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/

Dreamweaver8 all the way

Gosh I have been using a lot of editors :) First I was a Notepad user, then I switched to Notepad2, then I switched to Notepad++ what then was spoiling my NSIS scripts somehow and now I use Crimson Editor which seems to be the best so far, there are ranges and delimeters in syntax highlighting so it's easy to make great syntax highlighting extensions. I made RSS and SVG (but they aren't ready :)).BTW any Crimson Editor user? How do you configure the auto syntax highlighting detector? For example I have the SVG syntax highlighting and I want to do the auto detect switch the syntax highlighting to SVG when a SVG file loads?

I'm looking for an editor to install on my school's computers. I have been invited to install all of the software there, and scince they also teach HTML (ONLY... uh...) I need some good editor.Requred features include:

  • Syntax highlighting (what is an HTML editor without it) on HTML and optionally - CSS.
  • Auto complete.
  • Automatically closing the appropriate tag when "</" is typed.

Optional features include

  • (X)HTML validator.
  • Live preview within the program and/or an ability to preview the file with different browsers.
  • A list of HTML's tags to drag&drop from.

Dreamwaver 8 has all of those (except the last optional one, which is not for my own sake though) but it's a bit heavy for the very weak machines that the school uses. 800Mhz Intel CPUs, 128MB RAM, an on-board video, which draws memory from the RAM, making it something like 96 or so. I'm taking it with me anyway, but lighter editors you might know will also do.I tryed ConTEXT, but it seems it misses the auto complete and auto closure features. If they could be enabled, how?

UltraEdit-32 is amazing :)
I know right? I just love it.I also have Dreamweaver, I rarely use it because of how long it takes to load... UltraEdit-32 is a lot faster although it might not be as nice as Dreamweaver, it still gets the job done nicely. :)

try Notepad2...it is just like Notepad except with line numbers and code highlighting.
Notepad 2 is just the best, I used to use Notepad, but when I saw this discussion, I saw Notepad 2 on the poll, so I downloaded it and it is great.I like the colour coding and the line and col numbers are really useful when specifying code. :):):):blink::blink::blink::angry::blink::(:mellow:

I only wish it had tabbed browsing then it would be perfect but I like it because it is still simple.

No, there's no auto-complete in ConTEXT, it was designed as a general-purpose editor and doesn't include any language-specific features. But it does have code templates, which you can set up under the Options menu and access using CTRL-J. You can set up a template to automatically enter this for you, for example:<table><tr><tr></td></tr></table>Anything you can think of you can set up in the templates, and insert one with CTRL-J.

Anyone tried Microsoft XML Notepad? I just sort of stumbled upon it now...
Yeah. I recently stumbled upon it too. Can't remember from where exactly. And... it sucks.I hate the fact that I can't see the raw source code.Previweing the output of XSLT transformations would have impressed me if I hadn't already been able to use PHP and Cold Fusion's XSLT processors.Moving the elements from one point to another is a good feature, but I'm personally feeling more comfortable when moving code pieces.The error list is another good feature, but without source code view, what's the use of it? You can't make a mistake anyway.And the most irratating thig is the way different nodes are presented. They are all tree-like structured. I like to think of attributes as pointers and elements as childs. So instead of:
-Root--Text-of-the-root--Arrtibute-to-the-root---Text-of-the-attribute-of-the-root--Element---Arrtibute-to-the-element----Text-of-the-attribute-of-the-element

I prefer to think of an XML document as:

-Root--Arrtibute-to-the-root | Text-of-the-attribute-of-the-root--Element--Arrtibute-to-the-element | Text-of-the-attribute-of-the-element

Wow, ConTEXT, can find and replace in all files that are open, and soon in a whole folder, thats cool, im always having to change something that is on all of my pages, like links to things and stylesheets etc.That would be really cool, save a lot of time for me anyway.

That really depends on what you ask of an editor. Do you want support for whole projects (in which case it'd be good to have tabbed documents) or the occasional individual page? What languages do want highlightning for? Specify some things like this, and I'm sure we can point you to a good editor. :)
