    Any recomendations? I don't have access to Frontpage here, and I needed something to fix a couple of tables... I've been googling for some time, but infortunally most "FreeWare" stuff I find is actually either actually ShareWare, or most likely, shareware riddled with spyware...

    Good one. I use notepad (Actually a weird kind of notepad that colors the codelines) over here... that's why I don't have frontpage... On the other hand I said I needed to fix tables...
    Maybe a couple was taken literally, but these tables will crush my skull if I try to fix them in notepad eheh. I need something that displays the result, and let's me directly edit it at the same time, akin to frontpage, or Word.

    There are also plug-ins for Eclipse, but... thinking about it, if the source is too complex to edit by hand, then it is probably also not going to give you great results in a wysiwyg editor.

    use a text editor, you wuss.

    it's only a html table, how complex can it be?

    edit: ugh. this piss poor forum software won't even let me quote code correctly.

    I used to use this for coding HTML, was excellent.

    Dreamweaver is better though, when using the code tab.

    nope.

    the forum software won't let you quote html even if it's wrapped between code tags.

    meh

    just use firefox with the firebug add on.

    view the web page as normal then open firebug, click 'html' and 'inspect'.

    that way you can find the exact piece of code you're after and then edit the html with a text editor.

    Taco HTML Edit's my editor of choice, but I think it's a Mac-only prog, therefore probably not much use to the OP, but maybe to others out there...

    Kompozer seems alright, I've struggled finding anything close to Coda on windows though, so if you have OSX I'd use that.

    Haha. Outed!

    As soon as I read 'like FrontPage but free' I just thought of FrontPage Express. Is that even available anywhere? I think that was what I used way way back in the day before I purloined Dreamweaver from someone.

    Isn't HTML absolutely dead in this day and age?
  • Deleted user 7 October 2010 21:23:50
    Yeah, HTML 5 is dead in the water :D

    You weren't kidding

    The criteria for the specification becoming a W3C Recommendation is “two 100% complete and fully interoperable implementations”. In an interview with TechRepublic, Hickson guessed that this would occur in the year 2022 or later.
