    Hi,

    As a bit of fun I would like to have a play with some HTML. Can anyone recommend a good editor for Windows. Can you use products like Frontpage and Dreamweaver to create HTML text manually?

    You can use any text editor to write html including notepad. I've used a variety of text editors on Windows including Cream and Arachnophilia. Some text editors have templates that help out with writing html but if you are just looking for a bit of fun, open notepad, play around with some basic html, save it as "document_name.html" then open it up in a browser. :)

    Gav, if he's just playing around with a little html, Dreamweaver would be a heck of an expense, wouldn't it? :blink

    Agreed for sure, Trip - just a little response in jest to Boyce's answer to my opening question in THIS THREAD :biggrin

    I'm with you Trip - if it's out and out dirty html you want, Boycey - go notepad :)

    If dreamweaver is too expensive try Nvu for a free program.

    If you're just editing html then good old notepad will do the job!

    I don't know if Quanta is available in Windows or not, but in my playing with perl, python, php, and a couple of other scripting languages I've found I really like it. I've never used it for html, but I know it does work with it.

    Personally i'd go for notepad too.

    It's what makes a man, the master of his markup,
    also, most GUI HTML editors don't update often enough
    to keep up with the w3c validation standards.
