I have been a member of this site for a number of years but note that my last post was circa 1009/2010.
Shame on you! But welcome back.
I am rusty on my HTML (or is it XHML these days?)
Don't worry. XHTML came and went. It has been discontinued. The next rave is HTML5. Note that one must write that without space, unlike HTML 3.2, HTML 4.01 and so on. It shows how modern it is.
HTML 4.01 still works just fine.
What I need advice on is as follows:
[indent]1. what is a good text editor to use to write HTML and CSS code? - not a WYSIWYG one, or one that does it all for you, but one where you type in the code and perhaps it colour codes those bits it recognises as valid commands, values, and attributes so you know you are on the right track ... or, indeed, are text editors a thing of the past, like me
Text editors will never go out of style.
A lot have syntax highlighting, but I don't know about marking out not valid HTML. I don't have anything to recommend because I think the choice of editor is very personal. What's the best for me isn't necessarily the best for you or Darin.
What's wrong with Crimson though? Why can't you continue to use it?
