential pitfalls or provide automatic suggestion of the right attributes to use in each tag? Probably not. We have found a great HTML editor that has in every way exceeded our expectations and made our life much simpler. We no longer have to worry about W3C validation, as this HTML editor helps us achieve it every time.

Let us explain in detail why the right editor can help. We used to code our web sites in plain text editor, but that was tricky because it did not provide any color coding which certainly can make a programmer's life much easier. Now before the web editor we currently use, we had to study - memorize where and what attribute could be used for every single HTML element. This of course can be very time consuming and I had never seen an editor that offered correct suggestion every step of the way. We now heavily rely on our current HTML editor not only as a great tool for creating rich web applications but as check for correct syntax.
