    Opensource or cheaper alternative to Dreamweaver

    I'm looking for a cheaper alternative to Dreamweaver, what does everyone else use to teach web design in schools?

    I've found a nice alternative to photoshop called GIMP but dreamweaver has me stumped.

    For the Mac, Flux and RapidWeaver (with the Stacks add-on) are both really good alternatives to Dreamweaver.

    I've not used it to teach but personally I like NetObjectsFusion Download NOF page

    WYSIWYG editor that builds the HTML for you but you can edit it as HTML if you want to, or a mixture of the two.
    In terms of teaching/learning it might be quite powerful to create something using drag&drop technique and then be able to look at the HTML that is used to actually achieve what you did and match the two together.

    I've started trying to push Expression Web and Kompozer, although the uptake is slow. Kompozer obviously free, Expression Web available through Dreamspark (free through our EES Subscription)
