Hi,

Does anyone know a good plain text editor? I did a web site for years using an old version of Word. Enjoied it because worrd has a spell check. Now I use Word 2000 and I cannot save correctly. I don't like notepad only due to the spell check.

Thanks for any advice...Also looking for cheep to free.

Everone one has their favorites so you may get a good list here. I've used a WYSIWYG Editor like NVU and Word 2000. Micro$oft has a download, I believe, that strips out the Markup language used in the document by Word if you want to have a clean save as a HTML document. Never used it so cannot comment more on it.

I use MatrixY2K2005 by CrystalFibers.com as my editor (free). It does not have a spell check, but there are many online sites which offer free use of a spell checker tool. Matrix supports PHP, CSS, HTML, has a Code Inside utility, highlighter utility and more.

There's also Stone's WebWriter and Hippie98, all free. All have their pros and cons.

Good luck finding one you like.

I'd try out Notepad++. It's a nifty little proggy that supports about 20 different languages. Here's the link:

I prefer EditPad as it has tabbed pages...

It doesn't have a spell checker, but that just forces me to make sure my code is right before I publish anyway.
