Taco HTML Edit is a full-featured HTML editor and PHP editor. As an HTML editor, Taco HTML Edit empowers its users to rapidly create their own web sites. It is designed exclusively for Mac OS X and has many advanced features including spell checking, live browser previewing, PHP previewing, error checking, and much more.

The Component Library allows you to select one of 24 components, customize it, and insert it into an HTML document. From Slideshows to Pie Charts, from Accordion Controls to Scrollable Tables, the Component Library has the widgets that web designers have often wanted to add to web pages, but until now have been very encumbering. The Component Library revolutionizes how web designers create web pages.

Component Library - Each component has many customization options, and you can see your customizations in a Live Preview while you are configuring the component. You can also preview your component in a web browser, using the same menu options available for previewing documents. Once you like the configuration of the component, just hit the "Insert" button to place the component in your web page. Any needed scripts, images, and style sheets are copied to a directory that you specify. All components are compatible with Safari 4+, Internet Explorer 7+, and Firefox 3+. Components are implemented using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

OS X Lion Features - For OS X Lion users, Taco HTML Edit has support for Autosave, Resume, Versions, and Full Screen.

Code Completion - Taco HTML Edit has code completion, to help you learn and remember HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP names for tags, attributes, and functions. Suggested completions include links to the relevant documentation, and a brief description of the selected choice. Support for HTML5 and CSS3 is included.

Preview - Taco HTML Edit allows you to preview your HTML and PHP documents as you edit them. Taco HTML Edit provides a convenient menu for previewing in Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Safari. When you preview a PHP document, Taco HTML Edit will first preprocess it with your local PHP installation, so that you can view the final results.

Live Preview - In addition to normal document previewing, Taco HTML Edit has Live Preview, which allows you to see changes in how your document renders while you are editing it. This can be very useful for fine-tuning the appearance of a document, as you can instantly see how changes in a color or other parameter will affect the appearance of your document. Live Preview will also preprocess PHP code when needed.

Code Coloring - As you edit your document, Taco HTML Edit colors your markup to make it easier to read and navigate. The coloring is customizable, and Taco HTML Edit supports coloring for HTML, PHP, CSS, and JavaScript syntax.

Error Checking - Taco HTML Edit will find errors in your HTML, PHP, CSS, or JavaScript content and provides a simple interface to show you where the errors are located in your document.

Code Clips - If you ever get tired of copying and pasting frequently used pieces of markup, then Taco HTML Edit's Code Clips will alleviate your problems. Code Clips allow you to easily store, manage, and access frequently used segments of markup. With Code Clips, you can assign keyboard shortcuts (Command + 0-9) to insert a clip into a document.

Find & Batch Find - Taco HTML Edit includes advanced Find functionality for searching individual documents or entire projects. Support for regular expressions is included.

Code Folding - Code Folding allows you to collapse segments of text, making it easier to navigate through your text. Taco HTML Edit will remember and restore your folds if you don't edit a document externally.

Navigator - Easily navigate a document with Taco HTML Edit's Navigator pane, which automatically updates to reflect changes you make to your document.
