Other FAQs -:- HTML Basics
- What are some good HTML editors?
- What is everyone using to write HTML?
Robin Y Millette uses these for a few formats, including HTML and XML:-
- http://www.editplus.com/ - EditPlus
- http://vim.sf.net/ - VIm (improved vi, works on a bunch of platforms, including linux and windows)
- http://xsh.sf.net/ - XSH (this one is specifically for XML. In fact, it's not as much an editor as it's a shell. That's right!) (Isofarro says: WOW! This XML shell looks absolutely awesome! Thanks for the tip.)
Sir Phil of Hayz recommends these editors:-

Mark Gallagher would like to add :-
- Notepad, available (on most Windows computers) at C:\WINDOWS\notepad.exe. If you can write a decent webpage in Notepad, you can probably do it in anything (except perhaps FrontPage). Mac users tend to like - nay, love BB Edit (I wouldn't know, I don't use Macs), and Linux users are pretty evenly divided between vi and Emacs users, with the occasional sissy Pico user around the place somewhere. Personally, I use vi - or rather, [VI iMproved] - and spit upon all the evil heathens who would dare use Emacs. Not that I, er, engage in any immature holy wars or anything... *cough*
Brucie suggests, for a WYSIWYG-ish editor...
Amit Patel says...
- http://www.xemacs.org/ -- XEmacs with PSGML mode (syntax highlighting, structural editing and movement commands, validation, context-sensitive menus for attributes and elements, understanding of DTDs, showing context ("start-tag in DIV in BODY in HTML" for example), hide/show elements, tag name completion, list valid tags incurrent context, key to close last open tag). Windows/Unix/Mac. Free (GPL).
Dennis TT says...
- http://www.acehtml.com -- AceHTML from Visicom Media. Good for any type of user that likes source code editing and MS Office type toolbars.
- [Eclipse] -- Emacs in Java (no need for the missing operating system). Its an extensible/pluggable framework, excellent for web application development and multi-skilled people (polyglots?)
- Nothing compares to [TextPad] though.
- And somebody has left out [WikiWriter]
