Editors' Review

Taco HTML Edit is a Mac-only HTML and PHP editor, a good compromise between free editors and more-powerful (and expensive) Web development apps.

Taco HTML Edit's main window provides a relatively spare, streamlined hand-coding environment, with a toolbar that lets you save, print, find, batch find, preview, live preview, and insert special characters from a drop-down menu. You can also access Taco HTML Edit's Component Library from here, a relatively new addition to the program that gives you quick access to 22 ready-to-plug-in, cross-browser-tested components--everything from an image carousel to a scrolling, fixed-height table. These components vary in usefulness and sexiness: you may never want to insert background music on a site, and you might not need a component for inserting a simple link, but the components for features like accordion controls and tabbed panes can be a godsend.

Each component pulls up a separate window that lets you adjust settings for the component; buttons let you toggle between preview and source views (a feature that also happens to make Taco HTML Edit an excellent learning tool, since you can make minor changes and then see how that change affects the code). Taco HTML Edit also includes many other features you'd expect from a good editor, including syntax coloring (for HTML, PHP, CSS, and JavaScript), syntax checking, code completion (for HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP), solid previewing capabilities, and a system for handling frequently used pieces of codes.

Whether you're using it as a debugger or as a complete hand-coding solution, Taco HTML Edit offers a lot of tools in an easy-to-use interface, all at a reasonable price.
