I set Dreamweaver 8 to code view and use photoshop for design. I say it is definitely smart to get an IDE with syntax highlighting and autocomplete to help you be more productive. You don't have to use the WYSIWYG, just use the code view. I think it is funny when people think they are special for using notepad or similar for coding. Make your life easier, do you really want to type the doctype/head and other basic things everytime you want to write a new page? Get a good editor, I happen to like dreamweaver on windows and I've used Quanta Plus on Linux. Some people like bluefish for linux but I preferred quanta.
