    Quick Question about HTML editing
    I have a friend i'm helping edit his web site, and I want to open individual pages (friendpage.html), and alter the code. The issue is, when I open that file with either Text Edit, Word, or RapidWeaver, it opens the web page and displays it... when I want to look at the code.

    Can you tell me how to do this?

    Thanks for all the recent help I've gotten here at this site.

    Sounds like your editor(s) are stuck in DESIGN view. You need to tell them to use CODE view.

    TextWrangler is a great free code editor. It will never render the web page.

    I prefer Coda though.

    You need to open it in a program that will ignore the formatting.
    I prefer SubEthaEdit, but smultron is a free alternative:

    There are a bunch of others out there too...
