Best Software 14 Apr 2009 @ 11.12
Well the heading says it all. What would be a text editor for me to use? I was thinking about using Notepad ++ or is there better for a complete novice?
Thanks for any replies.

I use Notepad++ and it is my favourite. There is a lot of others out there like PSpad I think it is. You could try getting a few of them and seeing which you are most confortable with but for me I like Notepad++ it is very light and very powerful.

NO NO NO! Komodo Edit is much better, pretty much the same as Dreamweaver but completely free.Site: jackfranklin.co.uk Blog: ispeakwebstuff.co.uk Project: learnitscreencasts.co.uk

I have Dreamweaver CS4 but am not that keen on it. To be honest i like the lightness of Notepad++ rather than the bulky WYSIWYG in Dreamweaver. I mean don't get me wrong its a good little proggy but i think i'll stick with NOTEPAD++ for now and see how i get along.
Thank you anyway for your input, i really appreciate it...

When I said pretty much like Dreamweaver I meant with the code highlighting, code hinting etc. Not the bulky side of it. Komodo is what Dreamweaver should be!Site: jackfranklin.co.uk Blog: ispeakwebstuff.co.uk Project: learnitscreencasts.co.uk

Ahhh, ok i'll download that now and give it a whirl. Why do they have the code in different colours? Whats the reason?
Also what is the best way to start learning coding? I mean i see all the tutorials but still am not sure where to start if you know what i mean?
I'm just looking for a heads up as to the best way to start learning.
How does the website code start? Whats the DOCTYPE and when would i apply it? Also how would i apply it? (What to type) !!
Thank you for any help!!
