    hello, i am new here and new to MAC and i do a lot of web design. my teacher in school turned me on t a good one called HTML kit by Chami, but i don't think it is compatible with my MAC.

    could you guys recommend me a good HTML editor along the same line as HTML kit? i really like HTML kit a lot and would like to find something that is along the same lines, or if there is something better please fill me in.

    thanks again for looking.

    was hoping to find something free, i'm a student and need to save all the money i can. Chami's HTML kit was free software, was kinda hoping to find something like that. thanks for the recommendation.

    Check out Komodo Edit, I find it very useful. I have dreamweaver, but often prefer to work in Komodo.

    See the stickies in this forum as well as using MRoogle as this is a very common discussion topic. I use BBEdit, but if you want free, TextWrangler is the free version of BBEdit.

    I am new to Mac as well and use Text Wrangler. Free and simple to use.

    I would recommend TextMate. .

    Does anyone here have an opinion of Coda? I just downloaded it and it seems pretty nice, haven't really had a chance to dig in much though.

    Excellent to hear. I've used DW before but it just seems so chunky. Lots of extra features that don't mean much to me. Coda just seems so easy and strait-forward.

    I like coding everything by hand, and Coda does that just fine. Espresso is also a good app and fairly comparable to Coda, but I personally like Coda better.

    I have friends who swear by TextMate, BBEdit, or TextWrangler. I think the phrase "to each his own" applies when talking about web development tools.

    I couldn't agree more. Start by downloading the free editors and see which one suits your fancy.
