Hot Dog Professional (Hot Dog Pro, for short) is a wonderful HTML authoring tool.

I reviewed Hot Dog Pro 5.5 some time ago (, and was impressed then. In general, I don't like HTML editors, preferring to "wing it" ... write my own HTML. Hot Dog Pro has changed my mind.

With Hot Dog Pro you can connect to a remote website, work on the HTML, and save it directly to the site. The "Super Toolz" available for download now number 18 ... including an image mapper, table editor, java script tools, an image lab, and many more. Hot Dog Pro contains an automatic download/install feature which is very easy to follow, and even asks if you want to delete the installation files (after use) to save hard disk space. Each "Super Tool" is extra expense, but you can pick and choose which tool you think important enough to purchase.

Features such as the HTML Property Sheet (which provides access to every attribute for the current tag), tag completion and error highlighting, and wizards make webpage creation a breeze.

The trial version is completely functional for 30 days. You'll be hooked long before the trial period runs. As always, Sausage Software's customer service is wonderful; if you have any questions or problems, they're prompt with a helpful response.
