If you're not married to point-and-click/WYSIWYG HTML authoring, I've  
recently become a pretty big fan of Coda, another product from the  
makers of Transmit:

I pretty slick editor, with well-thought-out bells and whistles.  Nice  
preview mode via WebKit.  Built-in FTP/SFTP/WebDAV works fine.   
Integrates nicely with subversion.  Nice CSS editing facilities...  
Overall pretty nice.  I ponied up my $99 recently after using  
TextWrangler/CyberDuck or emacs for years and years.

For a stand-alone FTP client, Transmit seems to be the gold standard.   
I've never used it, myself, instead relying on the free, and adequate,  
CyberDuck: http://cyberduck.ch/

For someone young, it's probably not a bad idea to encourage writing  
markup by hand.
