what is the best WYSIWYG html editor?

I know, it's an obnoxious question, but I like to edit HTML both by hand
(e.g. with emacs) and with a WYSIWYG tool.

The problem I keep running into is that the WYSIWYG tool will rewrite the
HTML in ugly and stupid ways. For example:

            size="4" face="times, times new roman">hotbot</font></a><font
            size="4" face="times, times new roman"> </font><a

            size="4" face="times, times new roman">altavista</font></a><font
            size="4" face="times, times new roman"> </font><a
            href="http://www.google.com/"><font size="4"
            face="times, times new
            size="4" face="times, times new roman"> </font><a
            href="http://www.findsame.com"><font color="#00FFFF"
            size="4" face="times, times new roman">findsame</font></a><font
            size="4" face="times, times new roman"> </font><a

            size="4" face="times, times new roman">excite</font></a><font
            size="4" face="times, times new roman"> </font><a

I mean, how many times do you have to specify the same font?

P.S. Bonus points for a tool that can clean up the above code.
