Crimson Editor is what I started with... although it is very similar to Notepad++. Nowdays I use KDevelop but that's a Linux app.

I'd say continue using Notepad++ till you get Dreamweaver to use... or see if there is a trial version of Dreamweaver available to learn a few tricks before college gives you the full version. Dreamweaver is pretty good for html, especially those who are more design oriented (unlike me, who prefers back-end coding).

Yea i was using notepad ++ and was enjoying it because it was all the user using tags and stuff, i think starting out with a harder html builder is better so that you can get used to manually entering in all the information, and when you gain the knowledge of that you can begin using the builders that make it faster.

Indeed. If that is the case Notepad itself is good. But why stress yourself when you can use syntax highlighting and such other features?

Better to use a html editor for its basic purposes.... stuff like syntax highlighting, auto-indentation, project management, etc. and not for something that will do all the work for you and you never learn to do it by yourself. That is the only drawback for newbies to start with Dreamweaver (IMO)... that they get too used to all the graphical features rather than getting used to manually creating code.

If you're just starting out with HTML, use Notepad. Seriously. That's the only way you'll actually learn the language. Otherwise, Visual Studio has a nice HTML editor, but that isn't free, and I don't think the Express Editions have it...

They do, in the free version of Visual Web Developer. The other Express Editions have the XML editor.
