A small, FAST, html editor w/built-in browser.


  • HTML-Ed is an editor for HTML code.
  • It is written completely in C.  As a consequence, HTML-Ed is FAST.
  • Good things come in small packages; the executable is only ~90k.
  • It is designed to be easily and quickly used with only the keyboard.
  • supports all the _common_ HTML 2.0 tags, as well as selected HTML 3.0 tags.
  • built-in browser (WebExplorer DLL's are required) for almost instantaneous testing.
  • supports multi-file editing via a ring-system.
  • supports REXX macros & adds over 50 new functions to the REXX language.

HTML-Ed v. 0.96b (21/7/1996, Ian Prest) Readme/What's new
v0.96b (July 21, 1996) ====================== NEW FEATURES: o added a "WebEx version" display in the about dialog (unfortunately, WebEx always seems to report v1.02). o Notebook "Other Options" dialog. o WebExplorer Window Options o Underline Anchors o Choose font and font size o Default Extension/Filespec Options (read the docs) o More Drag and Drop o Copy Drop (Ctrl+drag) a file to INSERT text at cursor o Drag & Drop options o Redefinable hotkeys! (Please read the documentation first!) o External processes o Nine processes available with hotkeys (more than one process can be assigned to the same hotkey, and they will execute in order). o any defined external processes available with a keyword/title. o run any other process from a pseudo command-line o program output piped into an output window o REXX Macro Interface! Over 50 extra functions! Make your own powerful extensions to HTML-Ed! Macros are run the same way an executable file is. o HTML-Ed Programmer's Manual (INF format). BUGS/PROBLEMS FIXED: o Only the first nine characters of the search/replace strings were used when searching. Fixed. o I significantly modified the code for several of the "tag" dialogs (IMG, BODY, HEAD, ANCHOR, HR, etc) in order to make them easier to maintain and extend. I may have accidentally introduced a bug or two, so be on the lookout for them. On the bright side, I did find the following bug in the existing code: o VSPACE used the HSPACE value. Fixed. o "Save ASCII" erroneously changed the current file's "filename" (but not in the title bar), causing every regular save afterwards to use the ASCII filename rather than the real filename. o I was using the Borland C++ file i/o routines in several places. Unfortunately, there appears to be a few bugs in them, as they were causing crashes when opening large numbers of files (>32). I'm now using OS/2 Dos* file i/o routines and the problems have disappeared. o When saving over a file using Save As EA's were saved and shouldn't have been.
