[muglo] Re: Freeway Express

GoLive and Dreamweaver do have steeper learning curves than some of  
the others mentioned, but they are also more flexible. I have used  
both in addition to Freeway. Freeway was useful provided you were  
willing to work within its parameters which did not provide much  
scope for user level changes. So it depends on how much design you  
want to get into.

You might want to try Nvu

http://www.nvu.com/

Open source (i.e., free) and cross-platform (Mac, Linux, PC) and is  
reasonably full featured, especially given its ease of use. It seems  
to be embedded in a solid development community but I don't  that  
much about its developers.
