    Consider Taco HTML Edit

    If you want a solid editor with context-highlighting and do not require WYSIWYG, consider TacoHTML Edit (www.tacosw.com).
    I have used for over a year now and am actually quite pleased with it.
    Best of all; it's free !

    I personally useTextWrangler but I also know someone who swears by Tex-Edit. No the program name is not a typo, just a bad pun, but the program is really good.

    I just downloaded the latest version last night. I look forward to trying it out. The earlier versions didn't impress me much, but this version shows a lot of promise.

    If you want WYSIWYG, you might try iWeb.

    I use 'vi'.

    I suspect you wouldn't enjoy the experience though :)

    In the late 90' nearly 50 percent of web designers were BBEdit users. BBEdit of course is a mac application. Thanks John

    If you know HTML - I'd say: TextWrangler or Smultron
    If you want WYSIWYG - NVU is ok; TacoEdit is ok; uh... you could try an online editor. Not very many good ones out there, YET.

    I recommended it to someone else, but I have been using Aptana for a while. It is a great dreamweaver alternative. I just recommended it on another thread as well. It even has screen casts on how to use it and is updated frequently.

    I recently got acquainted with Sandvox by Karelia Software. It looks promising.

    The Pro version ($79), at least, has advanced features that iWeb is sorely lacking, like "the ability to manage raw HTML in several contexts: as pages and pagelets, custom HEAD elements, file preludes [for setting cookies, security sessions, PHP scripts], plus the ability to view and validate the HTML source for your elements.)"
