HTML editor recommendations please?

By Smiegel ·
Hi guys,

Could any of you please recommend a good alternative to Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004? In my opinion, it is one of the best site editors around but way too pricey. It comes in at just under $700 here in Australia.

I know there are many editors out there but which ones are in the same league and which are *reasonably* priced?

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I have used TextPad for five years as a professor and site developer. It is a programmer's editor, well suported by the community of programmers with add ins. There is a free-ware trial download. See

TextPad is great!

Also, NoteTab works very well. Both are good organizing tools and implement snippets and code libraries intuitively. TextPad has better macro functionality and NotePad seems to integrate with other apps better.

Nvu is okay if you really want a WYSIWYG type editor. It's also free.

But if you're on OS X, skEdit and PageSpinner are the best options. Code highlighting, snippets, applescriptability, built-in FTP.

I use NoteTab and PageSpinner.

HTML-Kit is also a great choice. It give you the ability to plug in many function and programming languages(ASP, ASP.Net, Bash, ColdFusion, iHTML, JSP, Perl, PHP, SQL, SSI, VBScript)

I throughly enjoy using HTML kit. If you don't want all the bells and whistles, its free. It is the main editior I use for all of the web sites I design.

I prefer Dreamweaver, because it not only supports html but also dhtml, asp, php, jsp and db programming works. for low cost we can go for front page.
