  1. yeah, cool! that’s a great tool, maybe newbies could use it too!

    I find it “hard” for beginners.

    Is there an alternative to it?

  2. I’ve never heard of TinyEdit, thanks for sharing. Notepad++ is my favorit text editor and I’ve been using that for most of my website development and programming.

  3. Many of the coders do formatting of codes so that they are not visible properly in normal notepad, such special programs do good formatting so that we can see those codes easily.
