  • Cross-platform editor....

    jEdit is an opensource, cross-platform text editor that has some very useful features.

    The one I particularly like is the ability to "fold" the text file. When an HTML file gets to be more than a couple of screenfuls, the ability to fold it is really important.

    I stumbled across this editor while I was searching for something else and downloaded it for a trial - I think it might become my main editor.

    There are things I wish it could do, but there are lots of plug-ins and lots of people making more (and they will help you make your own) so anything is possible.

    I have no connection to jEdit or it's creators. I'm posting this for information only.

    Take care, Margaret

      or try emacs, context, crimson, editpad, vi, xemacs...

      ummmm... yeah, emacs for sure

      though, visual studio 6 has the editor also nicely done... [but that's far from opensource or free ]
