Cheaper alternatives to GoLive?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I need a cheap as possible webpage editor. GoLive is great, but I can't afford the ridiculously expensive price - I would hardly be using it, as it is only for editing my low traffic shareware program web page.

Other than buying a secondhand copy of GoLive 6.0, what else can I get for under £50?!

    ... and if someone would like to sell a legal copy of GoLive 6.0, I'd be happy to hear!

    TextWrangler and SubEthaEdit are free. If you're saavy enough to be writing shareware programs, why not just edit the code directly?

    Thanks for the comments. I tried out Freeway Express, but since first impressions are important, and it crashes every time I try to open an existing file, I didn't get on hugely well with it. Sure it is a great app, but I couldn't get on with it initially. I suppose I should try just HTML editing, and stop being lazy. Quite like the look of Text Wrangler, so I'll give that a whirl. Writing HTML code is a bit fiddly, but since I can start off by editing existing pages, I'll just have to learn as I go, and live with my pages not looking as flashy as they would in GoLive. Thanks to both of you for the help.

    If you used the student discount, you could get Dreamweaver for 100. As far as I know, Dreamweaver is the undustry standard for web development. I tried out both GoLive and Dreamweaver, and I liked Dreamweaver a lot better.

    Unfortunately I don't think I could get a student discount as I would be using it for a shareware website, ie commercial use, even though I am a student. \
