I thought I'd bring some heads to bear on this topic.  I'll start with
answering your last question.  Learning html is essential for good
html writing.  If you look at many pages out there, you'll not see a
lot of nesting.  Much of what is neded as code is provided as
containers which you can have on hand and just fill in.  I use wordpad
myself.  There is not a tool that is streightforward as we might like
one to be.
