The best choice in building a website is to learn HTML if you don't know it and just use any text editor that you prefer.
Frontpage I hate to say just sucks, it puts garbage in there that isn't compliant and just takes up space.

I like Quanta + for html editing. Gimp for photo manipulation and graphics (buttons, banners, etc).
