BIG NEWS! (For me anyway.) KompoZer
The first web site editor I used was Frontpage. (Don’t throw rocks at me!) I have since used Dreamweaver, and many other WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML editors… and yes, I am also a REAL man, I use a plain text editor to code in raw HTML. But come on… you secretly sometimes DO use a WYSIWYG editor, don’t you?!? (I thought so!) Anyway, I have tried a lot of HTML WYSIWYG editors… and I was SUPER EXCITED when Nvu was released! Finally, an editor that could give the Evil Empire a run for it’s money, and it was Open Source as well! YAY!
But. You knew there would be one, huh? Nvu has a nasty habit of adding in blank lines to its code! ARRRRRRRGGGGHHH! So, recently (maybe not news to you, but it was to me) I found KompoZer! KompoZer, it seems is the UN-official update to Nvu… and… ta-da! And, it fixes the blank line issue! HOORAY!
Thanks for letting us know. I’ll check it out. BTW, do you know anything about MS’s supposed replacement for FrontPage?
Microsoft is replacing Frontpage with Expression Web if you don’t use their Sharepoint platform, or Sharepoint Designer if you do use Sharepoint. Here’s a link to Expression Web:
