Well I prefer Notepad, as you can make and edit whatever you want in it. I never had programs like Dreamweaver and stuff like that, Text fascinates me! I even love DOS (when I'm in the mood) because it's just using plain text! And yes it's a little hard, depends what you are going to do, and your HTML level!

If you know how to program, then packages like Dreamweaver tend to frustrate you and you just want to type your code in a text editor like notepad.
But the problem with notepad is that it doesn't highlight your syntax for you. There are loads of freeware alternatives to notepad that will highlight syntax, I use PSPad.

If I am not in a hurry, and just want a down and dirty quick way to write HTML, then I use Notepad. If I want to cheat I use Dream Weaver.

I use CrimsonEditor: it's basicly notepad + context highlighting. I can't afford Dream Weaver, and find that a text editor does the job.

I feel the same way. I tried to use Dreamweaver once to do a layout but got so frustrated I abandoned the entire project.

I use notepad2 which is notepad with context highlighting.

Most of my work is coding so I hardly ever get the chance to use a wysiswyg although I don't mind using them.

Eclipse is a popular Java IDE that has plug-ins for practically everything.
It supports many languages such as HTML, XML, CSS, Coldfusion, PHP, Flex, and Java(of course). The list goes on.... Even procedural languages like C and C++
It has pretty much everything the others have and more

Plus ITS FREE

Yeah I always use dreamweaver because after running the program it shows you in which line you have an error. So, this feature help you to detect errors soon.
