German term or phrase: Looking for WYSIWYG HTML editor
I am looking for a "what you see is what you get" HTML editor that runs on Win95
or less . The editor should let me type in new text (the translation) on the screen that displays it with all formatting and MUST NOT mess up other aspects of the HTML code.

Netscape composer is close, but it adds lines of code (meta tags) and shuffles comments around, which make the result unacceptable to my client.

Word's HTML converter also makes changes in the way the source code looks.

HyperPad leaves the code alone, but does not permit editing in WYSIWYG view, only in source view.

Thanks for any help,

Ed C.

It says underneath:
Sinnegmäß: Vorschau. Sie sehen das, was Sie gedruckt erhalten. Art der Bildschirmdarstellung, die dem späteren Druckbild entspricht.
All the best,

Assuming ths isnt a translation request ;-) look no further than Dreamweaver, its the only WYSIWYG editor I know that leaves the markup fairly straight. I personally hate WYSIWYG editors, exactly because they do what they think is good not what I think is good. If youre looking for a text editor my fave is Arachnophilia (and its almost free, too)
