Freeware App #3.5 – Taco HTML Edit

Taco Logo

Notepad’s great isn’t it? The best HTML editing tool there is on Windows. So when I took over a Mac suite I thought we’d start off our Year 8 HTML unit with Textedit – the OS X equivalent.

Except that it was a disaster. Textedit appears to try and act as a WYSIWYG editor – so the tags all appeared onscreen but didn’t actually do anything. So I had to find an alternative – Taco HTML Edit. This great little app is like a programming IDE for HTML. Tag colouring, live preview, it does absolutely everything I need to make this a damn site more accessible for 12 year olds.
