This HTML editor's most distinctive feature is the ability to display Web pages in either Internet Explorer or the increasingly popular Firefox (and the Mozilla browser on which Firefox is based). To take advantage of the Firefox/Mozilla functionality, however, you must download a separate plug-in and register it in a DOS window. A DOS window! Nevertheless, HippiePro provides several wizards for setting up pages and style sheets. It includes a bushel of HTML tags in a convenient pull-down menu, and it offers a wealth of options, including spell-checking and a simple FTP client. We just wish HippiePro were more intuitive. It doesn't even let you jump to a line of code by clicking an object in the Web page preview. Nor is it a WYSIWYG editor, so rookies should choose something easier for their first pages. Don't let the groovy name fool you. HippiePro is for seasoned Web designers only.
