Can you suggest a free web design tool?
I am a newbie to web design and development, and I am looking for some kind of tool that spits out html and css to get me started.
I am finding it very difficult to start from scratch, so yea I would use it for creating a basic template, which I can modify and add scripts to later.
A free, cross-platform (read Linux and Windows) software would be ideal.
Before you tell me to Google, I did it. :P There are tons of results, and I thought that I could narrow it down based on your experiences.

Word, WordPad, Publisher and even the infamous FrontPage, including many Microsoft web editors should NEVER be used for web pages. They guarantee that your web pages will NOT be cross-browser compatible because of all the Microsoft Schema code it adds. Only IE and Maxthon understand this code. Additionally, FrontPage requires server extensions be installed to work correctly. Also, OpenOffice is not a web editor.

Open Office will create basic html pages. Just do a file/save as and select the type as html before you create the document. You can then edit it with a normal text editor.
