If you're going to build a website from scratch, or write most any other code, you're going to need a text editor. While you may think that you and Microsoft Word are joined at the hip, using your favorite word processor just won't get you where you need to be in the world of coding. The stuff that makes that Word DOC look all pretty is the same thing that will keep your web page or C++ source file from doing what it needs to do. For that kind of thing, you need to drop the pretty formatting and get straight to the text itself.

Arachnophilia is a web page development tool as well as an editor for general programming use. It's got syntax highlighting, so it's easier to see what's going on in your code, and it's smart enough to know how to deal with HTML as well as PHP, JavaScript, Python, Perl, and all the rest. Various toolbars make it easy to insert HTML elements into your web page, and for those items not included, it also features a robust macro language that lets you define your own shortcuts and helps speed you along on your way to web page nirvana.

Written in Java, Arachnophilia should run on any system that has the appropriate version of the Java runtime. The version targeted for Windows has an installer, but putting it on your Mac or Linux system shouldn't cause you too much trouble.
