    HTML editor?
    So what do you guys use to edit your HTML documents? While @ work I'm on a Win2k machine and use notepad. When I try to edit the page in AppleWorks I tend to destroy it. I know I'm doing something wrong here, I just can't figure it out... Well at the moment because I'm at the boozer (free Wi-fi!!!!). Anyway, any tips would be much appreciated.

    Try using TextEdit.. Im guessing Appleworks has it's own proprietory format and throws in a lot of extra characters. When using TextEdit make sure that you safe it in text format, not rtf. I use BBEdit.. best editor ever in my opinion

    I highly suggest SubEthaEdit if you're into hand coding. Otherwise Dreamweaver seems to be the standard.

    That looks interesting. I'll give that a go and see how I like it. So far I've been liking TextWrangler as far as hand-edited HTML goes. Anyone here use NVU? Impressions?

    For most basic HTML Editing I just Textedit in TEXT mode. Works great. Appleworks is saving with all kinds of Formatting commands thus messing it all up. I will have to check but it might have a text save and if so will work. That NVU looks interesting. Grabbing it now.
