BBEdit equivalency?

On the Mac, if I need to munge text in extremis, I prefer to use BBEdit. Recently, on the PC, I am finding myself in need of a text editor which is similar to BBEdit. I will use it both for coding and for text-cleaning. I prefer freeware and shareware but that's by no means the deciding factor. Which programs should I check out? Which should I avoid? [more inside]

A site I created in FrontPage is shown updated in IE but not Firefox, on several computers.

I created a web page using FrontPage (no snarks, please) and put it online. IE shows the new, updated web page. However, Mozilla and Firefox show the old web page. I thought it was just a cache problem with me, but I've loaded it on several different computers with the same result. How can I fix this?

Is There a "Diff" for HTML That'd Save the Spent Resources for a Full Page Reload?

On community blog sites like Metafilter, a lot of bandwidth seems to be consumed by redundant requests like previewing comments or checking for new ones where the entire page is reloaded. So when in the thread on Google Maps, mosch mentioned the HTTPRequest javascript object, that got me thinking. Are there any ways to write code that can cut down on resending the same data. Some kind of 'diff' method for HTML?

How to send an HTML newsletter via email

I need to send an HTML-newsletter via e-mail. I have it ready as an html file, but need a good program to turn it into an email and send it. It would be nice if I could also insert an alternative plain-text (with links. if that's possible). Not sending it as HTML is not an option (client's wishes, etc.). I only need to send 1 copy of it, so mass sending isn't an issue. I am on XP Pro.

What web-based aggregators should I grant permission to in my .htaccess file?

After installing an .htaccess file to prevent direct image-linking, one of my readers pointed out that the alternate replacement image I specified was showing up in my Bloglines feed. Are there other popular web-based aggregators I should grant permission to in my .htaccess file? And does an .htaccess file prevent images from showing up in software-based RSS readers, or just web-based?

how to display image files on a web page

Windows Explorer has an option to display all the image files in a folder in "filmstrip" mode, which looks like this. I want to create a similar method of display on a web page. I figure I'll have to (unfortunately) use frames to create the bottom gallery of thumbnails and have it scroll like that but I would rather not have to create a separate page for each full-size picture. I would rather the page displaying the picture be dynamic and just change the picture rather than refer the browser to a different file. I figure this could be done with some scripting language (PHP?) but I don't know much about that sort of thing. Can anyone help me out? [+] [more inside]

Importing contents of one HTML file into another, from a CD?

Plain old HTML: is there any way to get the contents of HTML file A into HTML file B without using frames, iframes, PHP or other server side stuff (it's for on a cd), and just copy-pasting the contents of one into the other?

HTML issues

HTML crisis: I use relative URLS on my blog because pages archive in different files- for example, a tag for a JPEG would be /images/image.jpg inside image tags. Because I use that first slash to make the relative URL work, all image tags are broken when you type or link to my site without a "www" in the url. In other words, "www.mysite.com" shows all the images fine, but "mysite.com" loads the site with little red x's everywhere. Solution? [more inside]

Solutions for In-Program Help and Demos for Health Industry Backend Apps?

I have been asked to develop in-program help and demos for an IT company (working in the Health Industry, backend stuff).

a) For the help system, what's the best approach? I know there's windows help format, html help and other (more) proprietary stuff, but have no experience with any of them (I have plenty of experience with HTML, CSS and Flash). What help format / application would you choose? Portability and easy updating are pluses. End users will be mostly on Windows.

b) For the demos I'm thinking RoboDemo, but wonder if there's anything easier, or opensource, or some other reason to choose it instead of R.D?

how do I build web pages people can annotate

WebDesign: CSS and FireFox

So I have this home page. It looks pretty good (which is to say, it looks like I intended) in Safari, and passable in Internet Explorer. But in FireFox the CSS completely dissapears for some reason, so everything just comes up in a big unstyled pile. So in trying to find out why this is, which I have not done, I came to wonder: Is there a place on the web that has information about the differnces between browsers and how they render various bits of HTML, CSS and so on?

Managing JAlbum

I know, I know -- not another web photogallery AskMe question, but: I've actually settled on the gallery itself. I'm using JAlbum. Having made the choice, though, I'm left with two questions:

1. JAlbum makes nice galleries, but doesn't create a top-level index page. (I could hand-code it, but my wife will be doing most of the updating and I don't want her to have to go mucking around in HTML.) The easiest solution, I'd think, would be just to reformat the directory listing into something attractive -- all I really need to communicate to the user is descriptive folder names and upload dates, but I'd prefer to make something more handsome than the standard Apache page. Can anyone recommend a particular PHP file system manager or other solution?

2. JAlbum's auto upload is ridiculously slow -- better just to FTP it. When JAblum makes a gallery, though, it includes a lot of stuff I'm not using -- icon sets, borders, etc. It's not a ton of space, but I'm going to uploading a lot of these galleries, and it'll add up. Is there a programmatic way I can stop JAlbum from including all this, instead of weeding it out before each upload? (I'm using the BluPlusPlus skin.)

Software to debug HTML

It would be nice if there was some favelet, firefox extension, or web-based app that would 1) scrape an html page for all the spans and ids on the page 2) compare this list to the stylesheet and 3) point out the elements that aren't in use any longer.

CSS Spacers

Hey, CSS Cowboys - spacer help needed! Look here. This is a simple box with three different backgrounds in three fields with no content; the first two need to be exactly 100 pixels tall, and the last one needs to be 200 pixels tall. I am making this happen with transparent spacer .gifs, but I want to eliminate them, if possible. I've tried a couple of things (spacer tag, fer example) that work in Mozilla but not IE; and a couple of things that work in IE (span tags with height declaration, fer example) but not in Mozilla. Padding doesn't work well in either for exact spacing. Can you help me conquer space, the final frontier?

Website Builders

This is kind of an embarassing question. Is there any decent cheap or shareware software for building basic websites? I know how to edit HTML pretty well, and even tinker with CSS to get it to do what I want, but I don't know how page structure/architecture really works. I want to build a very basic website where I can have an inaccessible image/media folder (to serve to my Blogger-hosted blog, which I'll eventually migrate to a subdomain) and just a few pages of text. All I get from the controls where my domain name is hosted (GoDaddy) is an IP address and a login. After that it's up to me, evidently.
