Any Good Freeware HTML Editors Out There

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Mike McCollister, Feb 20, 2006.

  1. I have been using FrontPage for a while now and was wanting to see what else
    is out there in terms of freeware editors. Any recommendations?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Why? Nvu is probably the best of the so-called WYSIWYG editors, so if
    you are going for a WYSIWYG, Nvu is the way to go.

    I don't think Mr. Mullen was disrespecting nvu but was adding it to the
    list ;-) Could be wrong though.

    Could be. He didn't place his reply very well if that's the case.

    Initially I thought he was adding to list. Then after this comment I took
    another look, and I see what you mean.

    Its all about location location location.

    Sorry for the confusion. Indeed, I was suggesting Nvu as a /good/
    WYSIWYG editor.

    May I suggest notepad.

    Its fast and on most computers...

    ;-)

    I think the only things I'd like for my editor, would be syntax
    highlighting such as mozilla firefoxs view source option provides, and
    insertation of doctypes. No frills. I'm a tough guy! ;-)

  12. I would actually use gvim over notepad.

    :)

    The current version of Quanta (Linux) seems to have a bug that causes it
    to freeze. Maybe the next update will fix that.

    For Linux there is also Kate and Bluefish

    Have fun

    I'm using 3.5.1

    What version has the bug? I generally have mine up for weeks on end with
    no freeze ups.
