HTML Editors - How to Choose the Right One for Building Your Websites

There are lots of HTML editors on the market, however, you will want to look for one that has specific tools that will make building your websites easy, straightforward, and as stress-free as possible. Review the following requirements you should look for in an HTML editor.

Tool #1 - Word Wrap

You want to see everything you are writing and editing so an HTML editor with word wrap is very important. If your HTML editor does not have word wrap you will have many sentences in one line of text that is really long and more difficult to edit. Also, without word wrap you will be hitting the return key a lot and it is simply easier if you have this function.

Tool #2 - Customize

Make sure your HTML editor starts out with all of the basics but is also customizable to meet your specific needs as an editor. This will allow you to do your job exactly as you like in the order you want.

Tool #3 - File Support

When choosing an HTML editor, you will want to make sure it supports long file names. This will pay off for you and cause you fewer problems.

Tool #4 - Conversions

If you are working on many pages, you'll want pathway conversions included in your html editor. With this feature, your HTML editor will be able to make the conversion for you depending on UNIX, Dos, or Windows and save you both plenty of time and headaches.

Tool #5 - Keyboard or Mouse

Some HTML editors are geared more toward a mouse while others are more geared toward a keyboard. You should decide whether you work best with a keyboard or mouse, and then choose an html editor that corresponds to your preference.

Tool #6 - Platform

Depending on whether you use Windows or Mac makes a huge difference in the html editor you use. Basically, if you use Windows you have lots of choices and options which can make choosing more difficult. However, if you use Mac you have fewer options and will have to deal with what is available unless you want to change platforms.

Tool #7 - Budget

Your budget is also a consideration in choosing the right html editor. You may be able to spend hundreds of dollars or you may be in search of a free option. Both are available, so know what you can spend as well as what you are looking for.

Choosing an HTML editor is not easy because not of them are going to have every tool you want in the budget you can afford. However, you can read reviews and test out different editors to find the one that best fits your skills and needs.
