I almost got used to version 5 of Beerwin's Plain HTML. With the current beta version of PlainHTML 7, it isn't so "plain" anymore. It is no longer just a hardcoder's HTML editor. Right now, it has surpassed a lot of free HTML editors available on the web today. To be specific: PlainHTML 7 now has a WYSIWYG feature that puts it above a lot of commercial and free WebDesign Suites.
Shown above is a screenshot of PlainHTML 7.0 in Designer Mode (WYSIWYG) and connected to an FTP server. Add to this the different external tools that Beerwin ships with this IDE and what do you get? A complete web workshop!
Below is a screenshot of PlainHTML 7.0 in Code Editor mode. Apart from the Toolbars that one sees also in top rated HTML editors, there are three features that I really like: the Tag Inspector, TIDY, and the Clipbook.
Notice that unlike other WYSIWYG editors available on the web now, PlainHTML 7 maintains an HTML code that is nice to look at and consistent with the default "XHTML 1.0 Strict" DocType it creates for each page you create. Now that is a great plus if one would like to have one's pages validated by the Consortium.

Looks good. But why is the download package so large?
