    Best entry level web editing software?
    Hi Guys.

    I am currently using a PC to edit and maintain my website but I obviously want to switch this over to mac. I have looked into dreamweaver which seems cool but is pricy for the basic amount of editing and maintenance I need to do.

    Currently I am using CoffeCup, can anyone recommend something mac equivalent along the same line?

    Thanks in advance!

    You may want to try KompoZer.

    There is a program called rapidweaver that i used with no schooling at all about web design. I believe it is very cheap also. I got the free version that they were giving away right before they released the new version.
    I Love Free Software.

    Thanks for the replies, I tried both out and they are both alright, however I am looking for something that includes an ftp manager and something where I can edit the html of the webpages.

    Thanks however for the great help so far!

    I'll second RapidWeaver. I'm not very bright and I was able to quickly build a decent looking site with it.

    And of course, every Mac comes with iWeb, which is pretty simple too.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    KompoZer allows you to edit the HTML by clicking on the source tab near the bottom of the screen also it has a built in publishing feature to upload your work to the server but I don't use it.

    I'm more of a programming guy. I find myself daily using TextMate, CSSEdit2, sometimes BBEdit and I find Coda very useful

    You could use other things such as DreamWeaver from Adobe.com which has a WYSIWYG interface.
