What do professional webdesigners user as html (etc) editors?


Most people discredit my work because it doesn't look as good as other peoples, and I just want to see what other people use as editors.

I'll say why exactly I wanted to know later...

Macromedia Dreamweaver is by far the best. Microsoft Front Page is a joke.

It's not the editor, that's just a tool. Real design sense comes from the operator of the software, not the program itself. Sure would be easy if the program did everything...

I use Dreamweaver, but the same site could be coded in Notepad or Homesite, or any one of a dozen others.

Ok, now I might as well say this:
"Once upon a time, I played a flash game. I didn't play nerly as good as everyone else. The one day, I relised that there was an extra key I could of used to help me, but I never did use it because I was to used to doing it the hard way."
What does that have to do with anything? Well, dreamweaver is a program, and it has a built in area where you can build your webpage while looking straight at it. But, I never did (liked) that, so instead (to this day) I use 1st Page 2000 (a free prorgam), that does not have that extra feature, and all it really does is it has some buttons at the top of the screen, basicly "hot buttons", but I never really use them either, thus the program is basicly notepad. But everyone uses dreamweaver. So I am at a disadvantage: and I can't create websites "as well" as I could be.

I guess I still make great sites, like mine at: http://techdominion.techboard.net/

So it proves my point, I am at quite a disadvantage, even thought I have a choice to use the program or not. I can say this thought, dreamweaver is better than claris works homepage.

Thanks for responding everyone!

Notepad can be used to create sites just as well as Dreamweaver...any editor which lets you edit the code itself can.

Dreamweaver's advantage though, is that when used properly, it can make development time faster and easier.

Notepad if by far the best. DW and Front Page write useless stuff all over the place that can end by causing trouble on your site.

Just my opinion.

Homesite is the best editor out there. Its like notepad, but much improved.

Editplus. Its a simple text editor like notepad, but it highlights syntax so i see all typos immediately. Dreamweaver is slow overbloated editor. Frontpage is just a junk that no sane designer would use.

Textpad (http://www.textpad.com/). Same reason as Editplus mentioned above. Syntax highlighting etc.

Not necessarily true, depends if you know how the software works (although for DW the early versions were bad at this).

I use Dreamweaver for much day to day editing of non-databased pages. I could do it in Notepad just as well, but often just either can't be bothered or it's faster to visually edit it than HTML code it.

I don't often have to clean up DW generated code these days.

it has nothing to do with the program you use.

just because you use photoshop and not mspaint (notepads equivelent) dosn't make you nay less of a graphic designer.

I use dreamweaver because it has my ftp, the code and the visuals all right there.

and the newer versions of DW don't seem to add all the extra code people all talk about.

Dreamweaver.

Not that I am a "pro" or anything, but that's what I use
