    Are you looking for a WYSIWYG editor or a regular one?
    http://www.kompozer.net/ is a good Free WYSIWYG editor.

    For hand coding HTML pages, you can use any text editor with syntax highlighting. Try one of these:
    Notepad ++ is a general purpose text editor that can be used for HTML coding
    HTML-Kit - HTML editor with advanced features including browser previews
    http://bluefish.openoffice.nl/ - Can be used for both programming and web designing.

    If you're using Windows... Notepad++
    If you're using Mac... Coda

    Both are small, slim and very well built. That's my two cents

    I tried Coda recently, and wasn't as impressed as I expected. Much prefer Dreamweaver (code view, of course). Also tried TextMate (coupled with Transmit for ftp) and that was a really nice combo. TextMate is ver slick and powerful... though not enough for me to give up Dw.

    I second Coda: granted it is definitely not as sophisticated as textmate or dreamweaver, but if you want simplicity with the best ftp support built into an editor, then Coda is your pick. Also its subversion support isn't too shabby either. Coda has several Transmit components in its editor as well. And I'll be honest: the look and feel just makes me happy. And I find that I code better when I'm happy . I coded in aptana/eclispe for a long time and wanted to throw my computer out the window.

    I use PSPad - http://www.pspad.com. Used to be a big fan of notepad++ but its FTP support appears to be discontinued and was always a little buggy.

    Netbeans is very nice too, but a little bloated and word wrap isn't quite implemented yet.

    I also used to use Dreamweaver but found it did too much too slowly.

    DreamWeaver is good HTML editor which supports WYSIWYG for creating both Static and Dynamic websites...

    I use either Coda or DreamWeaver as HTML editor. I prefer Coda, though.

    Forget any other editor, and use IDE like Eclipse with PDT, it's far best editor you will find for HTML, CSS, JS, PHP and so on, so why not putting everything together?

    As I see developers work I see all sorts of different environments. I usually find that if they are using notepad++ or eclipse they end up writing good code. I have rarely seen someone using dreamweaver and producing good code.

    It's an excellent code editor, if used as such, and a lot of good code has been posted around here that you just don't know was done in Dw.
