    Depends... Frontpage 2000? Dreamweaver? 1st Page? It's personal preference.

    Everyone has preferences! Some of these are controlled by
    1) our previous experience
    2) our budget

    I figure just start out with something, learn to like it and use it. If you cannot do as much with the program as you like, go and get a different type of software.
    I use FrontPage 2000, Dream Weaver 3, and PSP6.
    Started with psp5 and front page 98, and got good at them and bought the improvments.

    /me senses this will turn into a FP vs DW debate.

    Dreamweaver and FrontPage both have their place. I think that FP is generally suited to people who make sites for their grandmother and don't care how the code is. DW is generally for more advanced people who are more serious. I am not saying that more advanced people can't use FP (freesources, TWT, and a few others are living with it) but personally I disagree with them choosing FP over DW.

    I think that AceHTML is definately worth a shot - http://visicommmedia.com/ It's a great text editor.

    Dreamweaver is what I use. It is worth the money.

    I use Dreamweaver and Fireworks for most of my work.

    Expensive yes, but when you work in a University you can get these things dirt cheap!

    Also, don't forget if you're a student / teacher in the UK and you want a copy of Macromedia Software for personal use you can get it cheaply through the Chest program at a greatly reduced price. Have a look at http://www.chest.ac.uk/software/macromedia/

    It's for personal or academic use though. (I use a commercial copy of DW / FW for non-university commercial type-work that my training company bought me).

    I use FP 2000 for my sites, and don't seem to have much of a problem with it. My boss had me working with PageMill over the summer, and I can honestly say it isn't worth using-- it's pretty basic and the navigation is somewhat poor.
