Should I assume that you're looking for a WYSIWYG editor? Otherwise, OS X's Text Edit works just fine.

If budget is no limit, Dreamweaver is the way to go. If you looking for something free, SeaMonkey has an editor built in. You might also try KompoZer.

Thank you, Mike. I appreciate that.


RE: HTML Editor for iMac


My need to code HTML is pretty limited. Mostly I post ads to Craigslist and adjust formatting within someone else's framework. No style sheets or scripts, so I don't need a full-blown editor, heck, a text editor works fine but can be a bit tedious.

I was using SeaMonkey but with the latest greatest update it started adding "space" to my code. It didn't effect the output but there were lines of "space" within the code that seemed to grow with every save. Just annoying as heck.

KompoZer seems to work ok, especially given the price but it wants to create code that meets the latest, greatest standards which doesn't always help me.

Of course, if you need to manage a site with many files, Dreamweaver's site management tools are the way to go. Neither, SeaMonkey or Kompozer have them.
