What version are you reviewing? 

HTML-Kit Tools

My Review 

Pros

* Code Navigator - love to be see variables

* Code Folding - just work on what you want to work on

* Excellent support from the author of the software via Web or Usenet.

* Image Insert - browse images and have attributes put in automatically

* Color chooser - can't remember the hex for Old Lace? No problem.

Cons

* Does not natively use HTML-Kit build 292 plugins - but they can be remade

* Takes a minute to find all the new features

* Documentation on new features is slim to none - but Chami is happy to tell all in the forums

* No way to chose icon size

* Plenty of changes can be made under the hood, but that could be confusing for some users.

I have been a loyal user of HTML-Kit build 292 for about 10 years. I first heard about it when I found out it had the HTML Linter, HTML-Tidy, integrated in it. But I was looking for something that would give me more, like the ability to save projects. That was when I finally decided to try HTML-Kit Tools. What a joy! Build 292 with extra features that make server side coding a breeze. Very easy to see if there is a mistake, like not closing an element, not ending a statement correctly, etc. Love the code folding, and being able to walk through the code easily. This is definitely an editor for a developer, it is not a WYSIWYG, but even for someone who does not know HTML/CSS, there is code completion. There are lots of new features that I have not played with yet, but they look good and very useful. Definitely recommend this software for the developer who wants control over functions and not canned functions like mm_whatever.

Would you recommend this to a friend? 

Yes
