Hard core HTML 'coders' will only use notepad (the plain text windows editor) to write their webpage/CSS markup. It is the equivalent of a jedi light-sabre, pure and divine. For those of us that don't quite master the power of the force, editor˛ (the text editor/viewer accompanying xplorer˛) is a more reasonable and productive alternative.
As we've seen in the past editor˛ goes a long way for its measly 128KB size. For quick HTML/XML editing it offers all the usual features plus:
- Autotexts. With a single click or key you insert commonly used text like <B></B> HTML tags. You define your own with Autotext menu
- Automatic indentation. Tidy code is easier to read, especially for block elements like <DIV> and tables. If you turn on View > Autoindent menu command, you will get nicely formatted lines of text
- External preview. Quickly see how your webpage looks like hitting <F12> to preview the edited file in internet explorer
|If you hold down <Shift> key, the whole tag block will be selected.
Here is the latest editor˛ build 2.9.1. Except for tag matching it also supports opening multiple files from the command line and the xplorer˛ equivalent /I switch that can be used to load a REG settings file when editor˛ loads, simulating a portable behaviour.
