Any recommendations for a good text editor to build your web site?

The most powerful text editor I know of is EditPlus. http://www.editplus.com/

Hrm, Vi Or EMACS, but I prefer Vi :P

I'm going to assume you are using Windows. If you just want an editor, use WordPad. It's already on your computer.

Is there something special you are looking for? An HTML editor?

Yes, I am looking for advice on a HTML editor. I do have windows and I understand wordpad works fine. But, I have also heard some of these others have lots of bells and whistles that make it easier. What do ya think?

EditPlus highlights syntax in various colours which makes it an ideal HTML editor.

Well, that all depends on how much you want to pay and what you want to do, really.

I've been using HotDog since it was first released in 1995 -- I was a beta tester for them. I've got a lot of loyalty there. They have a lot of new stuff in their latest release, 6, which I don't have as yet. It's on my Christmas list :P

URL is:

<A HREF="http://www.sausage.com/">http://www.sausage.com/</A>

I just recently checked out a product called AceHTML 4, which has some DHTML and JavaScript stuff built in. It also has templates you can use to do a basic design. It's rather nice and there is a shareware version you can try before you decide to buy.
The URL is:
<A HREF="http://www.visicommedia.com/">http://www.visicommedia.com/</A>

Those are about the only two I can recommend. There are hundreds of HTML editors out there.

If you want to try out a lot of shareware stuff or demos, you might want to check out <A HREF="http://www.softseek.com">Softseek.com</A>. It's operated by ZDNet and has a ton of shareware, freeware and demo software for downloading.

Hope this helps!

I found one that is free and has all the bells and whistles. It does WYSIWYG too, similiar to Frontpage 2000 by MS.

This one is 1stpage 2000 by Evrsoft if you want to try it out. I think its kind of neat, but I don't have time to mess with it much so I use Publisher 97.

Here's the website if you want to take a look at the editor. www.Ervsoft.com (http://www.Ervsoft.com)
I do wonder if they ever have any copyright problems??? Very similiar to Frontpage.

Go here to download http://www.evrsoft.com/download/
