web site programs

I'm curious what you design professionals are using to create web pages
with, text editors or WYSIWYG programs. Which is the way to go for
professinal quality code?

Learn HTML and use a Text Editor!

I use Dreamweaver - but mostly for the site management side of things. Most
of the coding I do by hand in the code view.

For professional quality code, no WYSIWYG compares with hand-coding
(assuming you know what you are doing ;-) ).

The web is not wysiwyg. Any program which claims to be wysiwyg is a
fraud. imho.

If by professional you mean what you see on msnbc.com, or other such
sites, then use Dreamweaver. It will turn out the same lousy code the
big sites use.

If you mean quality code as used on sites like w3.org, use a text editor.

that's dramatic. Do you argue when your car only gets 32mpg instead of 33?

I don't see anything on w3.org that Dreamweaver couldn't handle. I find
Dreamweaver quite capable of producing clean simple HTML/XHTML compliant
code. (Just like it's capable of creating lousy code -- just like somebody
using a text editor could do.)

For the original poster: learn to hand code using a text editor. You'll
probably find yourself able to handle code tweaks faster than popping back
in DW, which can be a bit slow at times. If you're working on a larger site,
hand code your template and then use DW to pump in all your content, drop in
images, etc. Then hand code to tweak. I don't think any one tool will do it
all for you.

There are many good HTML validators, not least, of course being w3c's. However, they only handle one page at a time. Is there a free web based served, or pc program, which will crawl my site validating the HTML? Bonus features like CSS validation, link checking, spell checking, etc are welcome of course, but most important for me at the moment is HTML validation.
