List of HTML editors

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following is a list of HTML editors.

Source code editors[edit]

Source code editors evolved from basic text editors, but include additional tools specifically geared toward handling code.

WYSIWYG editors[edit]

HTML editors that support What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) paradigm provide a user interface similar to a word processor for creating HTML documents, as an alternative to manual coding.[1] Achieving true WYSIWYG however is not always possible.

Word processors[edit]

While word processors are not ostensibly HTML editors, the following word processors are capable of editing and saving HTML documents. Results will vary when opening some web pages.[2]

WYSIWYM editors[edit]

WYSIWYM (what you see is what you mean) is an alternative paradigm to WYSIWYG, in which the focus is on the semantic structure of the document rather than on the presentation. These editors produce more logically structured markup than is typical of WYSIWYG editors, while retaining the advantage in ease of use over hand-coding using a text editor.

Discontinued editors[edit]

Editors that have been discontinued, but may still be in use or cited on published web pages
