Hey Guys -

Any of you know of a site or a program (preferably free or shareware) that a person can copy and paste their HTML code into in order to check it out to see how it looks?

Sorry to bother you, but I'm trying to help someone out and I don't know what to tell him (yes, he's on a Mac, BTW) but I know that there ARE programs out there.

Thanks!

(IBTL!)

Uhm. Simply open the html file in your browser. It shows how it looks.

Yeah, but there are programs that do it also, aren't there? Like at VersionTracker.

SubEthaEdit lets you preview your HTML. If you leave the preview open it even updates it live as you type. Command-R to open the preview, I believe.

Thanks everyone! nonhuman, thanks to you too.

Actually, I remembered what I wanted: Tumult HyperEdit. Love that program.



I had a brain fart and couldn't remember it for anything and then when I downloaded SubEthaEdit I remembered.

Hmm, never used HyperEdit. Maybe I'll check it out. Currently I use SubEthaEdit for all my ...everything (HTML, PHP, Python, Bash, &c.).

Woah, just downloaded HyperEdit. I love how it does the PHP previewing (the one feature I wish SubEthaEdit had). I'm not such a fan of the interface though. Undo has some funky behavior too. But I think I'll hang on to it and try using it out with some of the HTML/PHP work I'll be doing tomorrow.

You can also use Microsoft Word.
