There are a number of free editors that people use. In the end, it boils down to personal preference as to which is "best".
Please check the licensing for each piece of software. While some of what is listed is wide-open, some is free for personal use only.
- Notepad: basic text editing
- Notepad ++: A souped-up version of Notepad, with code coloring, collapsing, and more.
- NVU: a free WYSIWYG editor, in the genre of Dreamweaver. Cross platform (Win, Lin, Mac), fairly robust, standards-aware.
- HTML-KIT:"HTML-Kit is a full-featured editor designed to help HTML, XHTML and XML authors to edit, format, lookup help, validate, preview and publish web pages.">
- XStandard: "XStandard is the leading standards-compliant plug-in WYSIWYG editor for Windows desktop applications and browser-based content management systems (IE/Mozilla/Firefox/Netscape)"
