You should avoid FrontPage completely. It messes up your html/IC code

I use Allaire Home Site. It has a perfect ftp-client that works like
browsing your own HDD and editing files directly from there. It has an
inbuilt browser (some sort of IE) that can map the pages trough the
IC-server. You just jump between edit and browse-mode. You have just to
remember to set the file saving mode to Unix...!

Other people prefer Dream Weaver (if I got it right, Akopia is building some
sort of IC module/plugin for dream weaver)...
