Freeware - Arachnophilia -   Text editor with a lot of automation for standard HTML tags.   www.arachnoid .com   This is the one I started with and learned HTML.

Tutorial - Web Tutor -  Great tutorial on basic HTML, Forms, Frames, and Tables.  Very clear and easy to use.  Downloadable to your hard drive.

High end - Dreamweaver -  Does it all.  HTML, DHTML, layers, Shockwave, etc.  About $300 US, but there is a fully working demo available.

I have also tried the demos of PageMill and PageMaker, but I didn't like them as well as Dreamweaver or Arachnophilia.

There are lot of others out there, but these I have tried.

At present I use Arachnophilia and Dreamweaver almost exclusively.

I have also tried FrontPage98, but found the necessity of keeping all the extra  _vti directories a pain.  Others will disagree with me.

FTP - WS_FTP -  Has a version called WS_FTPLE that is sufficient for basic functions.  Downloadable demo with nag screen.  Free to government employees, local, state or federal.
