Yep — I like Gedit. It's just nice.

this thread still going, huh? well in any case, ive been using the linux equivalent of notepad (with code highlighting)...gedit.
Gedit is actually pretty sweet. Simple and with a very nice code highlighter.

Well yeah, IE6-IE8 are universally hated by all web devs..

I'm fairly sure that putting a link around a span or div is valid nowadays, are you using the html5 doctype?

<!doctype html>

TBH I don't have any trouble getting a valid website (although older versions of IE manage to *bleep* it up), except for one issue which getting an entire div or span to be a link. The only valid way (other than using JavaScript, which I want to avoid incase people don't use it) is to place a floated div inside it that links, but the problem is that some browsers place the non-linked text in front of the linked div.

harbin91, websites don't necessarily need to validate perfectly (although it's a very good indicator of how well you've coded your site), but you can't say that they don't need to adhere to standards, the rules are there to ensure that your site is future proof and will work across all the browsers.

Imagine if you hired a builder to fix your roof and they did a shoddy job but then said "Oh don't worry, I haven't done it to the industry standard but it'll be a couple of years until it collapses!", you wouldn't be happy.

Developers who say "It isn't coded properly but it works, so whatever" are bad developers.

And if you absolutely don't know any HTML but still want your own site then either learn some, get someone else to do it for you or use something like Wordpress.

Your assuming some people bother to adhere to standards, from some developers points of view, if the website works without passing verification, there is no issue. Neoseeker itself fails tons of XHTML and CSS rules.

From an end users point of view, WYSIWG editors are there for people who don't know HTML.

You could try and use Kompozer for creating websites but honestly I can't stand the program, you cannot code CSS out by hand in that...

Try to avoid WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editors, they often produce very bad code, try to do the code yourself and your website will be more compliant to standards.

Real men use Notepad++ Vim.

For a College project we had in 1st year we used Notepad++. Its not amazing but it has a few addons which can help. Can I ask why you want to build it online as opposed to in a text file?
