I've received quite a few emails asking me about text editors that can do HTML. So, here is a roundup of some of the best text editors around. -- Doc
The Boxer Text Editor, by Boxer Software is an award-winning text and HTML editor that's simply loaded with great features. I love the fact that it has so many configurable options. You can truly make it your own by altering the colors, the way it acts, the keyboard layout, fonts, and lots more. The program is easy-to- use and has an intuitive interface, perfect for both new and experienced users. The Boxer Text Editor has excellent features for anyone who needs to write HTML coding as well. It has color syntax highlighting so you can easily see what you're doing when you're writing HTML, Perl, and more. The Boxer Text Editor also has templates which you can use for a wide range of things. I have a whole set that I use for inserting HTML codes that I use when writing Picks. The program also has a very cool spell checker and what I like is that it will actually skip over any HTML code. Boxer Text Editor has all the little extras that make it a joy to use. Thing like a calculator, auto-complete, calendar, HTML color chart, ANSI chart, macros, and "User Lists" that include things like a collection HTML tags. The Boxer Text Editor has all the features anyone could need and a lot of features that most people don't expect. A macro language, easy macro recording, and HTML color chart, the ability to edit files up to 2 gigabytes in size, column blocks, and the ability to edit files via FTP. How cool is that? Very! If you're looking for a full-featured editor for doing text, HTML, or programming, then this is your solution. Give it a try, I recommend it.
System Requirements: Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP/Vista
UltraEdit-32, by IDM Computer Solutions, Inc. is another full-featured editor that's also loaded with plenty of options. Right off the bat it has support for multiple languages including French, Italian, German, Swedish, Dutch, and more. Like Boxer, UltraEdit-32 has been around for a long time and over the years it's just gotten better and better. There are so many great features that I can't begin to tell you about all of them, but I'll hit some of the high points. If you're looking for something to do basic editing, it's perfect. At the same time, if you need a powerful text editor it fills that bill perfectly as well. UltraEdit will let you edit multiple files and it can handle files up to 4 gigabytes in size. Wow. It has syntax highlighting and comes already configured for HTML, C++, and more. A really cool feature is that it has a built-in FTP client so you can edit files and then upload them to your FTP site. Other features include column editing, keyboard configuration, and HEX editing. The HEX support shows you both the binary and the ASCII view, making it easier to edit. UltraEdit-32 is another award-winning editor that's both intuitive and easy-to-use, perfect for users with all levels of experience. You can configure toolbars, keyboard, and plenty more. If you looking for a text editor that can handle any situation, this may be what you need. Check it out, I recommend it.
System Requirements: Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP/Vista
NoteTab Pro, by Fookes Software is another award-winning text and HTML editor that has plenty of power under-the-hood. It's perfect for editing text or HTML code and here again it's loaded with cool features. NoteTab Pro gives you all the tools you need to do a great job. It can load large files, do HTML code, spell check what you write, gives you a thesaurus to find new words, and more. You can create bookmarks, change cases, create powerful "clips", and its "tabbed" interface lets you have multiple documents open at one time. Clips are a powerful tool that you can use to do all kinds of things. Fortunately, NoteTab Pro comes with some great collections of clips that you can use right out of the starting gate. I've also found that looking at how other clips work is a good way to learn some tricks for creating your own. The program comes with its own scripting language that's very powerful and you use this to create your own clips. NoteTab Pro has a powerful search function, lots of configurability, a multilingual spell checker, a thesaurus, and plenty more. This is another program that you really need to try for yourself. I recommend it.
