    romanticcowboy, what kind of "web design" are you looking at? I'm a bit old fashioned since I still use HTML and PHP. As a result I still do things with vi or notepad, depending on the OS I'm working in. I also use a bit of Gimp (both Linux and Windows versions) since upgrades to my old Photoshop 2.5 on my Mac would cost me a near fortune. In linux I did find Quanta Plus to be a great and effective tool for PHP and other web languages. (not knowing if you have Linux or are comfortable with Linux to use it).

    Although you're looking for something quick and easy, I wouldn't depend solely on a WYSIWYG editor to give you what you need. I would take a quick refresher on HTML. WYSIWYG editors are great, but it's even better to understand what you're doing and why certain tags do what they do.

    Here's a quick cheatsheet:

    Delving back into HTML
    http://webmonkey.wired.com/webmonkey...g/html_basics/

    I really like 1st Page 2000...it's a great and easy to use tool that can be customized based to your experience level. It supports more than HTML as well, so if you would like to build on different languages later, you will already have learned the program. Best of all it's free!

    For graphics on a budget and without the advanced experience, Paint Shop Pro will be more than enough for your design needs. I think the learning curve for PSP is a lot less steep in comparison to Photoshop. Output quality is just as good, just handled differently. I would try eBay or shopping around for it on the web. It's currently in version 9, but if you're willing to take version 8 you can get it for $30.00 in some places.
    There are only two kinds of programming languages: those people always bitch about and those nobody uses.

    An awesome deal here

    If I didn't already have Dreamweaver, Flash and ColdFusion I would probably get these myself.

    Don't delay this won't be happening forever.

    And no this is not me promoting my own auction - so no flames please, I have nothing to do with it.

    Enjoy

    An awesome free editor I used in school was HTML-Kit by Chami. Its WYIWYG and has tons of plug-ins.

    My personal pref though is Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004. If you want that you can look for it cheap by getting it OEM or if you're a student you can get the entire Macromedia Studio MX 2004 suite for $100.

    If you want to develop in .NET you can get the free Visual Web Developer 2005 which is quite awesome. Basically it's Visual Studio mini. For application development you can also get the SQL Server Desktop Engine which lets you make SQL databases for local development.


    A good place to learn HTML and such is http://www.w3schools.com


    Good luck!
