Hi,

I have been learning HTML (using Notepad) for the last couple of months or so through Online tutorials, and thank God, I am not doing too bad! But I want to create good pages with nice design. I think I'll need to use some sort of program like Dreamweaver but I am not sure. I haven't used it nor can I afford it! I am looking for a free alternative. I have seen couple of free ones described as 'Dreamweaver alternatives'... NVU, Amaya, Mozilla Composer (not tried any yet) but I don't know which to go for.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

I personally use Dreamweaver and I do recommend that if you can afford it in the future, but as for free WYSIWYG HTML Editors I would recommend NVU (which I used before Dreamweaver) and CoffeeCup HTML Editor http://www.coffeecup.com/html-editor/. I believe that CoffeeCup is a trial version, but it is much cheaper than Dreamweaver ($49??). Also, Dreamweaver does have a fully functional, 30-day trial version if you want to use that for the time being. Both of these should satisfy your needs for an HTML Editor.

Thanks Ritt... for the quick reply.

If I get the cash, I'll go for Dreamweaver, but in the meantime I'll try the free ones. I checked the link and that CoffeeCup HTML Editor does not look bad (I've seen the Video demo on the site). Even though it is significantly cheaper, I just want to experiment with the free ones first...

Anyway, thanks again for the thoughts.

Microsoft Expression Web all the way! :thumbsup: I love it and use it every day and I find it extremely easy to use. It's the improved and updated version of FrontPage which was also good but would never go back to FP now I have EW.

I happened to come across this article talking about Aptana. Anyone heard of it?
