There is some compatibility issues associated with anything other than hand coding for HTML (and for that matter, even with hand coding.)

The best choice for compatibility is Dreamweaver but you cannot use layers. Layers must be converted to tables to be used.

The worst choice is FrontPage. FrontPage is loaded with problems because it uses Microsoft and therefore internet explored specific code.

Items that will not work in other browsers include: Marquees Virginia website design can use a JavaScript scroller to create a similar effect that will work in the most common browsers. Bgsound tag - this is IE specific. Page Transitions - this is IE specific. Front Page generated Style sheets - this is IE specific and can have unexpected results or crash other browsers. Front Page generated DHTML - it is better to use JavaScript to create the effects you want since it is more likely to be cross browser compatible. Hover Buttons - this is IE specific and has been know to crash browsers including older versions of IE. You can use JavaScript, flash or CSS to get similar effects.

Other HTML Editors - the rest of the HTML editors will fall somewhere between Dreamweaver and FrontPage in cross browser compatibility. You just have to test the code your HTML editor generates.

I guess you might have to test the code that your HTML editor generates in your browsers... use different browsers to test if it is working properly...

While word processors are not ostensibly HTML editors, many of the major products are capable of exporting document layouts in HTML format. This offers the ease of use of a word processor, similar to a WYSIWYG product (see below), but has some of the same end product limitations.

SciTE is a SCIntilla based Text Editor. Originally built to demonstrate Scintilla, it has grown to be a generally useful editor with facilities for building and running programs. It is best used for jobs with simple configurations - I use it for building test and demonstration programs as well as SciTE and Scintilla, themselves.

SciTE is currently available for Intel Windows (XP or later) and Linux compatible operating systems with GTK+. It has been run on Windows 7 and on Fedora 12 and Ubuntu 10.10 with GTK+ 2.20. Here is a screenshot of SciTE.

On Windows, there is a companion application Filerx which provides project management and macro features to SciTE.

You can download Scintilla and SciTE .

thanks for the link. to be honest, i use scite a lot. it's incredibly fast, light on features, and fits into my workflow nicely. along with the alt+[tab_number] and ctrl+tab and alt+tab shortcuts, it allows me to get a lot down, fast.

I don't think HTML ever needs a WYSWIG editor!

"BIOS Terminator"

I would clearly recommend you Eclipse PDT, which is the best PHP/HTML/CSS/JS editor I know. Maybe a bit bloat, but incomparably useful!

It is possible to write web pages with just a editor but 'HTML editor' makes it easy and very efficient to write web-pages.
There is one HTML editor which would like to suggest is "Taco HTML Edit"

Although word processors have stated HTML editors, most of the major export products can design HTML document. This ensures ease of use of a word processor, a similar product WYSIWYG (see below), but it has the same drawbacks as the final products.
