Sorry I misunderstood your question. I thought you were looking for an education site.

I highly recommend Webstorm. It is an amazing tool that even at times can guess your code and give you suggestions on what is next and you just click and it inserts for you. It's a really great asset and allows you to keep things organized and easy to read. It'll color code everything for you.

That sounds great - like a kind of bridge between being an html beginner and an html expert.

What might also be a neat workflow (locally, not dependent on a 3rd party website which are often a bit slow) is to use VS Code with this plugin https://marketplace.visualstudio.com...html-previewer which allows you to see your results straight away. I think there might be some more, too.

Alternatively, open it in the browser and use something like LiveReload to instantly see results. instantly-ish anyway. I think that one's paid, but, should be others.

Off course, that might be a few steps too far still, . Do yourself a favor though, don't use Notepad for editing.

If you are hand-coding HTML, get Notepad++ which helps a ton with organizing stuff (it's open source). It has way better control over tabs and color-coding stuff etc.

It also does things like saving both a .txt and .html file at the same time, open files in browsers from the menu, auto-completing html ending tags, etc. Basically, it completely replaces Notepad.

Has Dreamweaver gotten any better? Or does it still write shit for code?

^That was why I learned how to hand-code HTML/CSS... Granted, that was a few years back, but it felt like I was spending as much time correcting/optimizing the generated code as I would have spent writing it from scratch...

It was still writing shit for code when I had to help my niece set it up for a school assignment last year. I have never shuddered so hard.

Sublime has a lot of color settings to chose from, you'll find something that suits you.

I had to use Dreamweaver for my HTML course in Uni which only slightly worked on their Mac and was a complete clusterfuck on Windows.

I've been using Sublime now to practice and have GitHub Desktop.
