Best Basic HTML Editor/Web Design Software?

Hi, I’m looking for recommendations for a relatively basic HTML
editor/web design software that also assists in coordinating FTP
stuff. I’m in the process of starting my own domain, mainly to host
my own photography and writing, so nothing overly complex.

Historically I’ve used FrontPage for my web designing, but I find it
frustrating to use, even on a basic level, and would like other
recommendations. I don’t mind paying for quality as far as software
goes, but am also, of course, open-minded to anything free. Thanks in
advance for any assistance!


Also, separately, if anyone can recommend an easy, free FTP program
that would be appreciated, as well.
