WebPad is a versatile HTML and text editor that offers features such as tag auto-completion, live spelling, and multi-language spell checking. It has a built-in previewing tool, Code Templates feature, and supports open/save to and from the Web. Its Color Translator is another useful tool.
The software comes with an integrated spell checker that features over 20 language and specialty dictionaries for easy download. With the Tags menu, you get quick keystroke access to the most common HTML tags while the Characters menu simplifies the process of inserting special characters.
WebPad is also designed to make web design and development easier. This is exemplified by its built-in Color Translator, which allows you to quickly convert between hex, RGB and HTML color notation and find the nearest 'web-safe' color. Additionally, the Pixel Picker make it easy to grab the color of any screen pixel. The software also includes a built-in web preview window that uses the Microsoft Internet Explorer control installed on your system, which provides easy previewing at a choice of common screen resolutions.
Another great feature of WebPad is that it allows you to define code snippets that can be inserted by typing a short keyword using the Code Templates option. The software’s folder bar also keeps your files and folders within easy reach for quick file-editing and image-previewing.
Intelligent word count options are also included, allowing you to ignore HTML tags and report the word count of any text selected in the document. All these features come together to make WebPad a great tool for web designers and developers of all levels.
