Does HTML-Kit have any documentation yet? It seemed like a beautiful little package that would be really nice to use if they only provided a 2-page cheat-sheet defining the basics. The developer is curiously uncommunicative about how to use it.
I've just migrated to a new machine and dumped my old installation, and I'm now thinking about utilities to download, so I'm wondering whether I should grab it again.
I like NoteTab Pro a lot. It's a general purpose text editor that has a lot of html functionality incorporated, and it's probably the singlemost used program I have.
Now that I have XP, I'm also considering checking out the latest version of Homesite. In its earlier versions, it was a wonderfully solid html editor, but when Allaire took it over and rebuilt it, it became an absolute resource hog on 9x systems. Now it's under the MacroMedia umbrella. Anyone have experience with it on XP?
I don't use any plugins except spell checker.
I hate what HTML tidy did to my code.
But the quick preview screen is what places it far above notepad or word. Just hit the tab to see how it looks.
I used to use one called edit-revolution and really liked it but I lost it in a crash and it doesn't seem to be available anymore.
I use MultiEdit to edit my html - it is not free but does have built in html code support and FTP, plus a lot of stuff that I don't use. I have used MultiEdit for many years of xBase, C, C++, Perl (cgi) and other general editing.
To get into really serious programming I would recomend investing in a full featured editor - there are lots out there - choose the one that make sense to you - there are lots of free trials.
The Tidy implementation isn't worth the download - download the HTML Validator extension for Firefox instead and you'll be completely set (if you load your pages into Firefox, which is, granted, another step).
I give my thumb up on Crimson too.
