As far as those two goes, I'm going with notepad. But then again I've always used notepad. If you wanna use a WYSIWYG however, I'd recommend Macromedia Dreamweaver. It even has a nifty name :D

Website reviews should be placed in the Website Review forum; you've also gotta review 3 other sites before you can post yours. As for Frong Page, it's Microsoft ;)

Front page is know for exploits and/or often targeted for the same due to it's popularity. Additionally FP will delete all your .htaccess files if ever removed so you better know what you're doing when you start using it. If I only havd those two to choose from I to would say Notepad. If you want a decent and easy to use editior try ACE HTML editor. I use that only because of it's awesome search and replace features.

I would suggest a better generic text editor than Notepad.

Frontpage (and most WYSI-N-WYGs i've seen) produces messy HTML code that is a pain to maintain.

Plus, using NotePad generally helps you UNDERSTAND what the code you are writing means.

Also, it is not as if HTML and CSS are particularly complicated, except when the writer makes it so.

I use Frontpage (a license issue)

The newer versions can also work with layers, but I am only using layers if I cannot work with tables anymore.

Furthermore I always keep track of the source codes, I write a lot directly in html and ASP so I work a lot in the source code screen of frontpage.

I must say it still got me where I wanted.
