I want a new HTML / Web Dev. program!! Suggestions??
Just a disclaimer before I begin - I mean no offense to those of you who like Microsoft FrontPage for I have been a FrontPage user for years. However, I have grown tired and weary of Microsoft's, and thus by default, FrontPage's proprietary ways.
Put another way - I'm ready to migrate to a new Web Dev. program but I still need the WYSIWYG (HTLM creator / editor) focus or premise to the program but without the limitations that saddle FrontPage. I would consider myself a "lower midtier" Web developer - thus the dependence on a WYSIWYG / dynamic HTML creator program.
While I need for it to be robust, I also need / want what the whole world wants - NOT costing an arm and a leg - well maybe a leg, but I need both arms to continue designing.
Any suggestions? I hear Dreamweaver may be a step above my capabilities or in the very least more expensive than I want.
Look forward to hearing from you folks...

Well, Frontpage will produce code that is just as good (rather, just as bad) as anything else, including Dreamweaver. The only step that is a step up is to begin learning to write your own code. The HTML and CSS specifications are the definitive texts to read if you wish to learn; the article How to Read W3C Specs provided by A List Apart may help.
For you, I would suggest getting the latest Dreamweaver. I started with FP, soon grew tired of the proprietory codes, progressed to Dreamweaver. Do not think that DW is above your capabilities, you will learn as you develop/design. That is the best way to learn after all.
