working html


I am currently trying to teach myself htlm. all of the books and videos for it are using windows and I'm not. Is there a notepad for ubuntu 11.10 that I can use to start learning html, and would it work the same as the instruction guides use for windows? If not what are some other books that will teachme how to use html on linux?
Thank you
Jonnynitro138

Html is html. Learning html will work whether your PC or the server holding the page (having html code to display the results) is in Windows, Linux, Unix any other.

So learn html by all means. But remember only in Windows are upper case and lower case identical while referring to web page or web site names. So be sure to be accurate and consistent in the html code that you write.

About notepad which you mention there are many similar and more advanced programs to create html code in linux.

OK

If you are using Ubuntu, as the icon in your post indicates, Gedit should do very well. In Gedit, go to View-->Highlight Mode-->Markup and there's an HTML mode.

About dot com offers an email tutorial on HTML and web design; it's a good, systematic introduction: http://webdesign.about.com/c/ec/75.htm

Thank you. what do you know about Komodo 7 or Komodo IDE? Are these some good soft ware to use and if so how do I install them?

I have never messed with Komodo, but Wikipedia has an article about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ActiveState_Komodo

If you want something free for Windows, I can also recommend HTML kit. It used to be free with for-pay enhancements, but now the previous version is offered at no charge and the current version is for-pay. It's been several years since I used it, but I was quite happy with it back in my Windows days.

Popular Linux editors include Bluefish, Kompozer (though it seems to have stalled), and any number of text editors such as Gedit and Kate that have HTML markup modes.

HTML is not demanding. Komodo would definitely be overkill for it. As Frankbell mentioned, Bluefish is a very good for HTML.
Having said that, I've always used emacs for any web-related code.

I use komodo edit mostly. It covers all my scripting needs for the moment. It has a few annoying things to it but I can deal with it. Just download komodo edit and install it system wide. It has very easy to follow instructions.


I also would like to throw this out here

They so far have given the most accurate and upto date information. This is were I've learned alot of html code and 1 thing I've learn is keep your design seperate from your structure. Another words HTML its a structure and css is your design. As a new web developer you may find this a little harder. Personally I'm not the artistic type so I now offically pay people to do my sites.

for just HTML gedit is your best bet

any standard text editor will do

now htmp mixed with php
or php mixed with html
or add in some java or perl ....

but on Linux gedit,kwrite or Vi
Vi is a nice editor but for the terminal
