"Clumsy to use"

Great ideas like being able to incorporate favorite CSS editors.
Wonderful to have the W3Cvalidating available from the menu
Like having a "project" that dials in the correct directory
F11 external preview is handy
Any kind of spell checking is better than none
The support actually responds in a reasonable time, it even clearly pointed out a solution to a problem.


Key features are erratic. *Sometimes* I can shell out to a favorite CSS editor (but not to operate on a selected document). I can never shell out to my Perl editor or a competent JavaScript editor. So why have Tools/Applications or Preferences/Applications (add) if other software can't be tied in to make a real Site crafting environment?
Only heaven knows what "features" like "Check Website Project Dependencies" "Site Spider" or "Code Cleaner" really do.
Merely vomiting a crippled version of the Windows directory into the navigation pane isn't much more useful than actually using Windows explorer where your tools are in fact associated with the displayed files. The directory inside HTML Editor is really a straight jacket compared to working on the desk top with a far broader range of tools at your disposal. For example sometimes you can drag a file out, sometimes you can't -- weird!
The "my way or the highway" hubris that infects the design of this editor gets tedious fast.


Nice idea but the implementation isn't very deft. The OS interface seems shaky judging by how the navigation in HTML editor works.

In the end it's not a tool for people fluent in HTML looking for a solid reliable work-a-day tool.

That said, should Coffee Cup decide to finish the software, HTML Editor has remarkable potential to fill an important niche as the vital tool for fluent HTML users At the moment I for one head back to my old reliable tools (and dated -- DzSoft's deceptively simple WebPad ) when it comes time to make a living.

"Will not stand behind product"

Used to work and I used to be able to use it.


My html editor is not working and coffee cup tech support not only refuse to help me unless I buy a newer version of the software, but they banned me from the support website so I can't even download a new copy of what I own if I needed one.


I came to cnet and I found out the new software they want me to buy isn't even a what you see is what you get editor anymore. I would not recommend anyone buy this software. If you do, in a short time, they will refuse to support it.

"Not the WYSIWYG editor it used to be! Clumsy!"

Lots of features


Raw html editing function only! No visual editor available.


This used to be a great Visual Editor (WYSIWYG) that allowed you to work in real time to visually create what you wanted. In the newest versions they completely done away with the Visual Editor. It is completely beyond any rational argument why they did this. Let me state this as clear as I possibly can here so that the creators of this program get it. PEOPLE THAT KNOW HOW TO READ AND WRITE HTML DO NOT NEED A PROGRAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ARRGGGG!!! It is so stupid! People that know how to read and write HTML coding prefer to use Windows Notepad. They don't want or need (and actually have quite a bit of disdain for) a program that write code for them.

Those of us that don't know how to read and write code need a Visual Editor. Why in the freaking world would you do away with the only thing that made your program useful to the common user? Your stupid instant preview pane is pitiful and clumsy at best. The user is still forced to try to edit the html manually and if they don't know how to read html, they are forced to use trial and error to get things right. What a stupid idea. And to think, you actual think this is worth money.

Bring back the visual editor or go out of business.
