You don't need all that fancy shmancy development software... just use a text editor. I use Notepad++ and it's great.

It depends. If you work on large sites with hundreds of pages and several sections of the site, then Dreamweaver (or Expression Web) is great. If you just have a small personal website with maybe 10 pages, then a normal text editor will will take you longer, but you'll get the same result without spending tons of money. I personally don't use a text editor anymore for creating and maintaining websites...I use Microsoft Expression Studio (basically a full-fledged web design suite comparable to Adobe's suite, but tons cheaper). I am able to design the site much faster, connect to my web server much easier, and, since I maintain multiple websites, I am able to switch sites very easily...but then again, I'm all about things that increase productivity and make my life easier.

I personally don't like Dreamweaver at all, and I find the HTML that it generates is just horrible (this was a few years ago though). I prefer to not use any wysiwyg editors and do all the coding at hand. For most of my web development (ASP.Net) I use Visual Studio.

The simplest way to design website is using CMS such as wordpress. It is very easy to design and publish the website

I think the dreamweaver is more convinient and professional and it's good for big projects that need control , debug , ... .

but notepad++ is simple and comfortable for small projects ... .

by simple i mean it's lighter , better , ...

best wishes

Re: Dreamweaver or notepad++
if you want to learn something more about development then use notepad++ otherwise use dream weaver. Because For fresher it is better to learn codes in note pad++ while in dream weaver automatically tags are generated by the software.
