What Website Editing Software do you use ?

I've been out of the website editing game for a few years. Getting back into it now

Is Macromedia Dreamweaver the mutts nutts as far as website editing software goes ?

Homesite and Notepad are my main tools. Sometimes I'll use pico if I'm on a linux box. Never did learn vi.

I also prefer Notepad or any text editor for that matter, but if I really need a WYSIWYG editor, I use Dreamweaver MX.

Agreed. Dreamweaver MX 2004 is also good.

I'd love to say "notepad," but I'm not a fool. I use UltraEdit.

Yeah, notepad is cool for quick fixes, but it's all about a program that does color-coded text.

VI, baby

But seriously, Dreamweaver MX 2004 isn't too bad.

Notepad? Come on... to edit an entire website? PLEASE!

Dreamweaver MX is what I've been using for a while now... before that was Homesite.

Notepad...

I started with pico nearly 10 years ago. Now it's usually either Notepad or Textpad. Real men use text editors only.

Since us real men run database-backed websites where most of the content goes into a handful of templates, coding a handful of templates in Notepad is no big deal.

I use notepad.exe, because the HTML editors are too complicated with all those damn buttons...

but for heavily repetetive typing or sequences... I will write a console application to dump all the values from a text file, database, etc.

though, for web applications that are powered by ASP.NET, I will us Visual Studio.net

For WYSIWYG definitely Dreamweaver. For quick fixes or when I am feeling masochistic, Notepad. Homesite is pretty decent though too. A nice middle ground between code only vs. WYSIWYG.

Frontpage 2004 and I am not a beginner. My sites have almost entirely static content and using FP saves me a boatload of time to do other things that are more important to me.

I was using Namo WebEditor and didn't care for it much at all.
