    I currently use Coda, by Panic. It's Mac only though. I've been hearing a lot of good things about a new code editor in beta, called SublimeText2. It doesn't have all the same features, but has plenty of others more conducive to typing code than producing it through a WYSIWYG interface. It's in beta now, though it works well and it's available on all platforms, not just Macs. I haven't used it a lot yet, but from what I've seen it works well. I think you might like it.

    I'll take a peek at Sublime since its both linux and windows. I'm cutting over to windows because the sales guy at Tiger Direct Sold me a computer that was "supposed" to be Linux compatible but wasn't....

    Is there a non DreamWeaver WYSIWYG code editor out there other than the site creator's?

    I'm sure there are other WYSIWYG editors, but I wouldn't know what they are since I never use them. They make it harder for me to develop websites.

    I don't get the feeling the OP is looking for a WYSIWYG. I think she's mainly curious about the one site builder. I could be wrong of course, but that was my feeling.

    I think that Easy WebContent's HTML editor is helpful. They allow you to update more than just text, you can add photos, galleries, and more! They offer a free trial period for their site builder and HTML editor, and the products they offer are totally worth it. You’ll get an easy-to-use site editor that will allow you to customize your own personal, professional looking website. Easy Web is a reliable and trustworthy company that can help promote business and/or yourself.
    Hope this will help you out!

    There is a free alternative to DreamWeaver and what vangogh is using. Look into Aptana its open source and does everything you will ever need and even has a built in FTP. I dont use it I have DW but my business partner stands by it. I honestly would find a professional to do it. I myself am a web designer and vangogh can agree with me on this, once you go in with a 3rd party program that offers a "quick fix" to help you edit your site, i more than likely will end up doing damage to your site and as a web designer it makes it extremely difficult to see what the original code was and what that 3rd party program injected in there. If you have any question contact me and I'll come up with something to help you out.

    I downloaded Aptana a few years ago and gave it a try. I didn't like it at the time, though I think it was still very, very new. It looks like it's matured a lot since then. I think code editors (and even text editors) are such a personal choice. If it's your business, it's an application you use all day, every day so you have to like using it. There are definitely free code editors out there that work and work well. I'm happy to pay for the ones I use since I think they're worth the money, but that shouldn't imply you can find a free one you'll like. On Windows maybe people swear by Notepad++, which is also free.

    I would definitely recommend something more than the basic Notepad. If you spend time coding things like syntax highlighting alone will be a huge boost in production.

    Yep. I do agree.
