Depending on how you use Dreamweaver, some of its features are not going to be easy to replace.

But if you just need an editor, NVU should work.

If you just want an editor, EditPlus works great. (Or look into visual studio web developer express edition)

I used to use TextWrangler quite a bit, and early on BBEdit. But if you are looking for something that will give you 'design view' and 'editing view', I am not sure.

Okay, I found a great link on a blog I check regularly. Check out the link, there were some great open source apps there! http://www.designvitality.com/blog/2007/07/the-open-source-web-design-toolbox-100-tools-resources-and-template-sources/ Also, here is another one I thought was helpful: http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2007/08/14/best-of-july-2007/ Good luck!

NVU is great as a free app. There is a newer version of it called Komposer that has fixed some of the bugs with NVU.

NVU, for me, was only free to download. I tried NVU last year. Wasted too much time fiddling. Look at http://www.serif.com/webplus/webplusx2, WebplusX2 30 day free trial, then $79.99. Looks like it might be well worth the $79.99. You have 30 days to find out. Let us know.

Anyone using or tried Serf WebPlusX2?
