What WYSIWYG Editor for Mac?

I've been using Expression web on a PC but I'm now migrating to a Mac. What editor will take my Expression Web built sites and not mess them up?

My money would be on Dreamweaver CC

You can get a 30 free trial, which should allow you to allay any compatibility fears.

I looked at the Dreamweaver trial. It wasn't clear how to import a site. I know everyone says Dreamweaver has a steep learning curve but I'd have thought there would be an easy explanation for how to move away from Expression web.

Then I looked at the costs. You have to hire dreamweaver via Creative Cloud at about £20 a month. I've decided to keep my windows PC for website work. Hopefully, reducing its use for other things will keep it healthy longer.

Unfortunately, there's a very small number of WYSIWYG web editors for MacOSX and fewer still that can import an existing site for editing.

However, try SeaMonkey. It contains "Composer" that is able to open existing page files and lets you edit them. install it, launch it and click on "Window". Select "Composer" and a new window will open.

Click on "Open" and navigate to an existing html file that you want to edit.

It's nowhere near as comprehensive as Dreamweaver but it might just do the job!

I don't know what happened there. It should say "Install it", "launch it"...

It does now. I edited your post to correct the link.

Is Bootcamp on your new Mac completely out of the question? This is probably a stupid suggestion.
