get ASP.net WebMatrix (think it's at www.asp.net)

else maybe try Visual Web Developper 2005 beta1 from

note that in VS.net you can work at the HTML instead of the design mode of
ASP.net and sometimes if you want to have clean HTML code in your ASPX pages
you may want to work in the HTML. Right click the .aspx file you want in the
solution explorer and select "Open With" to open with HTML editor (select
"automatic encoding" there) instead of the ASP.net webform designer. Can
also set that action (or other custom one you wish - say open in Notepad or
whereever) to be the default one when you double-click such a file in the
solution explorer
