    Arrow Which one you'd choose??

    Hi everybody,,,
    there is a question that came into my mind, I don't know actually I wanted to know whither if i'm selecting the good tool for development. You know each one of us, ( web developer ) needs another tool with a good html capabilities that would help him in working with codes, for me I am an ASP.NET developer but to make the modifications to the html I use MS.Front Page XP for the html codes.


    - Classic ASP (I use MS. Front Page XP)
    - ASP.NET (Visual Studio, MS Front Page)
    - Javascript (MS. Front Page)


    what about everybody in here??

    Oh, Mike. They are fools! Stay away from Notepad. Choosing Notepad for ASP.NET development would be an extremely bad decision.

    Try to stick with Visual Studio for writing ASP.NET applications. MS have just released Visual Studio Web Developer 2005 -- you can download the BETA version for free. It is a fantastic IDE for writing Web Applications in any supported .NET language.

    HTML-Kit is a nice IDE for basic JavaScript and ASP 3.0 development. It has full support for both.

    Regards.

    I don't do asp.net, which is why notepad is perfect.

    I never mentioned anything about .net, when I said "everything" I meant HTML, CSS, JavaScript, ASP and PHP.

    I don't write any kind of asp, so I just use Bluefish. It's fine most of the time, but can sometimes slip up on syntax highlighting and can get a bit cludgy when you get around the 1000 lines mark and there's a lot of syntax highlighting going on at the same time.

    It's still foolish. It's like a carpenter using hand tools instead of power tools... If nothing else, get something with the bare minimums - line numbers, auto-indent, etc...

    A computer program will never produce web page and program source that is as neat and efficient as that created by a human being. Some programs create100 lines of output for something you can code yourself in 2 lines.

    I use CSE Validator. It is effectively notepad with colour coding and validation built in.

    I wasn't implying to let it write the code for you. I was simply saying that using a program designed for programming is the only logical choice.

    Notepad++ and Dreamweaver are both good.
