    I use Notepad++ for my html. It’s not fancy, but it’s nice :)

    I like (for the PC) Photofiltre for image editing. It is a little barebones compared to PhotoShop, but it does almost all of the things I want in a photo editor.

    Of course, for the Mac I’m using iPhoto, but I would love a more robust image editing tool.

    I just love your link roundups! Even when it’s not a subject I know much about, there’s always something for me to enjoy – thanks for the heads up about that neat-looking game!

    Dot – Thank you, I’m using Notepad++ right now. I mostly throw code around by hand but the one thing that I used Homesite for that Notepad++ doesn’t do (or doesn’t seem to, I’m still intalling plugins) is insert images with the height and width information already filled inside the image tag. The click insert image tag feature on Homeside saved me a lot of time. I also really liked Homesite’s tabbed instant preview, it helped me flip back and forth very quickly so that I could put descriptions under the images with minimal effort. I find assembling an image heavy how-to post without these things take a lot more effort.

    Which is all to say, I’m of wishing I’d bought a newer version of Homesite back when it was still available.

    Speaking of social networking, I still wonder why Myspace has taken such a backseat to Facebook and Twitter. It seems to have a lot of the features of the latter 2…

    Diy-Day: I think Myspace is messy looking and unappealing to the more adult set, and to the best of my understanding largely become a spot for bands.

    Ok, update on my Homesite replacement tool. I’m trying out TopStyle and it seems to have the features I like, not surprising coming to find that it was created by the same guy who created Homesite.
