Web Developement Software

I have to produce a web site for uni

can anyone recommend an reasonably priced editor that supports at least javascript, jsp, html, & css along with good help for tags, objects, functions etc?

Notepad. It's free. Supports anything you want to code. ;-)  No help though.

Macromedia DreamWeaver is very good.

www.macromedia.com

For a free one try:

www.jedit.org

Sure thing!  Check this page out: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/WebDevSoftware/Q_21153463.html#12325750

There are several free options there; I personally use DW mainly, but have been in Nvu ( http://www.nvu.com ), and it seemed to be a pretty nice piece of software.  Not perfect, but you might give it a try for the price...

If you can just do code, that's the best, but if you have to go gui, then I'd say to find and use:

1. A good, free gui editor like Nvu
2. A good, free ftp client like FileZilla ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/filezilla/ )
3. Notepad
4. NO FRONTPAGE EXTENSIONS OR INTERACTION WHATSOEVER

Got it? ;-)  Have fun!

Prepare for your VMware VCP6-DCV exam.

Josh Coen and Jason Langer have prepared the latest edition of VCP study guide. Both authors have been working in the IT field for more than a decade, and both hold VMware certifications. This 163-page guide covers all 10 of the exam blueprint sections.

A great free text editor
   http://www.evrsoft.com/1stpage2.shtml

100% free comes with a load of built in scripts in perl, and js, has a browse feature for viewing as you go

for style shhets look for topstyle lite free ware version

CoolATIGuyCommented:
Ah, yes, TopStyle Lite ( http://www.bradsoft.com/download/index.asp ).  Might as well give it a shot for free. :-)  Again, could probably be a little nicer, but you get what you pay for.

As far as 1st Page 2000, that was mentioned in the link I posted above...

Any of these looking promising, PhillO?

Very promising

i will look at these over the weekend.

i am not opposed to paying for software - just paying too much and getting little extra value for it

you definitely need to look at jedit.  it's a great text editor.  jedit.sf.net

or try scintilla / scite.

also, look for crimson editor.  that's an awesome editor too.

Jedit is high in development. all the way to version 4.5 or higher. and has some cool plugins.  it's really a good programmers tool , but for a lot of other things.  I've started writing my .rtf files in it

I like a lightweight environment with tooltips.

Macromedia's Homesite does it for me: http://www.macromedia.com/software/homesite/ (homesite 5.5)

Homesite+ comes with Dreamweaver MX, and Dreamweaver MX has an option to make the dev env. 'feel' like Homesite. I would choose Homesite everytime, even if it weren't cheaper than DW - 79.00 GBP, compared to 339 GBP. I don't know where they get the prices from....

One thing - it's not a 'drag-and-drop' environment. That's good for me 'cos I think D and Dropping is a bit like using Frontpage, lol.

Just my 2 pence, ; )
