CoffeeCup HTML Editor 9.0
CoffeeCup is an often-overlooked HTML editor that gives you more value for your money than any other HTML editors on the market today. At a price of $49, I guess you could say that CoffeeCup is almost giving this great program away (especially considering the price tags some of the "big" HTML editors such as Dreamweaver). And it even works for both newbies and professionals!
You can log on to ZDnet.com and have a look at the approval rating of this product to get an idea of how pleased users are with it (93% of users recommend using it). The general idea is that you get more bang for your buck. At $49 for a full registration, this product gives you, by far, the most/best features and customer support for the money you're paying.
Although the user interface is not as easy to understand as those of Dreamweaver or FrontPage, the low price is definitely worth taking a while to read through the extensive manual and learn as you go. If you are a new user, the several wizards guide you through setting up more complex elements of Web pages, such as creating tables. However, I strongly encourage those of you who have no HTML knowledge and are considering using CoffeeCup to read through some basic HTML tutorials or buy one of the many available books (try any search engine, such as http://www.google.com or http://www.altavista.com). Basic coding knowledge is still required if you want to design more complex Web pages, although the program has become more WYSIWYG with every new version.
CoffeeCup is very inexpensive for what you get.
It has a clean HTML interface, split-screen design, and previewing.
It's easily customizable.
Many extras accompany it, including a thesaurus, HTML check, font designer, and easy-to-add HTML effects that you would just not expect to come with the software for the price you're paying.
CoffeeCup is not recommended if you are managing big Web sites. It's not easy to organize many files and folders in a categorized order.
If you don't know basic HTML coding, you need to get studying!
Price: CoffeeCup is shareware, so you can buy the full version for just $49.
