You might also check out CSE HTML Validator

much cheaper.

I don't know Nvu either, although I've seen a lot of folks recommend
it lately. I never liked FrontPage, but that's a personal preference.

What does AIT not do that it claims to do? I use it a lot for printed
docs, online Help files, and Web sites (my site uses AIT with custom
HTML templates). Their support (definitely friendly) has been a bit
hit-or-miss lately from what I've heard...however, the user's group
tends to be pretty accurate.

I used HomeSite for years, and loved it. However, I always got it as
part of Dreamweaver (well, after they bought Allaire)...maybe they
didn't sell it standalone when I was purchasing it? I switched to CSE
HTML Validator last year and stopped installing HomeSite...CSE gets
updated on a regular basis, and part of the updates include validation
against the latest W3C specs.
