Another alternative to Photoshop Elements is the free Paint.NET

I don't use my current editor for anything but editing so ability to view page is irrelevant to me. I have my PC set up as a simple server with IIS and PHP and can see changes immediately via local site using any of the browsers I have installed.

The only missing thing I've found so far is the ability, as in Dreamweaver, to drop down an options list when I type an ampersand. I can't find an add-on that works and does the same sort of thing, it would be handy but by no means a show stopper.

I'll probably use it when I have to do some site updates early next week and see what's what.

W7 arrived today from Amazon. Something had been dropped on it so that the plastic DVD case was cracked and splintered up against the DVD surface! It's on its way back for a replacement.

How about Visual Web Developer 2010 Express (free)? Add the HTML5/CSS3 intellisense update.

I started to install that earlier. After 3-4 hours, including massive downloads and 3 reboots, it still isn't installed so I'm now cancelling it, that also seems to be taking an age.

All seems very good reason not to use it.

Did you use the web installer? Try downloading the all-in-one ISO file (larger download, but quicker and more straightforward installation), burn to DVD and then install VWD from that.

In reply to a post by cheshire_man:
Dreamweaver MX 2002. I only use it as a code editor for HTML/PHP/Javascipt, I don't use it for actual design.
I use context.
In reply to a post by cheshire_man:
Nero 6, really only use it for the actual burning of discs - ImgBurn?
I like CDBurnerXP
In reply to a post by cheshire_man:
Photoshop Elements 4 - I've got V6 but don't like its black screen.
The GIMP is a great alternative
