I"m looking for an easy to use HTML editor that someone without HTML experience can use easily, and that creates email-compliant HTML. I use Dreamweaver personally but I'm looking for something a little more straightforward and without extra features for someone without HTML experience.
I dont think you'll get anything more user friendly than Dreamweaver in my opinion... only one with a good view/preview pane for the inexperienced users...
I use CoffeeCup Free HTML Editor and it works great for creating e-mail templates to upload to CM. I have very basic knowledge of HTML and I found it a simple program to use.
