HTML editor..

hi,

I'm getting sick and tired of all the problems I've been having
w/HomeSite, it crashes all the time, I get these weird errors with
code-nos. on them, etc.. it's just not very stable.. my Manager just
gave me a copy we have here of HS 5.5, same thing, I get same errors as
with previous version..

I was wondering, is there a free HTML editor out there similar to HS? I
know there must be a lot of them out there, I just want to find one
that's similar to HS (do NOT want a WYSIWYG one..) I use HS for
everything, HTML, css, java, you name it.. and would like to continue to
do so.. am interested mostly in the color-coding (yes, spoiled in that
regard, oh well, it makes it easier to debug..) the syntax-check, being
able to drag images so it creates img-tag, etc..

thank you...

Can't say how similar Komposer is, but it is oft recommended.

Oh:
(do NOT want a WYSIWYG one..)
Have a look at Crimson Editor then? No WYSIWYDG here:

You might like HTML-Kit. It has syntax highlighting, no WYSIWYG (but
there's a WYSIWYG table plugin for that), integrates with TopStyle, has
HTML-Tidy built in, FTP, code completion (or your can turn it off),
create/save your own snippets, create/save your own templates. One of
the best things about it is there are hundreds of user created plugins
available to make your work easier - and you can create/share your own
plugins.

There are two versions, the free one, and the paid one. I like the free
one better because I've been using it for several years, and use a lot
of plugins with it. The newer version doesn't understand/can't import
the old plugins, so I'm staying with the older version - until they can
figure out how to import all my old plugins.

WeBuilder is similar to HomeSite, not freeware but it does have a trial.
Not a memory hog like Homesite is nor as expensive.

The ultimate non-WYSIWYG editor is, of course, Wordpad. Using it,
however, requires that you actually know HTML, CSS, etc.

Have you looked at Nvu at <http://www.nvu.com/>? It has both WYSIWYG
and non-WYSIWYG capabilities. It's freeware.

FYI there are much better plain text editors out there, with features
like syntax highlighting, extended search/replace, macros, etc. Wordpad
might be OK in a pinch, but I think it would be painful to use more than
that. You're not a masochist, are you? :)

You can be more productive with a better editor. Many are free, too,
like Crimson Editor.

That's true for any plain text editor.

WeBuilder is similar to HomeSite
This gets my vote, too.

You mean there is no emacs elisp module for HTML writing....? : }

and non-WYSIWYG capabilities. It's freeware.
kompozer is the bugfix release of Nvu but runs on fewer platforms.
FWIW Seamonkey pretty much has Nvu built in.
yes there is a non-WYSIWYG tab for both but what you write may be
"corrected"
the instant you leave that tab to review what youve written.. : /
But you can "tidy" up once you are done

Yes, there is, and the version in emacs 22.1 is greatly improved
over older versions.
