    Neither, they're both quite the wrong approach.

    HTML, by its core design, doesn't need complicated editors to work it.
    A programmer's text editor is the right level: powerful editing
    features like regex searches / replaces and also colour highlighting
    and tag closure, but not trying to get between the coder and the
    source code. I mostly use jEdit (free download) for just HTML or
    Eclipse (free download) when working with other languages.

    What you do need is knowledge. "Head First HTML" is the best tutorial
    book around or htmldog if you _must_ have a website instead. Lie &
    Bos' CSS book is a good follow up. After reading these, learn what
    "valid code" is, learn to use a validator (W3C online, or else Mark
    Geuery's HTML Validator plugin for Firefox) and start reading the
    source materials on the W3C website (_not_ w3cschools, which is
    rubbish).
