    I've used Kompozer in the past, and had no problems with it.

    Aptana Studio was developed specially for dynamic website, so WP and others work well with it. I've tried most other editors out there, open-source or not, for me DW and Aptana are the only good enough ones.

    @Bibanu thanks didn't know such software even existed (never thought of looking) but still useful for my company were I can't have pirated software.
    @Wannabie I love your profile image

    Although dreamweaver is very good. But if you have trouble with this then you can try these links: http://www.aptana.com, http://bluefish.openoffice.nl, http://www.w3.org/Amaya

    Serif WebPlus ain't bad for drag and drop free software.
    It's great for newbies and old hats alike.
    You can slap a site together in minute with no HTML knowledge.
