Things like http://www.html-kit.com/ and http://www.evrsoft.com/1stpage
will happily let you edit JavaScript with syntax highlighting. To a
degree, they both have a run-time environment in terms of an in-browser
preview.

What do you want it to do?

I'm a beginner and would like to be able to spice up my web page written in
PHP using javascript. I was looking for a Visual JavaScript Studio but could
not find one.

Thanks

That's not what I mean. I want to know what you want the editor to do
for you. Do you want step-through, break points, debugging, ...?

Well, it really does not make sense to have the latter feature in editors
for ECMAScript implementations (e.g. NS JavaScript and M$ JScript). Most
of the objects and properties are not part of the core language but DOM
based, and every UA supports a different DOM. The rest depends on the
implementation and the implementation's version to a large degree.

Read the public specs instead when coding. With increasing experience, you
will need less lookup.

Nothing wrong with his newsreader, its more a problem of your perception
of how things should be done.

Before posting URL's, one should endeavor to ensure it doesn't return a
404 error.

Thanks for the link to a page about Outlook Express. Very useful
considering I haven't used OE to post to usenet for nearly 6 years.

Are you talking to me? If you are, check my post again and you'll see
that Gravity did its job correctly.

You're welcome.

Usenet is not an 1:1 medium. Please watch the quotation level
and tell Gravity not to write attribution novels either. Besides,
I do not call you hy**********@hotmail.com either, so please change
this, too.

No, since you quoted correctly in contrast to Useko's fullquote.

Please stop trying to impost "standards" which do not have general
Usenet acceptance. That which is in the FAQ is accepted here, as is
that which is cited by the FAQ, and the RFCs (and son-of-1036). That is
all.

We do not need the Fourth Reich here.
