I don't know the answers to all of your questions, but
I can give you my opinions on a few.

1. My favorite HTML editor is Homesite by Allaire.
It's great for people who'd rather write their own
HTML code instead of letting a WYSIWYG program like
FrontPage do it.

2. For simplicity and value, you can't get much
better than PaintShop Pro. Don't quote me on this,
but I've heard that PaintShop Pro 5 has layers and
improved text editing features.

6. When putting images in an HTML document, I've
always followed a simple rule: For graphics,
diagrams, screen shots, etc., use GIF; for
photographs, use JPG. I haven't worked much with PDF
files, but when I have I've used BMP images and have
never had a problem.

I hope this helps!
