    Looking for free/ cheap web dev software to develop / edit simple websites. Need to have access to the underlying html.

    Perhaps slightly different from what you're looking for, but Notepad++ is a much better text editor than Windows' built-in Notepad, if you want to make HTML pages from scratch (or even just to replace Notepad when you e.g. "view source" on websites)
    .:: NOTEPAD++ ::.

    visual studio express edition is free. useful for html, javascript etc. But on the dev side, it is asp.net/c# etc and not PHP.

    KompoZer is a WYSIWYG free website editor - but starting with it is something of a challenge - OTOH there's a lot of help on the web.

    Coffee Cup give out a free HTML editor.

    Using both, you can get by for simple sites.

    Coffee Cup is very good.

    If anyone fancies cut price Adobe stuff, a £50 night course, gets you student prices via the college ;)
