    Hand-coding all the way. I actually get lost in WYSIWYG because I learned by coding

    It is possible to hand-code in a tool like Dreamweaver ... and it actually speeds up the process.

    Funny. When dreamweaver came out 3.0 v. I used it cause i didnt know how to hand type HTML. Now i still use it to make work faster. sure, i CAN hand code if i wanted to. but sure you COULD WALK to work everyday instead of driving, but majority chooses? yeah, anything but handcoding. dreamweaver has now become adobe and is a sucker sale. industry standard, must have. even if you dont use it.

    You can keep both programs, I use notepad++ only. basic code highlighting is all I really need.

    I tried and didn't like it, none of it.

    sorry, but just cause i can hand code in notepad, doesn't mean i still can't take advantage of the shortcuts and terrific features of Dreamweaver.

    I use Dreamweaver. Others use GoLive. They are probably the two best programs on the market.

    Though in my opinion not as powerful as UltraEdit it is much better for beginners.

    Hi guys,

    I'm from stiqr and we just launched our beta SAAS WYSIWYG site editor. It's truly one of a kind. Here's a video of our site being created using our technology. Please try it out, I'd love to hear feedbacks!

    As most people I have a collection of tools. I'll list them in order of use.

    1.Dreamweaver CS4

    2.Textpad and Notepad++ and HomeSite5 (depends on my mood and what I'm doing)

    2.A few coffee cup programs like the flash form builder, it's just quick, clean, and easy.

    I did use NVU for good while when I only used linux but now I like dreamweaver better.

    As for ftp'ing I'm not fond of built in clients so I use filezilla and fireftp add-on for firefox.

    As for frontpage I don't know where to start. My first freelance job was to update someones site that was built with frontpage. OMG the directory was so packed with garbage. So I talked the client into paying me to rebuild the whole site and get rid of all the unnecessary junk. The site was 100% better in every way after that.

    Here's another funny one. My wife is currently in school finishing up her masters and is taking a technology class. Her teacher who possesses a doctorate in technology sent my wife home saying that publisher is the best web design software ever made and that she's a master designer. I told her to tell her teacher to send me a link of a site she made with publisher. She did and I pretty much replied back with a question. You have a doctorate degree in technology?

    Adobe Dreamweaver is it not?

    Still, Dreamweaver is the best, CS4 is just lovely. It's like geek porn. Really, Dreamweaver CS4 is like sex, except I'm having it.

    Just tried first page 2006 free version and I got to say it's kind of neat. Thanks

    Actually after using it for about an hour, I think I'm adding this to my tool box. I'm not the super coder guy so it's kind of nice.

    I like DreamWeaver, but will also use Notepad++ when I want something a bit more bare bones. Basically it's Notepad but specifically for coding.

    I really dislike pure (or too close to being pure) WYSIWYG editors, there's only so much you can do without getting into the guts of web-design.
    I use code view and design view in tandem in DreamWeaver a lot.
    Good WYSIWYG editors can be a great tool to aid in web design, but I don't think they are very good when used just all on their own. That DreamWeaver allows for both WYSIWYG and coding is what I like about it.
