    A good WYSIWYG editor for Mac to replace Dreamweaver?

    Hi there.


    A friend built my site for me in Dreamweaver on his PC, but now I have to update it myself on my Mac, and I can't afford Dreamweaver.

    So I am looking for a WYSIWYG editor for Mac that can replace Dreamweaver and let me update and maintain my site. It must be able to handle PHP pages and CSS. Can someone recommend the best program for this?

    I know about these free programs:
    - Aptana Studio
    - BlueGriffon
    - Komodo
    - KompoZer

    And these paid programs:
    - Adobe Contribute
    - Coda
    - Espresso
    - Flux
    - Sandvox

    And I'm assuming it's easiest to run a free server like MAMP or something?

    If anyone has any help or suggestions, I would love to hear your opinions. I need to update my website.

    I would also be willing to buy an older and cheaper version of Dreamweaver, but it would have to be delivered electronically, since I live in Bali.

    Thanks!

    There is one and only one WYSIWYG that is in any sense of the word "good", Amaya ( http://www.w3.org/Amaya/ ) The rest generate something that might, or might not, resemble HTML but it's not the real thing.

    A good WYSIWYG editor is an oxymoron.

    I don't care so much about the code it spits out, don't worry. When I say "good" I mean as in "easy to use" and "doesn't crash".
