Are you just trolling or have you simply not read our (jess' and mine) posts on this topic? The RISC OS GUI lets you work with a collection of different small apps and tools as though they were an integrated package. So you have a number of tools that complement one of the two excellent editors (Zap or StrongEd, both of wich have great HTML modes available). I mostly work with server-side content management systems like Joomla where I have to upload code-changes to the server anyway before I can really see what the changes would look like. This is a lot easier on RISC OS, than on most other platforms, because I never manually download or upload anything. I simply open the file in question from a filer-window wich displays the contents of a directory on the server (via an image filing system) and when I save the changes in the editor, they get saved directly back onto the server. I then refresh the page in the browsers I keep running on my MacOS-, Windows- and Linux-Computers to see the changes almost instantly in Opera (Windows and Linux versions), Internet Explorer (MacOS and Windows versions), Firefox (MacOS, Linux, Windows and RISC OS versions) and Safari (MacOS' standard browser).


For new web-designers the advantage of an x86-Mac is that they don't have to buy a separate PC to test their sites with windows-versions of web-browsers.
