Wanted: Decent WYSIWYG, cheap...

Hey. Is anyone on the ole' flist familiar with the CoffeeCup HTML editor? I was just wondering if anyone could comment on the functionality and usability. I used to use DreamWeaver and I *loved* it, but I no longer have that program.

Can anyone suggest programs that they have found easy to use and low/no cost? I'm all about shareware and open source projects. *grin*

I've always used Emacs -- cross-platform, and you can also use it as a mail and news client, and for editing any text, not just html, so you don't have to learn different commands for different languages.

(On the downside, Emacs commands are very different from the usual windows/mac editing commands. And it's not WYSIWYG, though it does show things like bold and italics.)

I like Emacs in part because I like using a monospaced font for editing, and I like creating html files that I can read as text.

The Mozilla suite has a WYSIWYG HTML editor that's had years of development. There are several other open source editors; I just don't have occasion to use them.

One other data point is that my older daughter went back to emacs after taking a Dreamweaver course. She is not much of a computer geek, either.

I used a version of Coffecup many years ago, and liked it well enough - but I liked Dreamweaver better. OTOH I have no idea what CC is like these days.

A lot of it depends on how much you're doing, I guess...I've played around with Arachnophilia and don't mind it, but most of what I do is with vi....

You could also try out their free edition first. Also, look at nvu
