    FTP Utility & HTML Editor for PC?

    I have a client that wants to start updating his site himself. He's learned some HTML and needs to get a freeware FTP Utility and HTML Editor. Being on a Mac, I don't know what to recommend to him. Can anyone give me a few suggestions I can give him, rather than just turning him loose on Google?

    Thanks!

    Macromedia Contribute is good for inexperienced/novice users, I would recommend having a look into getting that set up on his site. Really easy to set up and use

    Yes, either contribute or dreamweaver would be good. I believe both have 30 day free trials.

    Yup, although Dreamweaver's only an option if you're willing to spend a lot. A Contribute licence over here in the UK is about 70, a fraction of the cost of Dreamweaver. Contribute is essentially a reduced-functionality version of DW.

    Thanks, guys, but I'm looking for freeware, and not a WYSIWYG editor. Unfortunately his site is a custom auction application (not built by us) and is a mess of HTML and Cold Fusion tags. DW doesn't even know how to handle rendering it in Design View.

    On the Mac, I use BBEditLite and Fetch. I'm looking for the PC equivalents of those.

    Oh, on PCs we have this little thing called Notepad

    Seriously though, I think there's a freeware app called Crimson Edit that will fit your needs just fine.

    If it's cold fusion, you might want to try the 30 day trial of cold fusion studio. For freeware, you might try HTML-Kit as mentioned above, and ws ftp for ftp. Just do a google search for ws ftp.
