problems with notepad programming

By hotrodgers ·
sometimes when I write some code (html)in Notepad and save and close the file, the file
changes, somtimes it doesn't. What I mean is that when I reopen the saved Notepad file
usually it is okay and I can continue writing and editing it, but once in a while the file
reopens and it has all kind of crazy scrambled code with capital letters mixed with lower
case and all the quotation marks missing, and all kinds of new code elements that I didn't
put there. Usually when this happens I cannot straighten the page out and have to throw
it away and start all over rewriting the file from scratch.

I don't really have a answer to your issue, but if you use notepad to write code or HTML I may have a recommendation for a better product to do the editing. I use UltraEdit as my text editor and it works great. It will color code comments, tags, variables, etc. to make the code easier to read. It even has an improved version of notepad.exe that replaces MS notepad as the default text file editor and seamlessly integrates into Windows.

You can download a free 45 day evaluation copy at www.ultraedit.com. Registration is only $35.

Again no real answer, but if you have MS office installed try MS Script editor. Open word, select Tools / Macro / MS Script Editor. This gives you an easy to use IDE.
