My uni use Eclipse with a code formatting plugin so what we can see when we break coding conventions or good style. I noticed it helped friends who had never coded before so it may be worth a while.

When I'm not working with Java, I like to use Sublime Text for python, GoLand, php, html and css. It's aesthetics are lovely, and it has nice plugins you can install. Stuff like formatting, markdown to HTML etc...

Notepad++ is an excellent code editor (I use it and love it), but cannot be compared to Dreamweaver, which is a WYSIWYG editor. Notepad++ would be useless to anyone who is not comfortable working directly with code instead of using a GUI.

+1 to Microsoft Expression Web although I'm not a big fan of WYSWYG editors in general. I doubt you'll be able to find any legitimate, free alternatives to DreamWeaver but I'd be happy to be proven wrong.

Maybe a notepad++ is a good alternate to dreamweaver. It is also less heavier then dreamweaver.

I agree with Notepad++. It's better in every way like syntax highlight, more support for languages, fast loading time and good for big files. I've written plugins for it and coded php, html, css with it.

None of the above are alternatives to dreamweaver. DW is a WYSIWYG editor. A true alternative would be Quanta Plus or APTANA (aptana.com) - free ones i mean.

If you really know HTML/CSS/JS you do NOT need any WYSIWYG editor at all.

The HTML they generate usually sucks...

I am using Notepad++ with the Emmet plugin (former Zen Coding) for years, free and fast. DW is expensive and useless to me.

Notepad ++ is good I think. But Dreamweaver is best near me.

Notepad++ is a good alternative to dreamweaver but you need to have a good command on development in order to use notepad++

Quanta plus : it is open source, Linux based, You can almost have a feel of Dreamweaver envoirnment. It supports javascript,css2 etc while the drawback is it has no direct support for SVG and HTML5.

APANTA is another open source better than Quanta plus. It supports windows, mac, Linux. Disadvantage is no spell check, no support for RSS, Xpath.

I think Dreamweaver is good at all but if you want to use something else then i would suggest you to use notepad++. Somewhere it is very good but still i will recommend you to use Dreamweaver.
