Now it works.
Thanks a lot. We have to switch to IE to preview any change results, right?

You either did something wrong while configuring the new document class, or you did not re-start TextPad after doing so.  Here are step-by-step instructions:

  1. In TextPad select Configure -> Preferences.
  2. Click on Document Classes.  In the right pane you will see a list of all existing classes.
  3. Click on the 'New' icon at the bottom of the list and enter 'FoxWeb Script' as the class name.
  4. Click the Apply button
  5. Expand the Document Classes item in the right pane and select the 'FoxWeb Script' class.
  6. In the 'Files in class FoxWeb Script' box enter '*.fwx'.
  7. Expand the FoxWeb Script item in the left pane.
  8. Select the Syntax item.
  9. Check the 'Enable syntax highlighting' check box.
  10. Select foxweb.syn in the drop-down list.
  11. Click Apply.

You should also add the fwx extension in the Associated Files section.  This will cause TextPad to open whenever you double-click on an fwx file.

I just tested this procedure on a new computer, so I know it works.

You will need to copy the syntax file in the System sub-folder of your TextPad folder and create document class for fwx files in the TextPad Preferences.

I downloaded TextPad. But how do I use your syntax highlighting profile?
I unzipped the file to C:\Program Files\TextPad 5\  folder. and I change accordingly the Syntax folder setting in Configure --> Pereferences --> Folder -> Syntax

But I still do not see the highlighted characters.

Some users have used Microsoft FrontPage, while others have used Dreamweaver.  From what I remember they had to do some simple configuration, but I'm fuzzy on the details.  I just searched this forum and found some information on this subject.

I personally like to use regular text editors that offer syntax highlighting.  My favorite one is TextPad, for which we have created a syntax highlighting profile.

I like the idea of being able to incorporate a visual web editor with west wind.  
I'd like to know what editor Foxweb developers are using.

I've been evaluating FoxWeb for several weeks and am convinced that it will serve my organization's needs. However, we are also considering other products. Can anyone offer reasons to go with FoxWeb over, say, West Wind Web Connection?
