    I've heard bad things about dreamweaver and through experience realized how badly and poorly their application sticks to coding standards. Apparently Golive is to the tad of clean coding. I'm about to checking it out. Again, mostly I use notepad, but heres a poll of what you guys think.

    At least Dreamweaver's code is consistantly horrible... Golive's code is just horrible.

    WYSIWYG have their place as long as you know when to use them and when you need to dive into the code.

    I've never used GoLive, so I'm gonna have to go with Dreamweaver. And I agree with Keyzs. As convenient as WYSIWYG is, if you wanna ensure your pages are to standard, you're gonna have to get your hands dirty.

    i use dreamweaver for two reason...

    1. its makes it easier to read the code because of the colors
    2. I like the feature to set up a site and then edit remotely. so when i save it, it saves on my server and a local copy

    other then that i really never used it for anything else, so i guess i can't state an opinion on the WYSIWYG functionality of it

    GoLive for me. I have never really noticed any extra code being interjected. I can also use the code editor though...

    perhaps you should look at a good IDE other than macromedia? Zend IDE is awsome, for example. I also like Visual SlickEdit.
