    "Does Its Job Well"

    March 30, 2008  |   By wjreynolds

    Version: Taco HTML Edit 1.6

    Pros

    Taco HTML Edit is straightforward and fast, and does what it says it will. The interface is clean and intuitive.

    Cons

    The fault lies not with our stars, or Taco HTML Edit, but with ourselves: Having grown up with WYSIWYG web-authoring tools, I miss not having a built-in preview layer, rather than jumping to the browser to see if I did what I meant to do. But that's just me!

    "FINALLY!! Something for the rest of us."

    Version: Taco HTML Edit 1.7.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Thank you! Not everyone is a Web Designer but in today's world, we still have to use HTML now and then. Developers and Web Designers who write HTML all day forget about the rest of us who just need a little simple help now and then. I'm a songwriter but I understand why people want simple programs to play with music even if they can't play concert piano! - same thing!

    Taco HTML Edit, fits the bill perfectly! Easy to use, elegantly designed - you'll be up and running within 2 minutes.

    THANK YOU!!

    Summary

    I can only say this as a total dumbhead when it comes to coding...but this app has made all my efforts much easier...!! I have edited lots of HTML and PHP using this and it is simplea and easy and offers lots of nice features like the Quick Insert menu and a bunch of other cool stuff -- for beginners like me as well as for experienced users...!!

    It may not be such a killer application as BBedit, but it has everything most people may need...and it's free...!!

    (A localized German version would be nice though... ;)

    "Great For Beginners or Pro site tweaking"

    October 8, 2006  |   By DocMacPS

    Version: Taco HTML Edit 1.7.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I help alot of clients get a basic web site up and going as an Apple Computer Consultant. This program is simple enough for novice website / Macintosh users to grasp within 15 minutes and start editing thier own basic HTML with - whether for a personal home page or small business site. All other programs are waaaay to complex, or present too many choices. Newbies can get started as if just using a Word Processing program!

    The Syntax checker and Organize Tags features alone are a godsend to write readable, clean code. I use it to manage all my Apple support sites on a daily basis. I may use templates or Rapid Weaver to get a site structure built, then exclusively use TACO to do all the rest. The ONLY HTML editor I need, gosh if it had a simple FTP option built in, I'd be in heaven. GREAT software regardless. Shawn 'Rusty' Smith : DoctorMac Palm Springs

    "Not as good as BBEdit, but much cheaper (ie free)."

    July 31, 2006  |   By Hoverthrone

    Version: Taco HTML Edit 1.6

    Pros

    -Has all the features you're realistically going to need to edit HTML or PHP.

    -Has the word "taco" in the title

    Cons

    -Doesn't display the line number; the only way to navigate to a specific line is to hit ctrl+L.

    -Doesn't remember how you had the window sized the last time you opened the program.

    -Uses word wrapping instead of horizontal scrolling.

    -Cannot actually be eaten
