Thanks to all those who replied.

I am using Notepad++ and WampServer. My hosting service is 
Apache/phpMyAdmin/MySQL and I decided it was best to use the same on my Windoze 
development system.

Right now I'm revising my site HTML (much of it is 15 yrs old!). Later it will 
be upgraded to use server-side scripts. Perhaps then I'll look at Django, 
Cherrpy; etc.
