Basic Linux (DreamHost) based web site; what is a good web editor for Windows?

Have been asked to add/update a client web site.  Looks hosted on DreamHost and is running "Linux" (all I know so far from current webmaster.)

Can access via FileZilla and now need to add some pages, with photos.

What is a good, clean & simple (and free) web design tool for Windows that I can get started on this project?

As long as you have ftp access you can use a Dreamweaver equivalent like aptana. Whichever works for you.

Really looking for WYSIWYG to get this one off my plate and then come back to more in depth.  Site is very basic; is aptana a good WYSIWYG editor?

Unfortunately no, you will have to get your hands dirty with aptana. I've used Microsoft Expression Web before (Latest version of Frontpage) and it has some nice features that you can use. You can test it out. I've heard that OpenBexi is a good wysiwyg editor but i haven't personally used it so you might just have to download it and use it for yourself. Just out of curiosity, is it a static HTML site or a dynamic PHP or equivalent site?

I thinks its static, not too fancy.  Expression Web, i did install on another workstation but looks like a good html editor.  Didn't see much in the way of WYSIWYG, but didn;t spend much time with it.

Well since you put it that way why don't you go with Dreamweaver CC? Costs $29.99 month to month (Yeah adobe switched to montlhy and yearly plans). You can even build dynamic webpages with it and since you are buying why not actually use it for personal projects? The pro is you are using a program that is quite popular and robust, the con is you have to pay as you go. Meaning you give $29,99 for this month of use but you have to pay another $29.99 the other month to keep going. But since you say it is static and not too fancy you could actually get past it in a day or two. But if you want my opinion, I wouldn't pay for Dreamweaver cause you can use many things these days to make a website. You can even code it yourself. If it is as simple as I understood you could spend an extra day looking up html tutorials and get it over with overnight.
