Will be taking a course in HTML using Notepad. Not looking forward to all that typing. Want a plain vanilla editor with some macros to produce the web code. Like what we used to do with PROKEY. Where can I down load such an animal?

Internet Assistant for Word (Microsoft) available for several versions of word.
Homesite (downloadable from the Internet)

There is a cool one, but might be a little complicated. Dreamweaver, is for serious web development, and the beta is free.

Searches on yahoo should return results for these

HomeSite 2.5 is a pretty good editor.  Allows for macros, configuration for publishing, etc.

It is simple if you want it to be and can be complex if you want it to be.

Check out what CNet has to say (went to Yahoo! and did the search)...

Be a real coder and write it out.  I am a Web Designer and have been doing HTML for over 2 years...back then there was NO SUCH THING as an HTML editor.

My text editor of choice is TextPad ... loaded to the brim with all sorts of useful features.  And the latest version even comes with an HTML code library thingy, but I have never used it :)  I think it allows you to do stuff like select a block of text and hit a code like <B></B> and it'll put the tags before/after the block.

I find that writing HTML on-the-fly is the most efficient way of making WWW pages, and produces nice streamlined and structured code -- instead of the tables-overdose and spaghetti effect that you get with WYSIWYG editors.
