[Lvlug] Mozilla and WYSIWYG HTML editors
Mon, 27 Nov 2000 07:26:56 -0500
Yes, I'm looking for WYSIWYG HTML (and SGML) editors.
Just to build on your comments, when I use one, I use Amaya 3.0 under
Windows. (I'd like to use it all the time as my normal Web browser, but
it has a few problems. One of the things I like to do with an HTML
editor is, when I see errors or have comments on a Web site, I load it
into Amaya, make my comments, save a copy locally, and then Email it to
the "owner" of the Web site. Ideally, he can look at it with a diff and
see the changes. (Maybe even more ideally, I'd do a diff and just send
him the diff.)) After I switch to Linux, I'll learn how to do things
like this and even have scripts to help me.
I downloaded Amaya 4.0 but there were some problems so I stuck with
3.0. (I don't remember the problems right now, and they might have been
Amaya has the virtue of being fairly small. I don't remember any more
how big the download was, maybe around 3 meg?
I don't even want to ask how big the Mozilla download would be.
