Google Web Fonts

Posted on July 12, 2012. Filed under: Fonts, Freeware/Shareware | Tags: , , , , |

Google Web Fonts are free for your website.

Google Web Fonts makes it quick and easy for everyone to use web fonts, including professional designers and developers. We believe that everyone should be able to bring quality typography to their web pages and applications.

Our goal is to create a directory of web fonts for the world to use. Our API service makes it easy to add Google Web Fonts to a website in seconds. The service runs on Google’s servers which are fast, reliable and tested. Google provides this service free of charge.

Open Source Fonts

All of the fonts are Open Source. This means that you are free to share your favorites with friends and colleagues. You can even customize them for your own use, or collaborate with the original designer to improve them. And you can use them in every way you want, privately or commercially — in print, on your computer, or in your websites.”

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. Microsoft Windows® 95 or later operating system, Microsoft Windows NT® Workstation operating system version 4.0 or later with Service Pack 3 or later, or Microsoft Windows NT® Server operating system version 4.0 or later with Service Pack 3 or later. Windows 2000, Windows Me and Windows XP are now supported.

PageBreeze has a free version of “an award-winning HTML Editor which has both visual (WYSIWYG) and HTML tag/source modes. PageBreeze Free HTML Editor’s design emphasizes simplicity and ease-of-use. You’ll find that you’ll be creating great looking websites almost instantly–with virtually no learning curve!

PageBreeze Free HTML Editor is a completely free download for personal use and will never expire.”

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.”

Aloha Editor – The HTML5 Editor

Posted on July 26, 2010. Filed under: Freeware/Shareware, programming, Web site creation | Tags: , , , , , , |

Aloha Editor is the freeware HTML5 Editor.

“Click and edit. This is all you need. If you start editing you do not need to reload the website with an old style rich text editor (RTE). – Just click and edit. Other editors need to reload the website or come with a popup. Both actions are enervating and take time. Time you better invest in crafting your text. While editing you want to see the results immediately without previews or reloads. With Aloha Editor you work on the final document. You see what you get – with every keystroke! Only Aloha Editor is “What you see is what you get” (WYSIWYG).”

“Insert the table with the size you want with just one click. It has never been easier to insert or edit tables on the web. You can use the “TAB” key to jump from one cell to the next. Hitting “TAB” in the last cell will add another row to your table.”

And more, in the newest version of HTML.
