Somtheing useful, I'd like....

I don't know if this product exists or not but I always thought it would be useful to have a program that stays loaded and by hitting a hotkey pops up and provides a little menu of HTML tags to be selected and popped into a document.

I use a lot of programs that take html but don't provide any toolbars of html tags to use.

Just a thought. If anyone knows of such a tool I'd be interested in knowing where to get it.

You should try out the NoteTapPro Editor from It has lists of almost everything a programmer need  alongside the edit window (and you can make your own lists if you want). You can use the editor part to hold templates and variables from CD too - besides it's a very handy editor which highligts code and let you view it in your browser. I use it every day.

I have that editor, I have most of them actually. I am currently using edit+2

What I want though is something that is independent of any program. So, no matter what program I am using I can access and use a full set of html codes.

There are several apps that do what you want. A recent one I tried was and another long-time favorite is . They'll both probably do what you want, but you'll probably have to make the prompt lists yourself.

Alternatively, any app that supports global keyboard hooks could be taught to pop up a text list of whatever you like. There are even some freeware apps that do that. Your keyboard might have even come with one.

Hi, you guys. I am author of FlashPeak UltimaShell. I'd like to let you know that I am planning to add support for html tag autocompletion very soon.
