Homesite 4 is a powerful and intuitive HTML editor that has earned the loyalty of professional web designers around the globe. Before this version, Homesite was one of the best text based website editors, but with its addition of drag-and-drop WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editing, this classic editor is rapidly becoming a choice of both professional and those who are just building their first website. Homesite attaches the WYSIWYG feature by conveniently adding a third tab, called Design, to the program's code/browser preview window. You can expect the same lineup of great tool tabs (all of which can be hidden) at the top, along with wizards for Page Start, Tables, Frames, Stylesheets, and Javascript. The Style sheets wizard is one of the best I have ever seen, because it is powerful but still easy to use, with an amazing depth of configurability. One especially handy feature in Homesite is the Tag Insight button, which tells the editor to take an educated guess at what tag or attribute you'll want next (e.g., the ALIGN attribute pops up after you insert a new paragraph tag). This feature proved to be a real time saver and in my opinion is very useful. My only complaint about Homesite is that due the abundance of features and functions it can run sluggishly at older computers. One more great thing about this program is that it now comes with a large, but very well-written help documentation, which includes informative sections on HTML tags and Web page design.
