Hi, FrontPage, DreamWeaver and many more..

But IMHO, don't go for tools.. they will ruin you !!! Write your code using simple text editors like Notepad

I think your best bet would be to look into DreamWeaver.  Plenty of options with it and it shouldn't be that hard to learn how to use.  Plus there are plenty of people on here to help you out with any questions you might have.


I am personally not a big fan of FrontPage.

If you do a google search you should be able to find a free 30 day trial version of DreamWeaver to try out.

I agree with mgh_mgharish,

I tend to go for text editors, but with highlighters,

try http://www.pspad.com/ - it's a multihighlighter, so it helps writing code, but doesn't do it for you

PSPad is free,

hope that helps.

There's also a free editor 1st Page from Evrsoft which is quite similar to Macromedia's HomeSite.  I second the vote for Dreamweaver but agree that it's really important to know what the HTML, CSS, etc. is doing (which is the best reason to start using Notepad).

Html --> Dreamweaver

PHP --> Zend Studio (Dreamweaver also works for develop PHP but Zend is far more advanced)

CSS --> Dreamweaver

I think that Dreamweaver is an easiest tool to use. However, if you want to develop a more powerful application that handle a large amount of data or logic, then i would recommend Visual Studio 2005.   There is a full Microsoft Express Web Developer Edition software trial for a year that can be downloaded free from Microsoft.  Also, SQL 2005 is also free trial.

Um, is not MS Express editions totally "free"?

There's also the open source NVU (which is even portable on USB drive), Microsoft FrontPage Express (outdated & hard to find), and Microsoft Web Matrix (now replaced by MS Express Web Developer Edition & can be tricky to find).

If you come from a VB and VC++ background, your best bet will be the free Web Matrix for Asp.Net:

Not that the prior suggestions are wrong, but the webmatrix is pretty decent and designed exactly for your situation.
