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.

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.
