SO......what does everyone use ??


Whatever Gringo uses must be good !!   he has amassed over 130,000 posts, so what ever he uses would need to be bulletproof and simple !!


Upon surveying the 'lord knows how many results' on google...i am left with the conclusion that if I am a certified brain surgeon i just might be able to figure them out....



I am looking for something that will of course accept bb code, and will highlight in all the various colors, and print in bold etc etc.....that is obviously a given...but also has some sort of simple structure whereby the canned "speeches: can be kept in the program itself and maybe be bought up by simply typing some text.....eg....mbam would bring up Malwarebytes and all other speeches associated with it...


I want to be able to write a "speech" containing links and instructions for the various tools used in the AII area, be able to store that speech, be able to edit that speech, and have plenty of room to organize the speeches into some semblance of order.


As you can see I am groping in the dark here....I have little/no experience with this type of thing.


So, all suggestions are welcome and will be looked at with interest.


Any detail as to why you think a certain program is well suited to this forum eg, simplicity, etc etc, will be perused with great interest.





ps.....Yes, i will even pay money for the right program.......so 'free' is not a necessity....(it would be nice of course....)

I use bbEditor - (BC Download) in conjunction with TinySpell portable free spell checker.

Along with extensions like CoLT :: Add-ons for Firefox and a  good screen capture extension :: Add-ons for Firefox, or a good screen capture application makes life easier.  Helps to have a clip board manager too.

Still lets me make plenty of mistakes though, so not a bulletproof set up.  No brain surgery required before use, maybe after.

A person with a little bit of BASIC programming skill could write an editor to produce such code to tag selections of text.
