    FYI, they don't update that software anymore. They haven't in quite some time.

    However, if it works who cares.
    Microsoft has not updated notepad in quite a long time. And VI is still in version 0.9
    But I still use them both to write HTML and Javascript [from time to time].

    Notepad isn't full of bugs like Nvu is. Plus Nvu isn't feature complete. They didn't even release a version 1.0. And plain text isn't changing nearly as frequently as web standards and support. A stale GUI editor is not a good thing.

    Hang on a sec, surely when people say they use 'Notepad' to code they're just speaking about a general text editor, and not actually Notepad!? O_o

    Lots of people use notepad for hand coding.

    Outstanding attributes:

    • consistent behavior
    • small footprint
    • ubiquitous availability
    • the best price


    Notepad.exe is the only Windows application that (in my experience) has NEVER crashed!

    That's true. For anyone that's interested, there's a Notepad replacement called NotePad+ which can handle big files. It looks pretty much the same as Notepad, except it's got a status bar that tells you line and column position (among other things).

    NotePad+

    That's the one! Always imitated yet never duplicated Notepad!


    I tell anyone who is serious about learning HTML to start with Notepad. It's the best way to learn code instead of just clicking buttons.
    I took an correspondance class once to learn HTML and they were adament about using Notepad to code to do our lessons.
    It's a good idea, but alas! Nobody wants to learn how to do it. They want it Done!
    Kinda like that old Dire Straits Video, instead of I Want My MTV, it's I Want My Wordpress Theme

    Hehe ParkinT ^

    I'm not disputing that hand coding is worth learning (and I do it myself) it's just I never thought people actually used Notepad itself :P

    It's hard to believe that something so basic can be used to create such complex objects like websites.
    Now, I'll admit that I eventually started using HTML editors, but in a pinch, I'll fire upold Notepad to view the source or make a quick correction -- especially if the machine I'm on doesn't have anything else (like the ones at work!).
    I guess it's just to easy to get me fired about learning code. I meet many people who say they want to learn web design, but will not take the time to learn any code.
    Then they get all bent out of shape when Frontpage won't "do what they want."

    If you're using Nvu, check out KompoZer. KompoZer is an updated version that is still being worked on.

    I think the program is a good one to learn with, because, it uses standard HTML and provides different modes which allows one to easily see the structure of a page and the code. Probably if one want to deal alot with the code a text editor is better, but it depends on the goals one has.
