    Learn how to code and use a simple text editor. Or try any of these.

    Use iWeb that came with OS X or learn to code from w3schools

    We have a Web Design and Development forum here that has some great Stickies that list most web related apps on the Mac. I suggest going through them. I personally use BBEdit. "Best" is always subjective and depends on your knowledge of web design.

    Adobe Dreamweaver, along with Photoshop/Fireworks for creating graphics.

    OK...

    Flux • It has a really beautiful and clean interface, and it makes it easy.. with a combination of CSS and HTML (Both you can write and modify within the app..) you can create a great Website with this application!! It's a drag and drop interface... and mixes Code with Design.. but in a great package..

    Coda (W/ Changes.app support installed) • Well... it's Coda isn't it!! Ok.. that's a bit bland.. I only use it for the Editing and Designing features.. and I now use Espresso a lot more... but I have had it since before Espresso and Flux, so well.. You get the idea.. I'm used to it!!

    Expresso (Again, W/ Changes.app support installed) • It's like Coda, just a bit more unfinished.. I got it in the Mac Heist bundle... and it's turning into a great app.. it's only early version 1... but it could be great (Judging by CSSEdit and Mac-Rabbits coders!!)

    RapidWeaver • Is for when I am really tired, and just need to knock something up quickly for someone... There really isn't any code involved (Well... you can do a HTML Page) but in the end.. it does it all for you quite well..

    TextMate (And again, W/ Changes support installed!) • This is my Hard-Core text editor.. I use this all of the time, and it has a permanent place in my Web Design dock... It's very customizable... and for that reason i'm not changing it in the distant future (The other reason, was that it was E-X-P-E-N-S-I-V-E!!)

    I also sometimes use the Text Editor that is built into Flow, for quick and easy editing when I am in a rush...

    I have mentioned Changes, it allows you to review, compare and change code inside of your favourite editors..

    I have linked to them all...

    After using DreamWeaver for all my sites, I recently started using SquareSpace. What a difference - I end up with professional looking sites in about 1/2 the time as before. www.squarespace.com

    I use RapidWeaver It offers a good blend of ease of use and flexibility. While iWeb is very easy, its also very rigid/restricted in what you can do.

    With a large volume of available themes, plug-ins and page types, RapidWeaver is a great app. Its not as hard as some of the enterprise type apps, like dreamweaver but it offers great power with ease and simplicity.

    Personally, coding by hand in this day can be a bit slow and difficult though it offer the best way to learn. I also use a product called Coda. It offers more abilities to code pages then a text editor offers.

    I agree Squarespace is great. No need to learn HTML or CSS or whatever.
