    Looking for advice on writing a HTML editor

    Ok, so im about to start was is my first major project which is going to be a .chm maker. (This is mainly because i couldn't find a free .chm maker on the net and thought it'd be a sorta cool project.)

    The program will have a very basic HTML editor, my main question here is, is there any free online source code i can use for writing the HTML part of things as far as viewing it goes so i dont have to code every HTML tag into the editor myself?

    I do plan to write the program itself in C++ using win32 API
    Any other advice would be appreciated also.

    I'd start with a text editor that can save .HTML then go from there. I've even seen tutorials on making a text editor in win32.

    Should have posted in C++ forum ;o).

    Cool I'm interested in the idea I've thought about doing the same, but most of my projects have been games so far. I've been making webpages for about 10 years and coding C++ consistently for about a year now. PM on your progress if you stick with this I'll throw in any suggestions I can to help.
