    well dreamweaver seems to work fine..
    just a few errors in the coding for example ..

    i) dw doesn't declare the doc type, as stated by w3c guidelines.
    for example, this should be the first line of any html page so that browsers can recognize the html language version and character encoding --> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

    ii) some javascript behaviors don't follow set guideline
    for example dw uses the "#" sign to create a false link to enable some javascripts.

    i haven't tried any other WYSIWYG editors but the major ones would be FrontPage from M$, Homesite from Homestead and GoLive from Adobe, so i can't give any comments about them. any comments from users?

    if you need help for standards compliant html coding... chk out http://www.w3.org/People/Raggett/tidy/ and http://validator.w3.org/

    That's bad

    refering to
    http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/objects.html#h-13.2
    -------8<--------
    <!ATTLIST IMG
    %attrs; -- %coreattrs, %i18n, %events --
    src %URI; #REQUIRED -- URI of image to embed --
    alt %Text; #REQUIRED -- short description --
    longdesc %URI; #IMPLIED -- link to long description

    -------8<--------
    the alt is "require" but not optional.

    and from here
    http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/objects.html#adef-alt

    -----8<-----------
    The alt attribute must be specified for the IMG and AREA elements. It is optional for the INPUT and APPLET elements.

    homesite

    I just use Macromedia/Allaire HomeSite for 100% confidence of compliance. Version 5 totally remove wysiwyg feature. You don't mention WYSIWYG! Otherwise, think Dreamweaver's fine.

    chk out dreamweaver MX for compliance overkill!

    all inserted images will be prompted for an alt tag.. u can also check your coding for compliance with mutiple html versions (XHTML strict included).

    just gets a bit tedious after a while having to deal with a pop up window prompting u for the alt tag.

    dwMX also has accessibility standards and options inbuilt and lots more..

    To validate your HTML, there is a cool tool, called HTML tidy ... although this prog stand alone is kinda a pain to use, a easy version comes with HTML-kit.

    HTML-kit is a pure code HTML editor, it is not WYSIWYG like DW. So its going to be slow to make pages ... if you really wan to make standard compliant XHTML for example, open you files in HTML-Kit and choose to validate your code, it will output very helpfull info, which line is not compliant which tag not properly ended etc ... super cool.

    The best thing is both HTML-KIT and HTML Tidy are FREE!

    Can check out HTML-kit here
    http://www.chami.com/html-kit/

    HTML Tidy can be found here
    http://www.w3.org/People/Raggett/tidy/

    An article on how to modify DW to produce valid XHTML
    http://www.alistapart.com/stories/dreamweaver/
    This article is a bit old ... is about DW4 have not tried doing it with DW MX, if you do let me know?

    All da best!

    Frankly I haven't come across a "standards-compliant HTML editor", although I am using Dreamweaver + Notepad. I think such things haven't been invented yet But anyway, using Dreamweaver in conjunction with Notepad is the closest to a "standards-compliant" HTML editor thus far

    Mind you, if you are using windows - stick to Notepad or EditPlus 2 You'll end up much better at design and development by the end of it.
