A Promising HTML Editor

September 11, 2003 at 9:10 pm | Posted in Macintosh | Leave a comment

One of my favorite HTML editors under the Classic MacOS is the orphaned Symantec Visual Page.

I have been looking for a similar program under OSX. I’ve tried PageSpinner, BBEdit and found that I need some WYSIWYG rendering mode while composing the page. I find “preview in browser” too distracting, even though I’d rather code my HTML instead of laying it out graphically. I can’t really justify GoLive or DreamWeaver, so I’m left iwith looking for low-cost or shareware solutions.

Recently, I found that Tumult HyperEdit is a good implementation of a low-end split-view WYSIWYG HTML editor. I believe that it uses Apple’s WebKit and therefore can render most kinds of HTML out there. It’s still a beta version, but I hope it matures quickly.
