    Notepad... (or EditPlus)...

    Seriously.... Get (or borrow from the library) some good books on HTML, Javascript, PHP & MySQL and simply just start coding...

    Follow examples and tutorials on sites like webmonkey.com and other places.... That's really the only way you can learn how to code for sites.....

    Using other editors like Dreamweaver, Frontpage, HomeBuilder, etc. are simply like wheelchairs... They'll get you to where you're going but, you'll never be able to get there w/out their help. They are also limited on where they can get to. If you want to be boundless, or create that new killer site design, you'll never be able to do that w/ tools like that b/c they limit you in your creativness....

    It's not something you can learn in a day... It's learning a new language. You won't be able to speak fluent french in a day. You have to learn the basics and build on that. You also have to study and learn. Not the simple answer you were expecting but, it's right.

    I think you can get Macromedia Dreamweaver and Macromedia Fireworks together in a bundle for a pretty good price.

    Dreamweaver is one of the best WYSIWYG editors around, and I would suggest Adobe Photoshop for image editing.

    For some reason I've never been able to get into Dreamweaver. Personaly, if I need to do tricky layout and coding, I usually just do it by hand in Pico or something. If I want to make a quick and flexible site, though, I've found a program called NetObjects Fusion is the only way to go. They just released a new version which has many cool enhancements. Worth a look at least - and I think they have a trial you can use. Its a bit tricky, but there are some really cool ways you can integrate code w/ Fusion as well.

    I mostly use PSP for my web layouts (Photoshop when I'm working with just a photo). I find the mix of easy vector tools and photo retouching to work well for me in designing layouts. I find I can also complete most tasks twice as fast with PSP vs. PS and get the exact same results.

    HomeSite 5 is my editor of choice. It's basically a text editor but it colour-codes the code so that you can tell what's what.

    As far as graphics go, I'll generally go with what I know (PhotoShop).

    I'd say Dreamweaver MX and Adobe Photoshop 7. That's what I use, and I'm in love with those programs.

    Personally, I use Dreamweaver, but i know people that swear by First Page... does all the color coding things and is very similiar to Homesite

    or even cute html....which also does the color coding thingy
    [url]I got nothing/url]

    For clarity's sake, don't use "<ip address of hostname>" use the ACTUAL 32-bit numeric IP address of the machine.

    Nothing comes close to Dreamweaver MX/Photoshop 7 combo.

    For value for money I feel you cannot go past the fine products of Serif coupled with a fair to good knowledge of the codes.

    I love Homesite - I use it all the time and have been since version 2 (I now have the boxed version of Homesite 4.5).

    I normally do the layout, etc. in Dreamweaver and then all the coding in Homesite (PHP, HTML, etc).
