Check out Amaya:


The W3C's 'official' browser and editor, it's a WYSIWYG editor that
allows you to edit the source in the raw. (At the same time.) It's got a
bunch of really nice features that allow you bottom-up and top-down
access to your web page without getting everything mangled, and it goes
to a lot of effort to maintain your original formatting. It'll even edit
arbitrary XML if you give it the appropriate CSS, but it's not as smooth
doing that.

It's a little hung-up on semantics-vs-presentation which means that the
keyboard shortcuts for <I> are complicated and <EM> simple, but other
than that it's pretty good.
