    Question An affordable HTML WYSIWYG editor?

    I am looking for a cheap and easy to use WYSIWYG editor. So far, the only one I came accross is something called www.BlockNote.Net. I was wondering if someone could name me something similar only better??

    PS cheap means under $100.

    Try download.com for the cheap ones. There you can see the most popular ones, and perhaps even some reviews.

    Have you thought about using a trial version of Dreamweaver? I think that works for 30 days.

    I've used Namo WebEditor. In fact, I seriously considered buying it instead of Dreamweaver. However it's not as good at server-side stuff as Dreamweaver, and I do a lot of this. But for most things it's pretty good - I was quite impressed.

    Can you tell me if there is major issues with Namo? I looked at it, but I still like Blocknote better for some reason.

    Did you download it and try it out?

    The main thing I didn't like was that it's just not set up as well for server-side programming when compared to Dreamweaver. Whether that's a major issue or not depends on what you need to do.

    Well I don't need server side or anything like that. Just straightforward webpage creation. Yes I did download it!

    Well then, I can't think of any major issues for what you want to use it for. In fact, I think Namo is much better value for money than Dreamweaver for general web page work. It's kind of the same as a Paint Shop Pro vs Photoshop argument.

    However it's really up to you and what you feel comfortable using.

    Gosh!! I am so sorry. I haven't checked the website in a while & didn't know that they've stopped giving the free version. But earlier they did provide the free version with 4-5 templates. To get more templates & resources, one had to purchase the software.
    Now it seems that they are not providing the free version.
