Anyone suggest a free html editor similar to Dreamweaver but no cost involved. To install on the laptop as I do not wish to pay for another licence when I have a good editor on my main PC being dreamweaver mx.

Can't you install Dreamweaver on the laptop too? I have Dreamweaver MX, I installed it on my main machine and my laptop. Now I only use the laptop anyway.

You can install DW on your laptop as well as your PC assuming that you have a legal copy.

simonhere, it isn't free but it can be very low cost if you shop carefully at Ebay for an even newer version of Dreamweaver than MX. You just have to be careful about proper transfer of licensing in later versions than MX, and sometimes they're offered in a package together with Fireworks.

Hi,

maybe he's off working in a different time zone.

For future use, if a free html editor is needed, then I suggest Arachnophilia from Paul Lutus. I learned the basics here and then graduated to Dreamweaver:

Google NVU, It's an open source editor with similar features to DW.

Move on past NVu to KompoZer -- which is a bug-fixed, enhanced version of NVu.
I started with NVu, then moved on with KompoZer -- which supports a
number of addons to ease development.
