The HTML editor included in EditRocket includes many tools and features to aid in HTML development. See below for information on the HTML specific tools offered by EditRocket.

See the General Highlights section at the bottom of the page for more of what EditRocket has to offer.

Also, see the JavaScript and CSS editor pages for information on those features.

HTML Editor

HTML Validator

Quickly determine if your HTML code is valid with the HTML Validator. The validator allows users to validate HTML using the W3C HTML validator tool. Users can validate the text editor contents, or validate a URL. The results of the validation are then displayed to the user. For more information, see the following HTML Validator

HTML Tag Builder

With EditRocket, there is no need to memorize all of the HTML tags and their attributes. The HTML Tag Builder handles this for you. The tag builder includes a drop down list of all HTML tags, and gives the user the ability to select the attributes of the tag, such as event attributes, style attributes, etc. Once the tag and attributes are selected, the Tag Builder inserts the tag into the text editor. For more information, see the following: HTML Tag Builder

HTML Entity Selector

With EditRocket, there is no need to sift through HTML specs to find what various entity codes are. The HTML Entity Selector tool gives users the ability to select either the character or numeric values for HTML entities and insert those values into the text editor. For more information, see the following: HTML Entity Selector


Beautify your HTML code with the HTML Tidy tool. The tidy tool allows users to format their HTML code using the W3C Tidy tool. For more information, see the following: HTML Tidy

HTML Sidekick

Code more quickly with the HTML Sidekick. The sidekick allows users to quickly insert common HTML constructs into the editor. These constructs include HTML doctypes and common HTML tags. The sidekick also displays a clickable list of HTML utilities such as encoding URLs and decoding URLS, wrapping selections in tags, and converting selections to Hyperlinks. The sidekick also includes a tab for the HTML Tag Navigator, and a tab with HTML tools such as the tag builder, validator, HTML Tidy, etc. For more information, see the following: HTML Sidekick

HTML Tag Navigator

Jump from tag to tag quickly and easily with the HTML Tag Navigator. The tag navigator displays the HTML tags in a document in a clickable format. Clicking on a tag takes the user directly to the location in the editor where the tag resides.

HTML Tag Completion

EditRocket can both auto lookup HTML tags and auto complete tags. When typing the beginning of an opening tag or ending tag, EditRocket will display a clickable list of HTML tags after waiting for the auto-completion delay interval (configurable in the preferences). Users can then select a tag from the list. After completing an opening HTML tag, EditRocket will automatically insert the closing tag if applicable. For more information, see the following: HTML Auto Completion

HTML Tag Tree

View and jump to tags in tree format using the HTML Tag Tree tool. The tag tree displays the HTML tags in a document in a clickable and expandable tree format. Clicking on a tag takes the user directly to the location in the editor where the tag resides.

HTML Wizards

EditRocket provides many wizards for easily creating HTML tags and constructs. Wizards are provided for creating HTML tables, links, images, forms, text input, radio buttons, check boxes, buttons, text areas, select boxes, ordered lists, unordered lists, and file selection.
