    Do you use a WYSIWYG editor!

    Hi,

    Out of curiousity, Who are using WYSIWYG editors.. If so.. Which ones?

    I personally do not use them. i use a java editor, JEXT I also have Coffeecup, but use that mainly for picking colors, and making big complicated forms..

    J.
    Php 4.* to 5.*. A small step for programmers. But a leap for me!

    I use front page to make large static tables, it's much easier and faster but other then that it's hand coding and will be until someone makes an xhtml compliant visual editor that does stylesheets correctly and is cross platform friendly.

    the dreamweaver guy

    Unfortunately, I'm kind of stuck, and Dreamweaver IS my best friend right now. This is mainly because I came to web design from a database background, so needing to learn PHP was enough, I decided to let DW do the HTML grunt work for me. But as it turns out, all i really like are the automated ftp functions in it. Most of the other stuff just gets in the way. Can anybody recommend a PHP editor that manages ftp updating fluidly?

    cheers!
    Jason

    Another vote for DW (MX). Why?
    • source code formatting
    • autocomplete/tooltips for function parameters & superglobals
    • Site map and FTP integration
    although for raw HTML I tend to code by hand rather than use the DW tools.

    I completely agree. It's also nice to have a tool that does both ASP and PHP (both of which I use at work)

    Perhaps if I bothered to actually learn all the DW HTML tools, I might use them more It's probably my (bad) coding sytle, but I tend to mix up PHP and HTML a lot in most of my pages, rather than keep them separate, so hand-coding's easier.

    UltraEdit/Quanta/JEdit for me (depends on platform/OS, obviously)

    WYS is rarely WYG.
    Many eyes make few mistakes

    DW and Textpad, please...

    DW is not so bad, but I've to tell I look the code each time I insert a visual object... And my rigth-shift is going down by inserting <br> instead of poor <p>.

    However just to modify the "look" of the page it's enough "WYG".

    ...I'm forgivening the table view constantly on "standard view"...
    It's statistically proven that anything can be proven by means of statistics...
