Can You Recommend a Good HTML Editor

15 replies
I am looking for an inexpensive, or free HTML Editor to replace Nvu. I have used Nvu for several years and like it, but it has become "quirky" and isn't being supported any more. I know some basic HTML but not enough to hard code a site. I need something with a WYSIWYG interface that is relatively simple and intuitive to use. I just need something to create 1 and 2 page mini-sites. I've looked at KompoZer and CoffeeCup, but would really appreciate knowing what you use and why you like it.

Many thanks!

    Dreamweaver CS4, the best hands down.

    I use Kompozer. It works well for me and I definitely like it better than NVU AND Dreamweaver which I both have.

  • I don't have any "specific" recommendations, but if you go to Download.com, they have a lot of different web design tools you can download that have fully functional free trials.

    Dreamweaver gets my vote. It has everything you could possibly need.

    I use Dreamweaver constantly, but if its not in your budget, CoffeeCup's isn't too bad. Customer support is really good there - always has been, and they've been around for internet eons!

      I would recommend dreamweaver, but it has a steep learning curve and it is not cheap.

      Since you are asking for a cheap or free html editor I would second what Leslie says which is Trellian webpage. It's a pretty good html editor and it's free.

    If you're going the free route I found the one from CoffeeCup to be pretty good. Good interface, good support.

    I also used to use one called PageBreeze which was quite good to work with as well.

    I was in love with KompoZer until last week when I found the Trellian WebPage editor mentioned by other warriors. Webpage is super easy to use and it's eaiser to manipulate images with the "float" option. I'm not a designer and am teaching myself to work with CSS templates, cutting and pasting. Dreamweaver is something to aspire to but for now this works great.

    Dreamweaver is great for a paid product solution, for sure! I also think that as a free download, open office is a great tool that lets you alter you pages in a similar format to word document, very user friendly for the beginner!

    I use html kit (free) which is a great basic html editor for anyone who has a basic knowledge of html. So ideal for editing pages/templates or doing minisites.
    HTML Kit for more than editing HTML

    Another alternative option to consider is wordpress:
    Main Page WordPress Codex

    Dreamweaver CS4 has some really cool new features, it really improves on an already great product. Adobe software is king. I saw someone say it has a steep learning curve...I'd have to personally disagree with that. I feel like it's pretty straightforward and easy to figure out. I just bought a book when I was learning years ago, but there's tons of video tutorials out there too that would probably be even better.
