    Taking a wild guess iWeb might suit you depending on what you're planning on creating. I don't really use it though, so someone else might be able to help more

    Good god iweb? I'm a coder, the Microsoft is for professionals, this doesn't look like it. I'm looking for something the will show errors, has debugging capabilities and has support for server-side scripting.

    I know your all trying to help so keep em coming.

    I would say Nvu, M$'s web composers are extraordinarily NON-Standard, result in pages big and not cross-platform friendly

    First of all learn to spell god damn, and second of all it's excellent software so don't go bashing it it works fantastic and it works universally with anything.

    The software uses CSS, XHTML and way more and if that's not universal then what is.

    If you can't find a Mac alternative and have an Intel Mac, you could always use Parallels or Boot Camp and then just use Microsoft Visual Web Developer on your Mac that way.

    sorry, but no.. MS html and css implementation is not standards.. and it's usually mocked because of that.

    Mocked by who people who can't spell or are too lazy to write out Microsoft. It is universal code because I typed it and thats all I use.

    More software suggestions instead of this nonsense.

    What exactly did he spell incorrectly? I assume you were referring to the M$ abbreviation? Maybe you meant learn some grammar, oh wait, no you couldn't have, that would be hypocritical.

    Standards compliant software perhaps? Just because something uses CSS and XHTML does not mean that it uses them correctly.

    Then perhaps you should try asking again in a polite way instead of insulting people who are trying to help?

    You're so rude, I think you should appreciate the help you are getting here.

    This is a respectable and established forum so please don't waltz in with this attitude.

    Rich.

    You have been given help. Dreamweaver and Coda have both been suggested to you as decent alternatives.
