    Notepad is very good but it doesn't support multiline search-replace and supports go-back just one step.

    Dreamweaver is better..

    I prefer dreamweaver for the following 3 reasons:
    1. easy tables
    2. great CSS support
    3. FTP integration

    I use pspad editor (free). I use it because I have some experience and I only need help finding closing tags, matching brakets etc. in my php codes. It supports colors for variables, tags etc, search and replace options, you can even set how many "go back" steps to remember. I started with Dreamweaver, I recomand it for beginers, it comes with plenty of usefull options. If you only need to use an editor to write HTML find a free one and search the web to find articles about html components, how to link to css files, js files, how to write meta tags and so on...
    Good luck!

    There is nothing better than old school notepad ;) If your a newbie and you want to start learning coding / designing web pages than it's better you get Macromedia Dreamweaver.

    My husband used to use Vi, but he switched to Kate (free as in speech and beer). Automatic file saving, coloured for many languages (he writes in Perl), sits on the desktop instead of in the terminal. Pretty similar to Vi with reg expressions and search functions.

    I use Ubuntu Linux, and the default text editor (which I believe is called "Text Editor") is the best because it highlights tags and URLs, making them easier to find in a sea of text. Everyone should be using Linux OSes anyway...

    I believe you mean gEdit - which you'd know if you start it from the command line.

    In a way, gEdit is the first GRAPHICAL text editor for linux that doesn't totally suck ass making notepad look feature rich. vi and emacs are very powerful, but are for all intensive purposes user hostile.

    I like gEdit - again I just wish it let you detach tabs, though thankfully you can set it to start individual sessions instead of opening new files as tabs.

    I use edit+ but my friend use frontpage and he is really fast with building sites (without cms) but fp creates really badass tabled html code.
    btw - I'm looking for something easy like fp which can give me nice xhtml with strict doctype. What kind of code generates dreamweaver? is it xhtml with css?

    if you are using the visual editor (the designer mode), it's useless. any program is unable to render valid html/xhtml/css code. there will always be some errors, some extra-code, and that's mainly because the editor works based on patterns inserted there by users. It does not "think" the layout.

    Anyone who uses graphic editor for creating html pages should quit it's job. I use DW for it's indentation stuff, auto-completion and stuff like this that make my life easier. I also use Zend Developer Studio, which has fewer options regarding html, but a lot of options regarding php. It also has no options regarding CSS.
