I have been told that Dreamweaver is the best for webdesigning and editing. I would like to know what is the best free software for editing websites? Which is user friendly, I never used frontpage or composer but I may if a few of you think it's ok. What about first page? I did try to use it a year ago and it was not user friendly. I'm no designer or programmer!! Html changes are what i'm mostly interested in, but one that can do all would be nice.

a free web page building tool that is useable on Windows would be Nvu it is similar to Dreamweaver to a point, just doesn't have all the bells and whistles like that. It's my primary web design tool. works on multile operating systems like linux, windows, mac osx, etc...

another program I use, only on Windows, is HTML-Kit
This is not a wyswyg editor, but it is a powerful tool if you get some of the plugins for it.

EDIT:fogot to mention, both programs are free!!

You can get Composer here: http://www.mozilla.o...cts/mozilla1.x/

It comes with Mozilla suite, which is free.

Personally, learn the language inside and out (CSS2/XHTML) and write it in a simple text editor like Notepad, or more preferably, ConTEXT - http://context.cx

If notepad, then metapad :tazz:. 'Tough guys', who will go straight for the hard coding, will use metapad (an upgraded version of notepad). Have a look at this site
