WPD is one of the better web editors on the iPad, but it still is lacking a lot of features that are standard on web editors like: color coding of HTML and CSS, validators, tag completion, and search and replace. While a lot of these drawbacks are due to the nature of the iPad itself, it still makes it difficult to do more than spot editing of web pages. My biggest peeve with this application is that saving a file creates a new copy of that file. I have only been using is a short time, and I already have 10 copies of index.php and 4 of index.html — and they are all duplicates of each other.
