HomeSite 5.0

Excellent tool for fine-tuning Web sites.

This is the first release of HomeSite since MacroMedia bought Allaire and acquired the product. It remains an excellent product for anyone who needs to fine-tune web site code at the markup level. If you've worked with HS4.5, you'll be right at home in HS5; the improvements are evolutionary rather than revolutionary. These include thorough XHTML support, close integration with DreamWeaver and Fireworks, better code validation, easier deployment of individual files and folders, and DBCS support. Other nice touches include a secondary file window (which makes it easy to work with two sets of files in different directories at the same time) and a help browser integrated directly into the workspace. I've been maintaining one of the web sites that I work on with HS5 and I love it.
