Justin, I suggest you take another look a Homesite. Like you, I was once a
hardcore Notepad/WordPad dude (well, CygnusEd, on the Amiga -- still the
best damn text editor I've ever used), but now that I've switched to
Homesite, I can't go back. I'm barely even scratching the surface of its
functions; I just find that tools like the extended search and replace, the
point-and-click special character chart, color-coded text, snippets, and
one-key preview (to name a few) greatly speed up my development time. It's
no different from what I was doing before, just quicker and more convenient
since the tools are all there. As a consequence, I'm freer to experiment
with alternate designs, and managing larger sites (mine grew from a handful
of pages to about a hundred in a few months, and is still expanding) is
