I currently use Dreamweaver MX and was thinking about trying something new since I can't get it to produce pages that look the way I want on Firefox browsers.

Any suggestions for good web authoring software?

nVu is meant to produce decent code.

My preference would be to ignore WYSIWYG software and learn to write the code from scratch. Dreamweaver will run perfectly happily in code mode and do auto-completion, syntax highlighting, etc..

I agree, getting to know the page at code level is the best way to understand what is happening. A nice text editor (I use NoteTab) will generate the tags for you.

i've used DW for quite a few years, and i can't think of that many things that it can't do -> you may have to write specific code for FF! browsers parse html differently.

IS your code W3C compliant?

Try Amaya ( [w3.org...] ), W3C's WYSIWYG HTML editor & browser combo. Doesn't have all the rich features as Dreamweaver but its Free/OpenSource.
