    Used to use it back in the day. It's decent, worth a try at least.

    Coffee cup has some advantages over notepad however there are better. Look for these features: row numbering, sytax highlighting (html, css, javascript and if poss asp, php and other scripts) predictive typing (saves time).

    I have Komodo editor on my system. It's pricy but it does come in both windows and linux versions which I use. I also use www.nvu.org which is a free OSS wysiwyg editor that has a code editor build in.

    Here are two totally free editors that are the best I've used.

    Get TextWrangler for Macs at http://www.barebones.com/products/te...er/index.shtml

    Or CrimsonEditor for PCs at http://www.crimsoneditor.com/

    My guess is you're PC-based since you mentioned Notepad...check out Crimson Editor. I've paid for lots of text editors but I always go back to this freeware app.

    How that helps.

    I used Coffeecup a long time a go when I was first getting into writing HTML, but now I've moved on to better things.

    I went through a phase of using Notepad, but I find that now, HTML-Kit is a much better piece of specialised software, that is totally free. Link in my signature or via www.chami.com.

    Well, my friend just gave me a cd with a lot of software on it; "Coffee Cup Free HTML Editor", "Alleycode HTML Editor", and "Simple CSS". I like "Simple CSS" and Alleycode looks pretty simple to use. I also downloaded HTML-Kit. Wow! I have 3 HTML Editors so far on my computer. Anyone heard of these softwares I just installed onto my PC? Let me in on some info my friends!!
