BlueGriffon is a free wysiwyg editor, released by Disruptive Innovations (Daniel Glazman's company). Powered by Gecko, the rendering engine of Firefox, it's a modern and robust solution to edit Web pages in conformance to the latest Web Standards.

Further to the W3C staff first request, version 1.4 "Hout Bay" of 17-jan-2012 features a hidden preference bluegriffon.defaults.forceLF to force saving documents into Unix mode (carriage returns are one LF). A possible feature for 1.5 to allow to save according to the OS (CRLF, Windows; CR, Mac; LF, Linux). To add, open Tools/Preferences/Advanced/Configuration Editor, and add a new boolean value bluegriffon.defaults.forceLF, with the value true.

Further to another W3C staff request, Daniel Glazman wrote an add-on, PUTter (access restricted to W3C Team), allowing to publish a document and the local resources attached to that document through HTTP PUT. Disruptive Innovations grants the World Wide Web Consortium a perpetual site license for this add-on, free of charge, for W3C Staff only. Redistribution outside of W3C is not permitted.

The W3C systeam discussed BlueGriffon support (30-Jan 2012 SysWeb minutes, access restricted to W3C Team), and support will be limited to helping debug things on the server side.

Tips

* Edit and save document with file extension (.html)
* "Refresh" doesn't exist as such. But, right-click on tab and "revert" does a refresh.
