FREE web editors?

  stoner 11:58 27 Mar 2004

Hey Guys,
I've just started on HTML but don't want to go to all the trouble yet of spending loads of dosh on an expensive web editor.
Anyone know of any good freebies out there?
Many thanks,

Not just good - downright excellent! HTML-Kit from Chami:

click here

As well as doing a thoroughly good job of being an HTML editor you can download add-ons for much, much more. It is free for personal use and inexpensive to buy for commercial use.

If you want a good (free) HTML tutorial go to W3Schools:

Microsoft Word can create websites.

Go to click here and downlaod Mozilla.
Or instead go to and download Netscape Composer from browser central. Each of these are the same thing.

Someone told me that you can have a FREE SunStar Office. How di I get it?

It's best if you make a new thread for your own subject rather than continue on from someone else's thread.

StarOffice is not available free. It ceased being free a couple of versions ago and now costs to buy and install.

You could try OpenOffice click here if you want a free office suite. StarOffice is, or was, based on OpenOffice and has far greater capabilities, but OpenOffice is a pretty good suite for most users.

You can, if you like, download a trial of StarOffice from click here but it's a large download so you'll need broadband or lots of patience.

The latest edition of this magazine has some tools you would find useful.

sorry this was in reply to original question by stoner

Thanks for all this Guys,
have looked at the HTML-kit from Chami but it looked a bit technical for me ......

  PurplePenny 17:19 28 Mar 2004

HTML-Kit does look technical at first but if you play around with the basic set up you will find that it is a lot easier to use than it first appears.

Crimson Editor is also free:

click here

Or try a 30 day trial of CuteHTML 2.3:

click here

(There is also a Pro version but 2.3 is a far simpler editor.)

I've assumed that you want just an editor to do some hand coding in. If you want more than that then Falkyrn is right - check out this month's PCA (May 2004, issue 106) as the freebie CD has several web tools on it.

Go to click here to see tags of html.
It'll answer your questions of tables, frames and stuff and still give you endless html features to place into a web editor like Notepad.
