All good websites begin life as an idea in the mind of their creators. Getting those ideas out into the world requires the use of an HTML editor. Selecting the proper editor is not a decision to be taken lightly. The editor you begin with will influence you in many subtle ways. You will begin to develop habits around the specific eccentricities of your editor.
If you are to spend any amount of time building websites your HTML editor will be where you spend a significant amount of time. If it doesn’t meet your needs or causes you frustration you are going to be miserable.
