Open source or low cost alternative to dream weaver?

is there a way to get free or low cost open source alternatives to
dream weaver, that would still run on a windows box? I've got dreamweaver
at the office, but didn't bite the big one to buy it for my personal
machine.

The lowest cost way to get something exactly like Dreamweaver is to take a visit to http://astalavista.box.sk and search for Dreamweaver crack....

Best I've found so far is Nvu... but do I detect an implication, Flanders?

There is a list of HTML editors on this page, I believe some are shareware and such.
(or if you put a few of those software titles into a search, you may come up with other lists)
Also there is a tucows category.

[obvious] search for "wysiwyg html editors", otherwise you'll just get fancy text editors.[/obvious]

no implication, just wondering what you've done so I don't do it again. But it turns out I didn't help out at all, so never mind.

Doesn't the DW license permit use by one user at a time on multiple machines? I'd read the fine print, and if so, ask the employer for the license number to do a home install. (All web stuff is work-related, right? Enhancing your skills and experience...)

Dreamweaver probably registers itself using a hash of your machine's hardware configuration (I doubt it just uses your MAC address) and will prevent multiple registrations.
