Dreamweaver is pretty good too, if a little expensive...

Dreamweaver is ok but its not wortht he money. It dosn't do anything you can't do with a decent text editor. Also CSS is now the standard which Dreamweaver isn't that hot at. CSS is best coded by hand anyway,.

To make a website you need to know what you're doing, you can use Publisher or Word but it will look cheap and tacky and it will use up too much bandwidth etc.

True, though I was assuming that the original poster didn't know much HTML or anything so would just be wanting a nice WYSIWYG kinda thing. *Don't* use Word - the HTML will look horrible should you ever decide to alter it manually in the future! And if you do know HTML already, then I'd go with a nice text editor if I were you cos you'll have better control over it. But I would stick to my original suggestion that Dreamweaver is probably the best one if you don't want to write your own HTML.

I admit it is ok as a WYSIGYG editor, far better than any of the Microsoft nasties. I personaly find it annoying to use though but then I do more advanced stuff than a newbie would do.

What you're asking for is a visual WYSIWYG design environment type program? Dreamweaver is your best bet for that. And it's flexible enough for you to write your own code as well.

Frontpage is the easiest to use. Just drag and drop.

Frontpage imo . If you dont mind going into a tiny bit of HTML and scripting to correct a few errors and glitches

dreamweaver is my personal favourite coupled with fireworks.

For a text editor I use an app called perledit (designed for coding perl in but its much nicer to use than notepad).

Tiny bit of html /afew errors? Try an ennormeous ammont of unneeded code and many errors. Not to mention it makes the file size huge and takes forever to load on 56k in most cases. Frontpage sucks!
For wysiwyg I'd go with dreamweaver.

Personally I use netscape composer - but only because it's the only option available at work and I'm only making incredibly basic sites/pages which consist of lists of links and not a lot else....

Macromedia Dreamweaver MX
Tsk, downloaded software. I found that DreamWeaver made messy code when I last used it. I'd stick with notepad and a good html book.

Writing it raw is the best way, and the only way to get full 100% customisation.

used frontpage and dreamweaver.

prefer frontpage myself. people complain it adds too much useless code but in my experience dreamweaver is just as bad.

frontpage and notepad are the best combo. let frontpage do the hard work then clear out the little bits of useless stuff it adds in...

eg :

<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 5.0">
<meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Docume nt">

The only thing I don't like raw code is for layout. It's a bit easier with CSS, but drawing tables in your head and turning them into code isn't fun. Scrap paper helps though

Notepad is not practical really though as you can't see which files have been saved etc. I use TSW Web Coder its free, it has CSS support and its basicaly a text editor with basic syntax highlighting for CSS.

When you're working on the HTML you can directly call the CSS file to make edits really easy. Also if you forget the name of a CSS class you can have it listed on the HTML editor page rather than having to refer to the CSS file.

The code youtype in is still however 100% your own although its table generator is nice
