Development Tools

  • Leslie F. Sikos


Since modern markup elements and attributes are becoming more and more sophisticated, complex development software tools are used to generate web pages. Advanced text editors are fundamental programs in the toolbox of every web designer. Advanced text editors can be used for a variety of tasks, and provide very useful features such as syntax highlighting, line numbering, filters, uppercase-lowercase converters, spell checker, and so forth. They can also be integrated as the default editor of FTP clients, providing the option to directly edit files stored on the web server in an advanced environment. The implementation of Semantic Web technologies is efficient with semantic editors and reasoners. Markup correctors can be used to improve code quality. WYSIWYG editors and content management systems can be useful for rapid development; however, their code quality varies greatly.
