Homesite 5 user looking for upgrade advise
I've maintained a lot of my own sites using this old Macromedia Homesite editor. I believe it was originally supplied with Cold Fusion, and maybe Dreamweaver? (lost track now). The last version I got hold of is 5.5. Its has served me well, and it even came with a basic CSS editor, (TopStyle Lite, v. 3.10). My aging brain can seldom remember all the attributes or legal entries available to a given tag, so I've always appreciated its "intellisense" like dropdown menus offering me constant references.
Anyway, I'm just fishing to see haw bad off everyone thinks I am using this old tool. I will say that after a recent discussion involving HTML5, I was pretty shocked to discover Homesight actually knew about <video> and <audio> tags, so maybe not as bad as I think?!
I'm mostly concerned, having been away from web work for several years, that a tool that is no longer supported like this will begin to give me grief as new tags and standards are developed. I know there are a lot of nice convenient WSIWYG editors out there, but I don't think this old dog will ever be comfortable not being able to scratch code.
