Free Editor that Supports Templates?

Hi,

I'm doing some research for an article and I was wondering if anyone knows of a free editor that supports templates...basically like Dreamweaver or FP, but free.

I know MS used to have a FP lite (or something like that), but can't seem to find it any more.

What I need is an editor that supports the types of templates that are so prevalent online at free/subscription/pay-per-template sites.

Thanks!

Jenny

Its called "FrontPage Express" - There are hundreds of non-Microsoft sites that you can download this for free. You can also find it on the official Internet Explorer 4.01 CD. Are you looking for GUI only or are freeware text editors okay too?

Thanks for the info.

Yeah, I'm looking for GUI software. Basically something cheap you can use templates (like at TemplateMonster, APlus Templates, etc.) with.

The idea is quick & easy & affordable options for those who are new to the Internet.

One area as an introductory to newbie website creators, is the demo's. which most of the biggies do a 30 day period on.

However, if its free editors, these are usually code-centric, and are usually outside of the domain of newbie's (as in absolute beginners).

For reasonable quality wysiwyg's with template facilities, then i would recommend demo's for a cost effective, climpse at what wysiwyg's have to offer.

Hi Caine,

Yeah, I agree...I'm leaning toward recommending the eval versions of DW and FP.

I was just curious as to whether or not there were other programs out there that used templates that were readily available online.

Thanks for the info guys,

Jenny

You could try notetab lite, which is free and has loads of options, but its a pure text editor.

It really depends on what the article is for I guess. If it's a matter of teaching basic HTML with a suggested editor, then id use a text editor like this and set up some templates with it.
