Whats a simple, basic HTML editor with a built-in preview function?

Don't need WYSIWYG or heaps of features.

Preferably open-source or freeware.

Mozilla web browser has a pretty good composer built in. It is free, open source, and WYSIWYG if you need it, but has a good source editor, javascript checker, and preview.

plus, on top of all that it is a great browser too.

Get it at http://www.mozilla.org

it is about 12Mb.

I use First Page 2000 from http://www.evrsoft.com/

Nice easy to use html editor with preview, coloured tags (so you can see what is what) and built in java script / image editors.

No...

I want something really small and basic (unbloated), just basic stuff like syntax highlighting with a built-in html preview function.

I will continue searching the net with google ;-)

A few come to my mind but I don't think you are going to get minimum bloat with an HTML preveiw function built in. My favorite is 1stPage2000 as well but others that I've tried are acehtml5free, MetaPad (http://www.pricelessware.org/2004/PL2004TEXT.htm) and NoteTab Light (http://www.notetab.com/). All are free but only the first one includes the preview as far as I can remember.

Forrest44 - do you have Microsoft Office installed at all? (Version 2000 or newer I think - I'm not sure about older versions)

There's a program installed with Office which they don't really tell you about, its hidden away in Program Files somewhere. Anyway, it's called Microsoft Script Editor, and it is really good as a HTML editor. Do a search of your computer for "mse.exe".

Cheers,
Mike.

And you could try this.....

....to get Arachnophila Website Developer. You write the code but it checks it for you, lots of nifty functions, easy to use.

Ah, I knew there was one I had missed: Arachnophila. (http://www.fullprograms.co.uk/descargas-file-87-details-Arachnophila.html) That may be just what you require. ;-)

Strongly reccomend 1st page from evrsoft. Extremely good.

Apparently new one coming soon. I would definately have this, if I had not bought Dreamweaver.

Or if you dont want to wait for the newer version, try HTML Builder XP, which is basically the same, but with more options, because it used to be the same company or something.

I use TSW Webcoder (www.tsware.net). May be a bit more that you want (about a 2.6Meg install, includes FTP cabability, etc) but I like the way you can you can jump between HTML, preview, or a quickedit WYSIWYG mode where you can do some minor edits in the preview screen.

...and it's free...

TSW WebPad is absolutly perfect...

Thanx

Only problem is minor: it displays a nagging registration box so the authur can keep track of how many people use his program..
