I remember seeing somewhere an ad for software that would have 2 panes, one of which would display the html that was in the other pane. However, I cannot find such a software now. does anybody know of such a thing?

You mean like using the inspector built into most web browsers now? – user142485 Aug 31 '12 at 21:29
No, more like the opposite of that. – Jakob Weisblat Aug 31 '12 at 21:50
If you open your document in the browser you can edit it live as suggested in your accepted answer. – user142485 Aug 31 '12 at 21:57

There are many, such software are commonly known as HTML Editor.

  • Adobe Dreamweaver and Microsoft Expression Web are two such software (both are proprietary)

  • CoffeeCup HTML Editor

  • You can use Firebug, it allows you to edit HTML live, its free and its is very popular among web developers.

  • You can also use Online tools such as HTML Tester, but they have limited functionality. (You can't easily work with Images and other assets on online editors)

  • See a detailed List of HTML Editors.

Adobe Dreamweaver is an industry standard in this area, although expensive.

If you have a large enough screen (or even two screens) you can position your favourite text editor next to your browser and just hit F5 periodically to Refresh the browser window.
