I use Textpad for most small projects because it highlights code well and
opens about as fast as Notepad. I use Dreamweaver for larger projects
because the later versions let you select tables and code elements and
collapse them to get them out of the way. Occasionally I use Visual Studio,
if I'm prototyping another version of an actual product. I very rarely (if
ever) use the design view of either Dreamweaver or Visual Studio because
they both reformat the code and don't allow the precision necessary for very
detailed work.

I use TextMate (http://macromates.com/) ... it's by far the best
editor around. Mac only though, but IMHO worth the switch just for
this alone.

The only Windows editor that has the same features is jEdit, which is
amazing but ugly and hard to use. Some people get used to it and love
it though.

I use Dreamweaver, CSSEdit, and TextWrangler.

CSSEdit is an outstanding tool for working with CSS. I blogged about
it here:

I use whatever editor is available, e.g. Coda or Dreamweaver, and Movable
Type, the blogging tool. MT allows me to build and serve prototypes quickly
and efficiently.

All the best,

For me there is no perfect tool, but I've been swearing by (and at) Dreamweaver for over 7 years through 5 releases. Like the others I use a backup text editor when necessary.

When looking at any tools consider the features that help you.

TAG AUTOCOMPLETE helps speed a lot of hand edits. MULTI-FILE SEARCH AND REPLACE is another major feature to make changes across entire sites. FTP INTEGRATION manages all the directory placement and makes file synchronization a "no brainer." TEMPLATING & LIBRARY ELEMENTS also speed prototyping, especially for large projects.

I may be different from most since I almost never (ever) use the WYSIWYG mode since I code everything to strict web standards with CSS-driven layout (later used to establish the HTML code for developers). Dreamweaver almost never (ever) shows complex layouts correctly or in a way that can be edited in place (I've a long history of occasionally creating HTML/CSS that crash Dreamweaver). It's value to me is often to help find typos.

Dreamweaver. Used to be a Homesite fancier but the more recent
versions were such deaders that I decided to take the Adobe/Macromedia
hint and use Dreamweaver instead.

I use BBEdit. I used to stop random people on the street and
evangelize it. I don't do much HTML prototyping anymore but I still
love the program.

Ahh, BBEdit. That brings back fond memories of the time before I went
to the Windows side.

For me it's HomeSite. I love the extensibility. I've heard good
things about TopStyle and Notepad as well.

I adore BBEdit...i started using it in about 94 and it's still my
prototyper of choice. Failing it, I like Dreamweaver.

Let me introduce you to Aptana (http://www.aptana.com/) as my , current, HTML editor, it supports outlining HTML,CSS,Javascript (so you know what div in your html), allows you to see directly what errors you have in your CSS and Javascript, and the best of all, correct Firefox and IE preview. Some other minor features such as ajax library:p.

But it's not a perfect one, I must say, the first loading is takes quite some time. Aptana is based on Java :p, also it doesn't support outlining programming language like PHP, C#.

But it doesn't hurt to try, it's free anyway ^^

Good luck,
Lya

Dreamweaver for coding.

Xylescope for debugging layouts and reverse engineering (Mac only).

MODx (the PHP/MySQL -based content management framework) when I need
to go beyond a modest set of static HTML pages.
