    My history in writing pages stretches from notepad to Derekware to EditPlus,
    which is what I use now. However, as much as I like EditPlus, I was just
    wondering if anybody else could recommend something like EditPlus, but with
    some extra features perhaps.

    i looove edit plus. its the only editor i've come across that integrates
    the local server[1] which saves fiddling around.

    [1] haven't looked too hard, just scanned feature lists to see if its
    mentioned.

    When editplus lacks features, I think it is time to mention Emacs. It is
    not similar to editplus, but it has features. And if there isn't some
    feature, it is possible to add the feature. Emacs takes time to learn.
    IMHO it is worth the time.

    It is also platform independent, so in future when you change OS to
    something reliable, you don't need to change editor.

    It is also free.

    http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/

    It doesn't have featurelist - you find its features using google or
    manuals or usenet. Of course it is small change that feature doesn't
    exist.

    I really like NoteTabPro. Notetab.com - its like $10 to register and has
    a ton of features, without being too clunky.

    Having never used EditPlus, I don't really know what to compare it to,
    but my editor of choice on Windows is HTML-Kit -

    IMO, HtmlKit is by far the best, but I still occasionally use NoteTab
    pro. Not free, but only $19 and worth every penny. It has a great disk
    search and replace function.

    What are some features you like about HTML Kit?

    Specifically, I want the ability to save tags. AFAIK, I can't do that in
    EditPlus. I'd like to be able to set buttons for tags I type repeatedly,
    like <BR>

    HTML-Kit has a lot of add-ons you can install that do just about
    anything you can think of wanting to do (and a few more). :)
    Personally, I particularly like its autocomplete (see below), and the
    fact that it is *so* customisable.

    Not sure what you mean by buttons, but it has buttons on the toolbars
    for most HTML tags.

    It also has an "autocomplete" feature, so e.g. if you type "<img "
    (without the quotes, obviously), it can automatically stick "<img src=''
    width='' height='' alt=''>", and place the cursor wherever in that you
    want.

    There are many plug-ins for HtmlKit that can be customized to suit your
    tastes. I'm not sure what you mean by buttons, but I have a right-click
    plugin that can automatically insert common tags such as <p></p>, <br>,
    etc around selected text. Huge timesaver.

    Try it, it's free!

    Buttons suck, you have to take your hands off the keyboard and grab the
    mouse to use them. Keyboard shortcuts are the way to go. I apply markup
    by selecting the content (using the keyboard) followed by hitting a
    keyboard shortcut the markup is then wrapped around it (or inserted if
    the element is empty). External content like images are dragged and
    dropped from a file manager side panel, path, width and height are
    automatically inserted.

    I should have been more specific. With the first program I ever use -
    Derekware - I could create toolbar buttons of common tags (like when I
    needed to make a tab or a break) and I could just happily click on it
    instead of having to re-type or copy/paste. It was a MONUMENTAL time saver.

    I will have to check out this program you speak of

    Despite 15 years of using a mouse, first mouse-capable box being an Amiga, I
    have never embraced the keyboard shortcuts. I should learn, but I think it
    is too late

    As great as that looks, I can't use any of those special keyboards because
    despite using computers for so many years, I still type like a newbie
    (albeit, a fast-as-hell) newbie by using my index fingers for 90% of my
    keystrokes. About the only time my index fingers don't do something is my
    thumb hitting space and my ring finger hitting shift or ctrl

    I should learn how to type properly.

    Me too.

    When I was in high school, when was that? Oh, I remember. Before the last
    time the Red Sox were in the World Series, which we just WON!!!
    WOO-HOO!!!!!

    Oh, sorry. Anyway, the typing teacher came into the computer room
    (outfitted with state-of-the-art Atari 800's!!) and saw me hacking away at
    the keyboard. I asked her if I should take typing class. She said, "No,
    don't bother. Unless you want to be a secretary, you're doing fine as it
    is."

    I found that funny at the time. I tried the Mavis Beacon typing tutor,
    doing it the right way i couldn't get out of level one. Doing it my way, I
    go 30 wpm.

    Only 30?

    Do it the right way and you can easily do 90. I do about that. It's as fast
    as most people speak. The most important thing though is that you will
    rarely need to look at the keyboard.
