    Free HTML editor wysiwyg

    Just found this one. From the point of view of a bit of a web authoring bungler, I've found it pretty good on first appearances:
    Free HTML editor wysiwyg - Alleycode HTML, Text, PHP editor , HTML tutorial and Free Download

    "Alleycode is a fast, sleek and highly productive award winning HTML editor with unique features. If you are new to HTML, Alleycode's great tutorial will walk you through your first coding steps...

    Re: Free HTML editor wysiwyg

    There are so, so many HTML editors. I took a quick look at the sample site generated by the Quick Start Tutorial. It uses tables for layout and doesn't include a DOCTYPE. Thus, I think it is sacrificing modern standards compliant design thinking for ease of use. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing in all cases, but should be kept in mind when making comparisons with other editors.

    Added: Disclaimer: Since my editor of choice is WordPad, I'm not really in much of a position to compare purpose-built HTML editors. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Thanks for the extra info. As I said, it seemed good for an HTML mug like me, where "modern"="these new CSS thingos". <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> But I can still appreciate what you're saying in terms of standards compliant design. Can you recommend anything similar along the lines you mention... and <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> (needless to say).

    Alan,

    If wysiwyg is not an absolute requirement but syntax editing is look at something like editor PSPad - freeware HTML editor, PHP editor, XHTML, JavaScript, ASP, Perl, C, HEX editor. You can easily see your web pages and still get the syntax editing.

    Alan,

    Just remembered the <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> Cycline3 Jesse6. I know a couple people that use it and like it. I've not used it personally so I can't vouch for it.

    On the Mozilla/Firefox Web Development Board, the most common recommendation is the open source program Nvu (http://www.nvu.com/). However, this could be just enthusiasm for open source products rather than a ruling on what is truly most productive. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Thanks Jefferson. Looks the ticket, from what their website says anyway.
