BestAddress HTML Editor, by Multimedia Australia, is a multi-function editor with both a text editor for hand writing code and a WYSIWYG visual editor. Many experienced developers start with a WYSIWYG to design the layout and then switch to the text editor for detailed work. Novices will find the drag-and-drop abilities easier to use while the additional HTML text editor gives those wanting to learn code a better idea of what proper coding should look like. BestAddress offers some of the best features of both worlds.
BestAddress HTML Editor has a strong set of features, including features you won't typically find in HTML editors. For instance, most HTML editors are either WYSIWYG or text editors, not both. The ability to switch back and forth between both modes, which BestAddress allows you to do, is a boon to advanced and beginning designers. Syntax highlighting makes it easy to hand code. Text changes colors when a line of code is written correctly.
The look of the workspace of BestAddress HTML Editor is fairly intuitive; users of Microsoft Office will find the navigation familiar, with only a few new icons. Tooltips, or pop-ups that appear when the mouse hovers over an icon, provide explanations of each icon, help shorten the learning curve for this particular program. One particular features that makes BestAddress HTML Editor easy to use is that, even in the text editor, users can take advantage of the WYSIWYG's drag-and-drop feature, dragging and dropping lines of pre-written code.
Links within the program suggest you can contact support personnel for questions, but all support links are directed to an email contact form. However, the in-program manual provides a good beginning introduction to creating websites and HTML coding. The newsletter also provides value, covering most topics a webmaster would need to build, upload, promote and market their website.
BestAddress HTML Editor gives good value; it's a feature-rich application. Advanced developers may find it lacking in terms of help and support but may be surprised by the features this HTML editor has. For beginning users, it's a good transition platform for learning HTML and building your own websites.
