I love emacs,
and I want to do my web-programming work in it,
but I can't find a way to get it to edit HTML properly.
I mean it's seriously awful.
I tried getting html-helper-mode... I downloaded it, put it in /usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp, and added it to my .emacs file:
(autoload 'html-helper-mode "html-helper-mode" "Yay HTML" t) (setq auto-mode-alist (cons '("\\.html$" . html-helper-mode) auto-mode-alist))
copied and pasted from some site (I don't know elisp).
it just, doesn't highlight anything at all.
I tried downloading a whole bunch of modes and using some other mode to string them together, to no avail.
Emacs is so great in every other way--why can't it do the simple task of editing web pages? I mean, it's a pretty standard thing to do for editors these days.
So, does anyone know how to do this?
