That's OK, I went ahead and downloaded it. And downloaded it. And download it.

I'm using Win95 <gag>. I've tried using just notepad before, and all I could 
think of was, "there's GOT to be an easier 
way...".  Anyway, about 1st Page, it also comes with 450 built in JavaScripts, 
a complete HTML 4/SSI/CSS 
reference, and an HTML cleaning utility.

Yeah, that's my main concern. I haven't tested it out enough to know whether it 
generates clean HTML. It looked 
pretty good at first glance, though.

That's definitely the least resource-intensive route to go, but I like having 
the built-in HTML stuff. 
I guess I'm a weenie :)

Also, another WYSIWYG HTML editor I've used before is AOLPress 
(http://www.aolpress.com/). Despite its name, it 
hardly has anything to do with AOL except the logo.
