I wish to edit my .html files saved to floppy's on a c128 or c64.

First using notepad or word i create the file.html file then transfer them to
a real c64 floppy using star commander etc.

What i would like to do is place the floppy in my c128 and edit the .html files without
using a windows or linux box. easy! well you would think so.
When i open my files using a txt editor on the c128/64 i get hyroglifics and some numbers
but no txt. ? tried bb mini office II and super script.

I thought a txt file was a txt file on any machine.

Does anyone know of a editor for the c128/64 that will edit txt files created on a windows or linux machine.
Should i be using a file editor. ?

Thanks Shane.

Try switching charset by pressing SHIFT+CBM with a normal editor. It will switch you between the GRAPHIC SYMBOLS and ASCII charset.

Are the files on disk as PRG or as SEQ ?

Try using TMP (Turbo Macro Pro) or Turbo Assembler. Both allow you easy edit of text files (source files are text files), even though they are assemblers ;)

As for real text editors, you could give C64WORD a try. Never used it myself though...

I always rather liked KWIK-WRITE! which can be found on this disk

Some documentation can be found at http://www.kmoser.com/bbs/docs-kwik-write.php

Thanks for the link, I've been looking for a simple editor for the C64. Unfortunately, this crashed to READY. whenever I try to load/save, even on a stock C64 or in VICE. Anyone else try it?

I also had to hex-edit the CW64.EXE file and add 01 08 to the front so it would load properly.
