    Vendetta? I'm pretty sure that Stallman doesn't even notice. Still, I'm surprised you would pick or not pick an important tool on such a flimsy criterion.

    I'm also sure (from what I've heard about him) that if I sat down with him over a cup of coffee, I'd soon be looking around for another table.

    It's so true that there are many bad advice. Just today (or yesterday, can't remember... reading a ton lately) I came across at least several articles containing all kinds of misuse of h tags and sheer lack of concerns about accessibility issues, which I am just starting to dig. I feel fortunate to have come across your insights.

    It is just one of the many reasons. It feels painfully archaic and at times outright obtuse -- to be expected of a toy made in an age where more than 44 keys on a keyboard was a "luxury". It has that level of big-iron hackishness so common to older *nix tools; something that has always left a bitter taste in my mouth over how painfully obtuse it can get over the simplest of tasks.

    I mean, what's the old joke about people who use emacs for coding? They spend more time creating macros and looking for extensions than they do actually writing code? I mean a LOT of it can be attributed to the different mindset of those raised on big iron instead of micro's -- and I'm definitely the latter -- but there's more to it than that. It could almost make sense if using a non-macro capable assembler, or if screwing around writing LaTex... but since even the train wreck (at least in terms of x86 use) that is GAS supports macro assembler and even desktop publishing people think of LaTex as a dinosaur, the 'need' for 99% of what emacs does just leaves me scratching my head.

    But then if notepad had proper charset support, full memory support, and indentation guides I'd probably still be using that, as most things more "complex" than that in an editor -- for me at least -- ends up unused or worse, gets in my damned way. Part of why the BEST text editor I've ever used on a *nix was gEdit.

    I just want to type s*** in, and maybe once in a blue moon do search/replace. More complex than that is at best a waste of system memory, at worst interferes with what I'm trying to do.

    To be fair though, I'm the nutter for whom "colour syntax highlighting" is a uselessly illegible acid trip, auto-completion never auto-does what I'm trying to resulting in my having to re-edit everything that crap does, and 'code folding' defeats the point of actually trying to browse through code.

    Such "tools" interfere with my needs and methodology in the languages I work with. Your needs and methodology may vary from mine.

    Could be worse though, could be vi/vim which I lump with EDLIN and Wordstar on the "uselessly outdated" scale. Again, tools built for 44 keys that should have gone the way of the dodo the moment the AT-101 became the norm EVERYONE copied. Though that layout itself was copied somewhat from DEC terminals!

    Thank you for these links! I'm currently learning web development and web design myself.
    I actually started learning with Wordpress on my localserver. It wasn't enough but still, as for someone who doesn't have enough background on web development it's quite helpful.

    Hi
    If it is about leaning then must go with the HTML and CSS first. If you just want to do it for fun then go with WordPress or Weebly.
