HTML editors

Posted on February 14, 2011. Filed under: Freeware/Shareware, Web site creation | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

There are a number of ways to edit your HTML code to create web pages and sites, and many of them are free!

Evrsoft has 1st Page 2000 which is a powerful editor and comes in free and pay versions.

BoltBait (don’t ask me, I didn’t name it) was developed by the author “teaching HTML to a group of high school students and had a hard time finding a decent HTML editor for them. I wanted something better than Notepad, but not WYSIWYG (as my students would learn nothing from that!) I couldn’t find anything in my price range (free) so I developed it myself.
This is the smallest (64K) full-featured HTML editor you will ever find. It contains a preview window, help window, wizards, document templates, menus, and button bar. Download it now and you get the full program including source code! No spyware, no viruses, no gimmicks.”

Delete a stubborn page break in Word

Posted on February 1, 2010. Filed under: Help, Microsoft Word | Tags: , , , , , , |

TechRepublic has the answer on how to Delete a stubborn page break in Word.

“Here’s the problem: You can’t delete page (or column) breaks when Track Changes is enabled. As a writer, she frequently works with Track Changes on, and that was indeed the problem. If you need to delete a page break, you must turn off Track Changes, delete the break (make sure you’re in Normal view), and enable Track Changes when you’re done.”

Brixoft SourceEdit for web page editing plus

Posted on March 30, 2009. Filed under: Freeware/Shareware, programming, Web site creation | Tags: , , , , , , , |

Need a freeware web page editor that handles lots of programming languages too?

SourceEdit from Brixoft “is an editor especially made for developers but can of course be used as a regular text editor as well. It natively supports the following languages: ASP, PHP, Java, C/C++, C#, Visual Basic, Pascal, Perl, Cold Fusion, SQL, HTML, CSS, XML. Source Edit quickly and seamlessly colors all code written in any of these languages.”

Some features:

“supports recording of keyboard macros that can be saved as a keyboard shortcut (for example Ctrl+1) and to the toolbar. Source Edit can also repeat any command any number of times automatically.”

“an IntelliSense like code completion feature.”

“Quick and easy color mixer for web developers.”

“highly customizable. You can change or set keyboard shortcut to all commands available. You can change how code is colorized. You can also set the “file mapping”. By file mapping you associate different file types to different languages. So when you open or save a file with a *.cpp extention, for example, Source Edit will immediately use the C/C++ color coding. You are also able to change what files are shown in the Open and Save As dialog boxes.”

Less than perfect web pages?

Posted on March 4, 2008. Filed under: browsers, Microsoft Internet Explorer | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Let’s face it — not every web page programmer graduated at the top of the class….

Sometimes, you get those annoying messages from Internet Explorer, such as “A Runtime Error has occurred. Do you wish to Debug?” or “Internet Explorer Script Error. An error has occurred in the script on line 1. Do you wish to continue running scripts on this page?”

Internet Fixes has advice on why that might happen, and how to disable the warning in Internet Explorer if you still must see as much as possible on that page.

You may also be able to get past the problem by using another browser to view the page, such as Firefox.
