    I'm still using an old version of Dreamweaver to do all my coding in (and have been for years), and I've not explored any of the other options for a long time... am I missing out any any great developments? :)

    DW still does a great job for me, so there's no huge reason to upgrade to anything else - but I'd be interested to know if a better WYSIWYG editor exists (ideally one that is still great for PHP coding).

    I look at editors every now and then, and made the mistake of checking out that Microsoft one that replaced Frontpage. DW is still the one to use in my opinion.

    Did you just say frontpage is gone?
    And yes Dreamweaver is very helpful when php tells you there is an error on a certain line. All you have to do is find that number in dreamweaver, and in my case comment it out till it can be fixed.

    I'll try downloading the latest DW and see what it's like :)

    I tried the new Microsoft Expression suite yesterday, and I'm really impressed with the WYSIWYG rendering - it's managed to get some complex sites looking perfect in design mode (which DW couldn't quite do). I've not checked out the coding element to it yet though, which is my main concern.

    I still just use Notepad++ or Notepadlite - never liked any of the WYSIWYG web editors
