Interesting.

When writing a forum response that will take some time to generate, I just write it in BBEdit, then copy/paste to the forum. Save it first to an archive for future reference.

JohnL,

Dingue BBCode Editor is an HTA application (HTML + VBScript) written by myself and hosted on my own website. It's free for non-commercial use and open source.

I had been testing similar programs like BBedit, and while they were fine, I wanted a few more features. So wrote my own (HTA is relatively easy + it suits perfectly this purpose).

The main things I enjoy with my app are
-the very large input box (hey, maybe too large!)
-auto-save (what you type is backed up in case of crash or anything)
-archivage (saving in another process to an archive file)
-instant preview
-error highlighting (whe there is an error in the BBcode you are typing, it will be shown in red in the preview)
-intelligent clipboard management (e.g. automaticaly insert url from the clipboard inside url tag - read readme files for more details)
-Undo/Redo

etc

To install, extract to your "documents" folder or one of its subfolder or in "Public".
There is no installation requiered. Just double click on "BBCode_editor.hta" to start.

HTH
