I use the simple *FREE* Notepad program that comes with Windows to create and edit my webpages. I have been programming for over twenty years but even when I started my first webpage I used Microsoft Word to create the basic HTML and then cleaned up the code and edited it by hand as I learned HTML. Most of the Microsoft programs that you can create pages with do a nice job but they produce messy code which doesn't always work the way it should on some non-Microsoft browsers but are extremely easy to start with and most people are already familiar with using them.
