Another excellent HTML editor (not wsywg) is Arachnophilia. It is free
("careware" - read about that concept on the Arachnoid site:
http://www.arachnoid.com/arachnophilia/index.html, you can also download
there), it also colors HTML tags and attributes and "shows" where your
possible mistake is when you are missing something. It is also small enough
to load onto a floppy disc and doesn't use up a lot of system resources.

My advice is to not use *any* of these. Instead, buy yourself a book on HTML
("HTML 4.0 Unleashed" is a good start) and learn HTML. Then do it all in
Notepad.

I'm hoping you mean "...do it all in any generic text editor" and not
literally to use Notepad. I use TextPad on Windows <http://www.textpad.com>
and find it useful, mainly because of the HTML syntax colorization (adds to
readability), balancing (closing brackets, parentheses, and stuff like
that), and macro language. It also has links to HTML syntax-checking
packages, which is especially useful when you're learning HTML.

On the Mac side, I use BBEdit <http://www.barebones.com>, which not only
does all of that but also has an integrated HTML syntax checker, plus a lot
of built-in automation for creating some common page elements.
