Re: Editor for HTML, UTF-8 and Arabic

I use Mozilla 1.* ( 
<>) for authoring/editing 
Arabic HTML with utf-8. Mozilla composer can read and save in most 
Well Mozilla is yet perfectible, but it fulfill many jobs. HTML files I 
use to edit are in fact Arabic + Latin. Some of my requirements would be:
- Option to edit in HTML mode *both* in visual or logical (memory) 
ordering. The latter is necessary for some "fine tunings".
- Ability to retrieve the chain of cascading styles that apply to a text 
at a given place.
- Select a text and apply a <span> to it with some desired attributes.

There are also situations (e.g. telnet to a web server from MacOS X) 
where I simply edit Arabic-utf8 files with emacs. But not to do too much 

Hope that helps.
