    ANyone know of a really good simple HTML editor? I am looking for something similar to frontpage, but for Mac of course.

    I will use it for making ebay/craigslist listings and other misc. stuff.


    Thanks!

    Search is your friend. ;)

    Try Nvu, which used to be part of the Mozilla browser suite. RapidWeaver is a great application but costs money.

    Well I tried Nvu and that is the most unstable program I have EVER run on a Macintosh system...

    Seems like lots and lots of people have the same problems with Nvu after a google search...

    I couldn't even get the damn thing to load... Had to restart and zap all the files.

    The only other free application I know is Amaya and that's as much an editor as it is a validation tool. It's not pretty but it'll help you create clean, compliant code.

    You could try vim ;)

    I just looked at Amaya and it looks good!

    In my honest opinion, Coda is quite possibly the best HTML/CSS creation tool I've ever seen on any platform. It's an amazing (albeit not free) piece of software.

    Add mine as a second vote for coda. It really is something quite special.

    If you want REALLY simple, you can also just use TextEdit.

    If you're just looking for a basic HTML editor, try Taco HTML. It's free and highly rated.

    Well Coda is OUT... It does not have a WYSIWYG editor...

    Looks like Dreamweaver it is for me.

    If you need wysiwyg then you're not using an html editor!

    Isn't Dreamweaver an HTML editor? It just also has WYSIWYG functions.

    Hey, use what makes you happy. I'm just being snarky. :)

    Dreamweaver isn't WYSIWYG, although it does allow you to edit some sections of a page in preview mode. Using DW for WYSIWYG is like the definition of overkill, heh.
