Just for conversation sakes, what is everyone's favorite text editor or WYSIWYG program for web development? There are more offerings out there than you can shake a stick at, so I'm just curious what everyone prefers.

I currently use Photoshop for visual design, Notepad++ and Dreamweaver for the coding and building.

Because I do the hardware/OS side of things as well, I'm often too busy to write PHP/JS codes, so I'm a huge fan of free scripts as well :thumbup2:

I have Photoshop and GIMP. GIMP is nice, but for web design I've found Photoshop to be better because of the toolsets and integration with other Adobe software.

I recently came across software that supposedly takes a visual design from Photoshop and somehow hacks it up into a complete HTML site. Somehow, I'm finding myself a tad doubtful about the capabilities of such a program.

well my web design is based on the type of project, client, and intended back end development. If I am doing a simple 5 page site Ill Photoshop for approval and code in notepad++ (I hate Dreamweaver with a passion and think its overrated). If I am building a master template for a client for asp.net I will use Visual Studio 2012 and if it JavaScript heavy Ill use Web Developer

You can do that im Photoshop by going to "save for web" but the code doesn't look good -at all.
If your making WP themes you can use Divine Elemente, a plugin for Photoshop I've tried it for a few weeks its not as easy as they describe in their videos. Elemente's base layouts didnt match my design. So I just went back to good ol' Notepad++
