Another important consideration would be to get into the habit of employing the free XHTML and CSS validators online at W3C (or its several mirrors)--either for code on a computer file on your machine or for actual hosted code. Typical webpages could literally contain several hundred instances of invalid code, which different browsers might interpret differently .

Hi :)

Gedit colour codes the both the html and the css.  If i hover over an open
coding bracket<smile>  then it highlights the corresponding closing bracket
</smile>.  I don't know what it does if there isn't a closing bracket.
Something for me to check! :)  It doesn't tell me what to write or give me
look-up tables or drop-down lists of possible tags/coding but i use w3schools or
look-up tables from elsewhere if required.

I think i should check out your suggestions to see if they do give extra
functionality.  Even if they don't it would be interesting to see if they do
help me.  Thanks for the suggestions :)

I use gedit (a text-editor) and switch from plain-text to html so that it all
gets colour-coded.  Most text-editors (except Notepad) seem to offer the same

Probably not... You should employ an HTML editor that validates and simplifies
coding for a number of common DOCTYPEs. There are plenty of them available. Try
using the free (X)HTML editors from W3C or CoffeeCup Software. A decent editor
also incorporates CSS for formatting.
