An HTML editor for beginners

Fresh HTML is a free HTML editor for people with next to no previous experience in hand-coding websites.

Ten years ago, creating a website was a complicated process. Knowledge of HTML, JavaScript, and other web design languages was almost always needed in order to make anything even remotely workable online. That's not really the case any longer, which is great for would-be web designers who don't have time to teach themselves every coding nuance out there.

Fresh HTML takes away that hassle and lets you design the website you've been envisioning, even without any knowledge of the process. The narrow right-hand program pane has a variety of different options you can click on to insert anything from an image to a complicated HTML table. Fresh HTML lets you define factors like width, height, and location on the web page.

The middle window pane on Fresh HTML gives you alternating views between what the page will end up looking like and what the actual HTML code you've inserted looks like. Fresh HTML's text view is also color-coded, making it even easier to see what's been inserted to make the page and where it's showing up, in terms of the actual coding. This is great for website makers who want to teach themselves a little bit about how the coding actually works.

Unfortunately, there's no dual pane view for the web page preview and HTML code page in Fresh HTML. If you want to look at both windows, you're forced to click between tabs to see them. For complete HTML beginners, Fresh HTML also does take a little time to get the hang of.

Fresh HTML doesn't come close to professional HTML editors, but for beginners it's great entry point to the world of website creation.
