HTML Editors

The HTML Editor list provided as a help to choose between the various programs out there. HTML is an ASCII markup language and can be completely coded in a text editor. Some feel most comfortable doing just that. The best editors combine a design view with a strong coding view so you can switch between either. The better editors also tend to create better code that looks good across multiple browsers and isn’t bloated with sloppy html. The list below are programs I have either personal experience with or are recognized leaders or both.
