If you have spent any time at all writing web pages, you know the frustration of writing and not being able to see what the page looks like. So you need to save once in a while, open your index file and view the results of your HTML. This takes time and if you are using tables or vertically arranged images and elements, you need to know that you have everything where it belongs.
The simple way to do this is to use one of the many free HTML editors. This is a simple downloadable program that lets you do a lot of work in a short period of time. After you get the program on your computer, you can copy and paste the HTML of any or all of your pages into the editor. Now you are able to work on your pages and not worry about publishing a mistake-ridden document.
An HTML editor lets you place elements on your page that you would normally have to program yourself. Things like dropdown menus, tables, sidebars, forms and more are at your fingertips. The best part is that you do not have to write one single character of HTML for any of it; the editor does it for you. You simply choose the element you want, add the values and the rest is magic.
Entering the main body text is a snap with an HTML editor. Just write the text and you can change the style, size or color of any word of it at any time. Sort of like the way you do it in a Word document. The whole thing is designed so that anyone can create dynamic, eye-catching web pages quickly.
Now, after you get all the elements in the right places, all you have to do is copy the code and paste it into the corresponding page file on your site. All web hosts give their members access to a set of tools and options for managing their pages. In there somewhere is a file manager. This is where your pages are stored in a way that lets you view the HTML, change it and republish your page(s).
Aside from those amazing benefits, there is another one that cannot be ignored. Many of the editors available let you actually SEE the results of your HTML in a split screen view. One side has the HTML entry area and the other displays the code as it appears to visitors. This allows you to correctly place your web page elements where you want them the first time.
Remember that HTML is primarily a display language, so being able to use the editor this way greatly increases your productivity. Rather than having to type all those tags and attributes, you just tell the editor what you want and it applies the HTML for you. In addition, it writes the proper syntax so you don’t have to worry about broken or bad HTML.
Your white space is also optimized so loading time is not adversely affected either.
All of these benefits are yours for a free download of an HTML editor. You have everything to gain and nothing at all to lose, folks. Get one soon and turn out pages like a pro.
