Good XML Editor

Recommended Posts

Brando569    1

hey i was just wondering ppls suggestions on an XML editor that i can use that will save Xplode.XML in the correct format. Im currently using Dreamweaver MX4 and it wont save it in the correct format so i have to open up wordpad and resave it in the correct format whenever i wanna run/test it. its a simple thing to do but its a pain in the @$$ :} and another thing, will xplode4.1 code be compatible with 4.2+ code? currently i dont feel like paying $10 and am going to try coding the whole thing in 4.1 and see how it works out, if it works out good, then i'll possibly pay the money and get the new version, cuz theres no way in hell im gonna recompile/reburn my UA every three weeks...

If you create the file and in NOTEPAD and save it in Unicode, then when Dreamweaver opens it, it should retain that formating. Atleast when I use Dreamweaver it did.

As for compatibility, the XML is exactly the same.

doesnt work that way with MX 2004 i guess cuz it ALWAYS saves it in another format, i can always tell cuz the filesize is always half of what it is when i save it with notepad. (ex. dreamweaver=8kb notepad=16kb)

sounds like Dreamweaver is saving it in ASCII format...seeing as Unicode is twice a large to accomodate the large number of added characters

yup, just tried it. Perhaps you're not using a Unicode source...

in either case: File>Save As. Near the bottom of the window, check the box that says "Include Unicode (BOM)"

I use a program called Notepad++ (Link)

It allows you to program in all different languages with highlighting and more.

The best part is that its free to use.

Recommend that you take a look.
