Notepad++ Vs Dreamweaver – Tools for building website

In this article, I would like to teach about the basic software that are used to create an HTML webpage. In the olden days, they used the built-in software to create the websites. They used Notepad which comes along with the Windows operating system.

Notepad has no features to create an HTML document. There are many standalone software that are used to create the HTML, CSS, Javascript, php etc. You can just open the Notepad and type the html code & save that with an .html extension.
