    Which notepad replacement HTML editors do you use?

    Hi I'm looking for the best html text editor out there. Any reccomendations? Even if it isn't freeware I'll be willing to pay. Give me your opinions please, thank you.

    When I'm on a *nix machine, I simply use "vi". I'm old school like that. I've always used vi and I always will. People also speak highly of emacs, but I've never really used it.

    On a PC, I use nothing other than notepad so I can't really help with a replacement recommendation. Notepad works fine for me when it comes to HTML editing.

    Textpad is pretty good, numbers lines and whatnot but doesn't have too many features like some editors do. www.textpad.com

    Also 1st Page 2000. Good editor, but too many features for my liking. Nice to use, has coding snippets, numbered lines, and a lot more. www.evrsoft.com

    yeah thanks for replies,

    yeah the reason of why I wanted a notepad replacement was because I've seen certain editors that color tags different colours which would make it easier to read and find the tags I need.

    With notepad, it's all just black and white and get's a little boring and hard to read

    thank you,

    I use crimson editor.

    it's a great freeware editor that has color coding of program code in most any language you may be working in and built in FTP access.

    I love it.

    Get it at Tucows.

    Home Site highlights the different tags. I have that. It's pretty simple, and i tlets you switch over and view the site with the changes you've made.

    yeah the ability to flip to the html version would be handy to make sure what your doing isn't looking all too screwed up .

    Yeah, there's also a Design mode that you can edit text and stuff without all the html coding. it's very convenient, and easier to find text.

    ConTEXT is very good, imho. Clean iface, multiple highlight "filters," etc.
