I am, BTW, looking an an editor that was on this list last week as looking
promising.  It is called Evrsoft 1st Page 2000 and can be found at:

http://www.evrsoft.com/1stpage/

I have downloaded it and took a quick peek, but like most editors I am going
to have to learn it.  I agree with with Tony.  If I already know handing and
how to design great sites that are accessible, why should I learn to use an
editor?

I respond:
I haven't read the rest of this thread, but I thought I'd toss in my two
cents.
I agree with everyone who says that there is no concrete answer, "this is
the best html editor, period." I personally have been using 1st Page for
some time now, and it's perfect for how I think, and I'd recommend that
anyone try it, if they have the time.
Of course, it isn't perfect; but it takes very little to overcome the
program's shortcomings.

Dreamweaver has always been a strong application, however, I personally
still do not trust any application so strongly designed to serve the
majority mainstream burgiose bla bla bla. Javascripts are nice, but I've
always avoided them (despite not knowing about security holes which cause
some people to disable js support completely). I try to mostly code to spec
in 1st Page whenever possible.

Okay, actually, that was me putting in my 12 cents. Thanks for putting up
with it! Have a good day.
