Coming from a pure Notepad programmer originally, I migrated to Homesite and found it was the next best thing. Nothing touches my code - I have complete control. With Dreamweaver and other WYSIWYIG HTML editors, excessive amounts of code are placed in the code when you "drag and drop" elements onto the canvas. This results in a lot of <td></td> (empty table cells - used for padding). Not all browsers are going to interpret this spacing correctly - thus - BUSTED CODE. Homesite has built in tools to mimic some WYSIWYG functionality, so essentially, you are getting the best of both worlds, plus you can add on custom items (dictionaries, wizards) and with color coding for ASP, PHP, CSS, HTML you code takes on a whole life of its own. I would not code with out it! mj -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org]On Behalf Of Gabriel Vasquez Sent: Tuesday, July 01, 2003 7:48 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] HomeSite Why do people like HomeSite so much?
