New computer, new software

Well, I'm delighted with it so far - a Dell Dimension 8150, and I've been putting lots of CDs on it, and installing old and new software. Thanks for all your advice.

But I've been hit by an unexpected snag: what software to use for maintaining my websites? It's a good five years since I seriously considered this question. I have been happily using Arachnphilia 4.0 for HTML mark-up, and an old version of WS_FTP for file transfer, but both seem to have been deprecated by their respective authors and you have to pay for the new ones (and I didn't like tha later version of Arachnophilia I tried anyway). And I suppose there are probably better programs out there, if I could be bothered to look.

Any recommendations for a good HTML and FTP program, preferably free but if it's really really good I am prepared to pay?

Edited to add: Well, a consensus rapidly developed (thanks, qatsi, sugarimp and dougs) around Filezilla for FTP, and I've tried it and it works very well. Any thoughts about HTML editors? sugarimp offers Stone's Webwriter - any views?
