I must admire the functions of Notepad++. It is one of the best Html Editors available to webmasters and new web developers and coders. The biggest plus point of it is highlighting or to be more precise syntax highlighting. This particular feature gives Notpad++ the power to work with any type of document that is text based. Even though I have tried most text editors, the beauty of it is something very different from those.
Although most of the publishing platforms today offer friendly user interface and simple graphic layouts, sooner or later you will need to get your hands on some code.
Updating or editing the Html or the CSS as your own is the perfect way to get your blog customized, as you always thought of, and to have complete control over the feel and look of your blog. It also enables you to add more functionality such as social bookmarking buttons, advertising and the likes.
Everyone has a feeling that the easiest and perhaps the most efficient way to change the code is by using a simple text editor like the Windows Notepad.
Notepad++ is as simple as the traditional Notepad, but it comes packed with many useful features, some of them to mention:
- Syntax Highlighting and Syntax Folding
- User Defined Syntax Highlighting
- Regular Expression Search/Replace supported
- Full Drag and Drop supported
- Dynamic position of Views
- File Status Auto-detection
- Zoom in and zoom out
- Multi-Language environment supported
- Brace and Indent guideline Highlighting
- Macro recording and playback
Note: I'm not an affiliate or official sponsor of Notepad++. I liked the features provided by it and thought of sharing it with all old and new coders. I have the feeling, by doing this I am offering to Notepad++ in return.
