I am seeking recommendations for a simple text-based HTML editor to recommend for those of our staff who create web pages. I use BBedit on a Mac, but the others all use Windows.
There are dozens of such programs, so i am asking for recommendations.
Things I would like in it include:
-html syntax coloring (and highlighting of errors?)
-built-in ftp client to avoid the download-edit-upload cycle
(they will be working in a development area)
-Unicode (UTF-8) compliance as they will be working with both English
-search and replace
-able to have multiple files open simultaneously
Other things which would be nice, but are not critical:
-built-in link checker
-spell checker (for the English parts)
-html tidy integration and/or html validation/checking
-a kitchen sink or two :)
If any of you have such a tool you use and love, could you kindly drop me a note? I will summarize for the list.
