As part of my molasses Wamp server and Website Baker and MySQL and Alpha5 and Navicat and this and that project I realize I need to do some straight HTML coding. I am a programmer of sorts (RPG on iSeries mostly) so theoretically all that is cake. In practice .. well. we shall see.
I saw the HTMLPro special today on Bits .. and I know we have lots of other editors mentioned. Decisions, decisions. While it is not the most advanced, I see that the HTMLPro is sweet in the color coding and formatting dept, good for beginner-intermediates.
Now I really have one simple kindergarten question to start.
A lot of the material I bring into the editor will already have format from an email or forum, maybe RTF. Color, height, bold, italics (conceivably fonts, but not important). I know some webforums will take the paste and hold the formatting very nicely. (Not an issue here because we are Plain Sam.) And with an on/off toggle for the mode.
So I want my HTML editor to receive such RTF paste input without intermediate steps, or minimal. Do they all do that ? None ? How about HTMLPro ? (I tried a quick test and did not see how.) What would they call it ?
Any help appreciated, since I am considering the big $18 purchase. If you want to mention the many excellent editor products fine, although we could bump up one of the editor threads for that.
Any help appreciated.
