Im sure Im opening myself up to a few flames, but I use Microsoft Visual InterDev 6.0 Enterprise and love it as an editor. I dont use the design time controls or much of the built-in 'help me' tools, but the text coloring, ASP Intellisense, CSS, and preview features are great. I still write the code by hand, but its considerably easier to see everything for what its worth when HTML is one set of colors, and ASP is another, including highlighting function names and reserved words. It supports source control, allows me to have multiple sites open at once and makes for easy publishing across those sites. I dont know of any preview feature that will allow you to see ASP script (I dont even think its possible). Some developers dont like to be bothered with things like Intellisense or code coloring, but if you have a brain lapse or just plain ole forget something, they are great features. Hope this helps. --Salvatore Palmisano Chief Information Officer International Security Solutions, Inc. spalmisano at usaiss.com -----Original Message----- From: thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org]On Behalf Of Michele Foster Sent: Friday, February 02, 2001 6:20 PM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Editors .. Hi folks .. Currently, I use an advanced version of notepad to create my web site projects. Everything is hand-coded, with HTML, ASP, include files, etc. I would like to add a WYSIWYG editor of some sort. But, one that does NOT mess up any of my code at all. Ideally, I'd like it to have both a design view and a code view. Something that when in design/WYSIWYG mode, will show exactly (or close to it), what will be displayed in the browser, i.e. with include files and CSS shown and ASP executed. Needs to integrate with PWS on Win98. Am I dreaming, or is there a program that will do this? I prefer hand-coding "most of the time".. but there are days when I'd rather just edit content/design without worrying about the code until I get the look that I want. Homesite and Hotmetal Pro neither seem to do what I want, though I only have evaluation versions. If the program can't process include files or ASP, then it isn't much help in design mode for what I'm looking for. Any recommendations?
