      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Cold Fusion Studio is a great package, not only for its use as an all pupose editor, as the previous correspondent stated but also for the development of Cold Fusion applications, for which it was created. I've only been in web design since June 2000 and have had to learn a lot on the go. Cold Fusion Studio lets me construct dynamic webpages easily and efficiently using Cold Fusion Markup Language (CFML) which I have found relatively easy to learn and a lot more accessable than, say, ASP. The help section is incredibly useful, with full tag glossary and definitions. There are also some useful wizards to cut down on time. One fault I have found however, is that switching from code view to design view and back again drastically reformats code meaning that nine times out of ten it wrecks the page. My advice : avoid doing it...its not necessary. Cold Fusion Studio helps you to create dynamic websites in a very straight forward and accessible way which is why I like it and why I use it on a daily basis.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Coldfusion is by far the best webpage code editor. It recognises, and colours appropriately; html, php, javascript, css, XML, WDDX many more and of course Coldfusion tags. It has tag completion which I've never seen on another webtext-editor. This means that you can select the relevant code from a dropdown box which appears automatically at the appropriate times. All options can be altered or turned off. eg. the colour coding can be changed to any colours you like or the tag-completion can be made to appear immediately or after any amount of time. Everything is customisable. It then has further useful options. FTP file editing, database viewing, extensive help files and mapping of your page. There are many wizards to help you with more complicated code or design. The image map wizard lets you create image maps by drawing the relevant link areas on the picture and then assigning any name, hrefs, javascript extras to each link. It then outputs the code onto your page. I highly recommend using the program - even if you don't use Coldfusion. After using it, you won't be able to go back to any other editor. It may be quite pricey, but there are three levels of purchase and a 30 day evaluation period available.
