What is a good application for web development?

Question by ed_man118: What is a good application for web development?
I am designing a dynamic web site. I was thinking of trying to use dreamweaver to help me write the code. Will dreamweaver be good for writing code for php, javascript, and sql? Is there some other application that is more cost effective?

Be a man, and use Notepad.

No, but in all seriousness, it’s hard to find a program as capable as Dreamweaver.

You might also try Aptana Studio. It’s free, open source, and cross platform. If it works for you, it might just save you a few hundred bucks.
