Home Forums CSS Question about Design view vs Code editor Re: Question about Design view vs Code editor


A good text editor provides features such as colour coding different languages and highlighting syntax errors in your code. Another useful feature is that it will enable you to hide portions of code you’re not working on thereby making it easier to find the section you are working on.

I use TextWrangler which is free. There are others such as TextMate, Notepad++ which I’ve heard good things about. Some are free, some not, and you will need to choose one that works on your set up. Google text editors for web developers or something similar – [this will get you started]( “”)
