Posted May 06, 2004 in Markup.
I have always used ISO-8859-1, out of ignorance rather than choice. After reading some of the interesting stuff that Sam Ruby has to say about character encoding, I feel woefully ill-informed.
I'd like to experiment with Unicode, but I lack a markup editor that supports it (with the exception of Dreamweaver MX 2004, which I dislike). Can anyone recommend a basic markup editor that properly respects Unicode? It would need to have the following features:
- Windows platform
- Color syntax highlighting (markup languages, CSS, and PHP)
- Find and replace
- Multiple undo
- Multiple documents (perhaps with tabs)
- Some sort of file tree would be nice
What I certainly don't need is any kind of WYSIWYG crap. I like to hand code everything, all sorts of time-saving features will just get in the way. Any recommendations?
