Kompozer still fails

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 80.199.51.194] on April 23, 2008 12:11 AM
As a wysiwyg editor, I suppose Kompozer is as good as it gets for free, but it has one major flaw, which it has had since the nvu days, and -- according to the developers -- will still have in the future: it messes up the code. Even
 elements will be modified at the program's discretion, and other elements will fare the same way: you never know what will end up in the code, and even if one writes the code manually, the next time one looks, it will have changed. 
I've tried hard to like Kompozer and Nvu, but I can't recommend it, unfortunately.

If you want wysiwyg, there is no alternative to Dreamweaver. If you want a code editor, Quanta is tremendous. I use vim. End of story.
