I spend 90 percent of my time working with computers, but for relaxation, I often play with the Web sites I have running. And although I have all the latest Web-development tools, and Microsoft's Visual Studio (VS) 6.0 Enterprise Edition installed on my workstation, I often prefer to simply write HTML by hand.
However, I'm not so hard core that I would totally forsake some of the conveniences that the current crop of HTML editors offer. Yet, I still don't want anything to get in the way if I only want to write code. My favorite tool for writing code is CoffeeCup Software's CoffeeCup HTML Editor++. I have used this software for more than a year, and it suits me perfectly. The product currently includes free upgrades that add features and functionality without cluttering it with so many gadgets and doodads that it becomes unmanageable.
I like CoffeeCup HTML Editor++ because it has an easy-to-use text editor that in its simplest form is just a text editor. I can configure it so that only Windows Notepad provides HTML help, or turn on progressively more HTML features to suit my mood, such as highlighting tags or inserting headers. I can use wizards to create page elements or simply write the code that I want to use; the application doesn't force me to work the way it wants me to; it lets me work the way I want to work.
Even when CoffeeCup HTML Editor++ offers tools to assist in content creation, it leaves many options open. For example, if I click Image Gallery, a dialog box appears that lets me preview any image file that I can browse to, define alternative image text, size the borders, make the image a link, or simply insert the image.
For the price, CoffeeCup HTML Editor++ is a great deal, and CoffeeCup Software lets you download and test the product's tools for free before you buy. Additionally, CoffeeCup Software has a range of Web-development tools including CoffeeCup Image Mapper++, CoffeeCup Direct FTP, and other Java-creation tools.
