What program would you recommend that can create bitmap files or whatever of tilesets with the same limitations, palette, etc. as the NES has? I'm wanting to keep my game faithful to the limits of the NES since it's in that format.

I use GIMP to make tilesets in indexed mode with four colors. Then you can use a nametable editor such as NESst or 8name II to prototype how they would look on an NES screen.
