Between that and VS, I think dreamweaver is a waste of money and an adobe scam!

Hey, nice to see you around again.
Yip, dreamweaver sucks. I have it but almost never use it. VS is a bit too bloated for my everyday needs, but I use it whenever I'm working with Microsoft stuff.
For beginners, the best free tool remains Trellian Webpage (although it also has dreamweaver levels of code quality, at least you don't have to pay) and the best paid tool is WYSIWYG Web Builder (which is usually pretty good with the code it makes). Personally I only work with code directly though - my tool of choice is CodeLobster PHP Edition, which is free and pretty powerful (there's a couple of paid extensions for code completion with Wordpress, JQuery etc that are quite reasonably priced too). I also use my own custom variant of the Ace Editor to edit sites through the web browser, which I find improves my productivity slightly.
I'm the main developer for the site. If you have any problems, ideas, questions or concerns please send me a message.
