Why write your HTML instead of...

First, see, by using View Source in the browser, what the basic code looks like in raw HTML, coded by manual writing of the HTML code.

Now check it out in these following HTML editors: (be sure to use View Source to see coding.)

MS Word save as HTML/WebPage
MS FrontPage
MS Publisher
Netscape Composer

My main argument against the editors is that they put in too much code for beginners or those not familiar with HTML.

  1. Editing becomes very complicated.
  2. The editor may not be available.
  3. Involves second step of FTP/Fetch.
I believe that one should become aware of the basic coding on HTML by doing it manually before undertaking any of the editors.
