Please don't rot your mind with an editor!!!! :)You learn so much more by using notepad and hand coding. You develope much stronger coding skills. Even with .Net I use Notepad at home...I only us VS.n

Well... actually the latest version of Dreamwaver is 8, not MX. Here's more info:http://www.macromedia.com/software/dreamweaver/

I'm on a mac. New to html and working through tutorials on this site. *thanks!*No experience with coding but have got TextMate. It seems good, does anyone use it? Like it?School wants me to use Dreamweaver, but I am trying to learn with a more simple approach before school starts.

Dreamweaver for sure. That's because it's soooo much more than a text editor, expensive though.I also use Notepad for when I need to learn, since Dreamweaver makes it easy.

hello....new to the forum here but old-time visitor of the tutorials.....MS Expression Web is my favorite.....I don't know why, I am a Linux / Open Source kind of guy...I guess MS Expression Web is what I started with and never messed around with anything else...You can use PHP starting with MS Exp Web 2 - I haven't messed around with Exp Web 3 though.....When I am in a hurry or on the move and need to make a quick edit, I use JujuEdit a lot...you can carry the portable version in a flash drive....Best Regards from Houston Tx!

I disable the auto-completion feature to learn, or I use Gedit.
For some of us, features like auto-completion and syntax highlighting are the only reasons to use a dedicated editor. But nomnex's plan sounds like good practice for learning. :)

I've been using CONText since day but I just got a Mac which isn't replacing my Windows Laptop, but I want as much as possible to have the same environment on it as my Windows machine. I was gutted to discover that CONText isn't available on Mac. It's almost worth getting Boot Camp or similar so I can switch between Mac and Windows applications. I don't feel happy doing that though - I'm not confident enough to even be led by the hand down the disc partition route.So, saving that, I DLed jEdit, which is okay but it lacks some of the features I like in CONText - it doesn't have the file browser at the side, I don't think I can swap between different language highlighting, there's some crazy vertical line down my window and man the colours are bright and many. A few colours is useful, but there's too many! Does anyone have any CONText clones that run on Snow Leopard?? (by using two question marks, I emphasize my eagerness for information and make you do my bidding).

There are some great editors for OS X, like Coda and Expresso - but if you are just looking for a ConTEXT-like application, TextWrangler is quite good. I seriously suggest checking out some of the other options, though.

I just dled Coda and it does look quite good. Is it free though? The website has a purchase tab in the navigation, but when i open up the application, I am not prompted for any type of key or license... I'm guessing you are a mac guy. What do you think of TextMate?

The full version of Coda is not free; there is a place to enter a purchased serial number in the application. TextMate is quite simple, but there are equivalent free options.I actually more use Windows, though I have worked on OS X systems.

Do you know the differences in the free and purchased Coda? What would be an equivalent free editor to TextMate?

I like Coda, it's similar in layout to ConText. I have pretty basic needs from a code editor, and it covers them all. I will read the help to learn more about it though - seems there are some nice time saving features.

The free trial of Coda is only for 14 days, I believe. Did you look at TextWrangler?

Coda is a full IDE - it aims to provide for your entire workflow (as it says, text editor + file transfer + svn + css + terminal + books + more).

Hiokay I was thinking about which editor I must use but after reading this post i believed in the idea about hand coding and started to use notepad it is a simple nice program but its getting silly so I started looking back in the list of the editors I found an editor called (notepad2) it have all the goods of notepad and it looks much like him (even in the name :) ) and it is organized better so I choose it to become my editor.thanks for the post its nice. :)

For the Mac fans, I'll put another plug out there for TextWrangler. It's the closest thing to ConText I have found for OSX and even though I use a VM for work, I still don't find it worth the trouble using VM and/or boot camp just for a text editor, so as dismayed as I am to not have Context, TextWrangler works just fine. We are just talking about text editors after all, although I will concede syntax highlighting is a pretty nice feature, other than that, I'm not too bothered by what they do or don't have.

I'll second that. Many Mac users are familiar with BBEdit, which has been around forever and adds features all the time. TextWrangler is Bare Bones's free version of BBEdit, so you know it's a good piece of software.TextWrangler has the added benefit of being able to see and edit all those "hidden" files used by the Unix layer, in case you ever want to change some of your more esoteric system settings.
