If you click on this "Gnomehead", you will zoom on over to the Lockergnome forums... a place I visit whenever I'm feeling geek challenged. Just about any computer related question can be answered here. The gnomehead is a likeness of Chris Pirillo, the founder of the Lockergnome newsletters. I've been a subscriber for many years now and the newsletters have been a reliable source for much of the software that I count on now, including most of the titles listed below.
A big thanks to Stu Nicholls of CSS Play... for providing the source I used for these page layouts.
Also many thanks to Eric Simmons and jswitch.com for providing the code for my Quick links menu!
note... I have extensively used all of the software listed below with little or no problems, that's one reason they are recommended here. However, depending on you configuration, your mileage may vary.
Clipomatic and Tray Saver by Mike Lin. Clipomatic is a small tool that I run at startup on my Windows machine that vastly expands clipboard functionality. You can copy many snippets of text (even large multi-line snippets) consectutively and then hit Ctrl/Alt/v to paste any one of those items which appear on the Clipomatic menu.

Tray Saver is a small utility that can hide all those little icons that might be crowded into your system tray.

OK, I said Super NoteTab was great and I still use it often as my Note Pad replacement, but Crimson Editor (now being developed by the Emerald Editor community)is now my default txt and html editor. My son recommended it to me and now I highly recommend it... Syntax highlighting, macros, column mode, multiple document replace, etc. It's a text editor on steroids!

Arachnophilia html editor V5.2, build 1895 is a cross platform java based program written and offered for free as "careware" by Paul Lutus. I have installed this Java based app but must confess that I haven't used it very much although I'm sure it's terrific. The original Windows based version is also still available. This is the app that I used exclusively when I was learning html... the help files alone are worth it if you are serious about learning html.
