The CurrCon Java Applet displays prices on this
web page converted with today’s exchange rates into your local international currency,
e.g. Euros, US dollars, Canadian dollars, British Pounds, Indian Rupees…
CurrCon requires an up-to-date browser
and Java version 1.8, preferably 1.8.0_102.
If you can’t see the prices in your local currency,
Troubleshoot. Use Firefox for best results.
BestAddress is a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML (Hypertext Markup Language)
editor. Unfortunately, it is not suitable for marking marking up
BestAddress offers three views, code (raw HTML
text), Live (exactly like a browser, non-editable), Visual Editing (looks exactly
like a browser. You can visually edit). The rendering is amazingly good, much
better than the much more expensive Dreamweaver. It renders complex style sheets
perfectly. You can configure to split the screen and see both code and Visual
Editing at once.
It lets you key weird accented characters by selecting them from a grid of the
common accented characters. It sometimes inserts the character directly, sometimes
as a decimal entity, but I have not seen it generate a character entity.
It lets you select colours by pointing at them on a palette.
Spell-checking shows you the word in context but works only in code view.
It has very little support for editing
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). You cannot apply styles other than by typing out
<span tags in code mode. You can create inline
styles, but this defeats the entire purpose of style sheets. You cannot edit
style sheets. This is a show stopper since applying tags is what the bulk of
editing is about.
It reacts quite slowly. If you paste some text, even in code mode, it takes
several seconds to react.
It has a rude habit of typing instead of
It sometimes strips out all your </li> tags.
HTMLTidy was able to repair the damage.
Unlike Dreamweaver, you cannot position in the Visual Editing mode, then flip
to code mode to find the corresponding spot, or visa versa.
It does not properly highlight entities to let you know they are
If you tidy the code it converts every <a to
<A and every </A> to </a>, leaving a
mixture of upper and lower case tags. HTMLTidy was able to repair the damage.
It will not let you verify links by clicking them. I won’t even check
that they exist. I.e. you can’t click links to view other documents, even in
the live view.
The syntax checker is very slow.
I would really like it if there were icons I could click to assign one of my
common CSS styles to the piece of selected text the way I can
in SlickEdit, but I cannot.
It sometimes saves your work without you explicitly asking it to. It has no
close without save. I got in big trouble by loading a file, making changes
intending to save it under another name.
