any tips on a nice html editor that has both text-mode and screen-mode
if you know one that works on a mac, then better but otherwise please tell me your experience with Windows based ones.
I second the Amaya suggestion. It's a very powerful tool and not exactly hard to use at all.
I also use dreamweaver, for html, xhtml development it really the best. loads for extensions available via adobe.com. that is aside from the fact that it is really a power pack software for simple web authoring...
I'll be waiting for the next version of it CS4 maybe... I'm hoping it will be integrated well with other adobe software especially Photoshop.
I use 2HTML Editor . It can display web page sample in the same window without saving the web page- just like frontpage but only 2 MB, very less compared to Frontpage
I would also vote for NVU.
Kompozer is a decent WYSIWYG editor if you want one.
I use Notepad++ for all the HTML editing, Its free and open source and pretty good as well.
