Ive been approached to make a website, I want to make it quite basic but without scimping out on the look of it...

I'd highly recommend using phpDesigner. It's an excellent IDE which also includes built-in HTML5, CSS3 and JS editors (and of course, PHP).

As for CSS templates, they're really not that hard to make. There are more than enough templates out there - both free and premium - but trying to find one that matches your needs can be rather tricky.

w3schools is an excellent place to learn about CSS if you need to look up on anything or don't know much about it.

I used eclipse to remote connect onto the server to edit my files. Didn't need no fancy wysiwyg editor.

Dunno, man. I've used Visual Studio and Web Expressions, but both are windows-only (You really should have windows somewhere, what with all the windows-only software out there...) and a bit expensive if you don't have an MSDNAA membership.

I've used a couple different versions of dreamweaver, hated them both with a passion.

Or, just set up a local instance of Apache and use a text editor with liberal application of the refresh button and google.

I use notepad++ for my coding. Really any text editor that can save in the appropriate format should do you though.

Which should be literally any text editor. If nothing else, you can rename the file. It's very helpful to have a webserver instance, either local or on the web that you can push your changes to immediately to see what it looks like.

I second notepad++ - light and easy to use, plus code hinting is helpful.

And I believe it also has a linux package, being so simple. I'd also recommend if it.

About the only design aid I use is an onscreen tape-measure. Generally I can imagine pretty much what I want on the screen and then I just code that into existence. If I want to tweak something, it'll be the placement of something or the color or the font - something small like that, which is just CSS or HTML anyway.

The bitch, for me, is when you have to edit other people's shitty code. Something like Opera, which will highlight the relevant sections for you when you render the page and click on it with the source viewer open, is incredibly useful in that regard. Especially when what you're dealing with is some monstrosity that the server has generated with a load of nested table elements and no comments....
