Thread: Dreamweaver or Notepad

  1. #1
    I am starting on a couple of web sites.

    After much research on this site it seems to me a 50/50 split on wether Dreamweaver is best or using a text editor such as Notepad !

    Could some of you who use or recommend Dreamweaver point out some things I could do in Dreamweaver that I could not do in Notepad and Vice versa.

    Regards

    just use dreamweaver. notepad is cool for making small changes to documents but the syntax highlighting alone in dreamweaver should make it the tool of choice of these 2 at least.

    Notepad: you can't see your changes reflected immediately.

    Dreamweaver: you can.

    Dreamweaver knows syntax and tags n' stuff and it helps with auto complete, and helps when you're looking for something you don't quite remember the name of.

    Notepad: Google or bust.

    All-in-all: both. Dreamweaver can be handy, but it's not necessarily a complete replacement to the beauty and simplicity of notepad.

    I actually use both.

    Dreamweaver for page design and layout, and then notepad for small tweaks and changes, and the javascript, vbscript, etc.

    @SnnY - That looks cool, I might try that out

    I agree with Barbarossa...

    Dreamweaver or another WYSIWYG suite for design and layout and a serious text editor for small changes or coding (eg PHP)
    For text editing i personally use UltraEdit (sFTP support a big plus for me)

    text pad is good
    if you are new to it use dreamweaver as you can draw stuff on the page and it will genreate the html for you
