    How do you get it done!

    So, I was just wondering what you guys use to create your websites.

    I'm a fan of Notepad++. I just think the syntax highlighting is brilliant. I used to use notepad but now i'm just used to seeing the keywords turn blue. So basicly, what is it that you use to get the job done? Dreamweaver?

    Wow, that's an old topic you dug up there. I seem to remember having a few such discussions lately? Anyway, people use all kinds of editors. Dreamweaver, BBedit, Notepad(+), Textwrangler… Important is that you don't rely on any design view of any WYSIWYG editor. Code highlighting is helpful. In the end it's personal preference.

    But I'm sure if you do a search here you'll find the other threads where your question has been answered a million times.

    The really scary thing was that I knew which couple search terms to put in to only bring up that thread.

    i have always used windows wordpad in the text document mode. i like the text editing features it provides over notepad. in wordpad you can drag whole paragrahs to a new location. try that in notepad. also the replace function works better.

    then i run the pages thru cse html validator pro and topstyle pro to check them for errors.

    I've been using SciTE for the past year or so. It loads quick and it's very customizable. Basically just use it as a color coded text editor.
