HTML Designer 

The HTML Designer provides editors and tools that make it possible for you to create and modify HTML documents. There are two editing views:

  • Design view   Use this view to edit HTML pages graphically, insert and resize elements from the Toolbox, position and align them, and see the results instantly.

  • Source view   Use this view to edit HTML directly, insert attributes and properties from pop-up statement completion lists, and validate your markup.
