HTML-Kit is a free text editor that will allow you to have complete control over the code you create and will also help speed up web page development. Coding a web page can become quite complex especially when you are using a variety of technologies. Unlike the C programmer who may create an application using one language, the web developer is often required to integrate different technologies. HTML-Kit has a number of unique features and plug-ins that help simplify this process. To follow this discussion some knowledge of HTML and other web technologies is required.
Improved Web Development using HTML-Kit (Page 1 of 5 )
HTML-Kit, is a free, full-feature HTML editor available for download at http://www.chami.com/htmlkit/. Unfortunately for those of you who like to do your development work under different operating systems, HTML-Kit only runs under Windows. The compressed file of this application is fairly small (3.1 MB) so it should download quickly regardless of your connection type. Despite its small size, HTML-Kit is an excellent application with many built-in features and optional plug-ins that make creating web pages easier. However, I should emphasize that it is not a graphic development tool such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver. HTML-Kit is still a text editor, albeit a very powerful one.
At the download site you will find a basic user manual and a number of tutorials that detail many of HTML-Kit's features. For instance, if you have trouble installing the application, you'll find help on this subject. I won't duplicate any of that information here but simply refer you to the URL, http://www.chami.com/html-kit/support/refs/. Users unfamiliar with HTML editors might benefit by first reading the introductory tutorial at the above URL. What I intend to do in this article is highlight some of the unique features of this editor in order to get you off to a flying start.
