HTML software for web site?
Hey! I want to update my lame web site.

I would like some HTML software to just get a basic page with image links, nothing fancy. What is everyone using? I want something FREE and easy to use. Figure text and images is all I need and there has to be something FREE out there.

I've used MS Word but it was horrible and made all kinds of extra code. Suggestions?

I like EditPlus as the text editor. It's shareware and only $30 to register. You can try it for 30 days. You need to know some HTML but learning the little that you need is quite easy - all you have is tables, text, images and links.

Of course you did emphasize FREE. Oh well.

The source code for your current page is really bloated.

I used CuteHTML when I had Windows.

An excellent full-featured HTML editor is the one included in Open Office -

The absolute best way, bar none, is to learn HTML and code in a text editor, like Notepad. HTML takes about a week or so to learn to proficiency, you'll get much smaller, cleaner code than any HTML editor and have less errors, once you are familiar with the heiarchy. is a great place to learn HTML and XHTML.

Validate your code (weather you use an editor or not, it's best) at


P.S.: Your website isn't lame, it's pretty good! Lame is those big companies with so much Javascript, Flash and M$ specific attributes and extensions that it'll segfault every damn browser that surfs on to them.

I also agree with the others about just learning the basics of HTML, its not complex, and you'll have a better website!

What I would suggest though, is to get an editor that "understands" html and can highlight things and help you out with some of the stuff. What I recommend is jedit, its free, and is one of the most powerful editors I've used in a while. It understands a couple dozen computer languages, does highlighting, and even can auto-complete tags for you! Oh, and its free, just go to: and download it! There's only one downside to it that I've found, and that is that its written in java, so if you have a slow machine (I mean in the 233 range here) it can be slow. It runs nicely on my Athlon 500 and is what I use for html, java and anything else I can throw at it.

I highly recommend it!
