    I use homesite almost exclusively now. I will occasionally use notepad if I'm in a hurry or I'm updating a page from a PC other than my own.

    Dreamweaver just doesn't do it for me. I don't use any generated code and DW has too many features that I will just never use.

    Dreamweaver MX 2004, just saves so much time with the HTML and CSS code hint thingy plus it can provide colour coding for most languages - it even has limited code hint support for XML.

    If you want something like notepad, use winsyntax. It has colors a lot of languages. PHP, HTML, JS, CSS, INI,...

    I use notepad mainly becuase I have a bad history with dreamweaver, once it changed my tables widths to 200% (?) and other annoying things, so I despised it for a long time. Also, notepd loads like that *clicks fingers* whereas dreamweaver takes ages (on my comp, which is crap anyway). Although judging by some of the comments made here I might take a look...

    DW takes a lot to load, and is very slow, but can't be compared. It has an infinite number of features.

    If you like hand coded pages, try at least a editor that colors the syntax.

    I use HTML-Kit personally... Anybody else... I find it very useful, as you can preview all code as the page you create instantly.

    How do you make it not W3C complaint? I've never had issues. I mostly use code view however, using design view to easily convert content text and insert images.

    Blackdragonhide, Dreamweaver will come up with browser check errors if your code is not written correctly, you can access them (in DWMX2004 anyways) by clicking the button next to the "title" box. Just click on "Show all Errors" and a little box will come up at the bottom and show you all the errors, the line it's on and a description of why it is errornous and which browsers will be affected by the error.
