I like HotDog. I'm using an old version (2.07), so I have no idea what
today's HotDog is like, but the version I use is not WYSIWYG and doesn't
hide any of the code from you (in fact, you can type the whole thing in
ASCII if you want, although that would defeat the purpose of using an
editor). It just automates some of the more tedious chores. At one time
you could download a 30-day evaluation copy from www.sausage.com -- I
don't know if you still can, but it's worth a look.
