BBEcontainer is an add-on for Firefox , which allows you to edit documents on the local fie-system with your favourite browser-based editor, without having to install a web server on your computer.   all you need is firefox and a web-page-based editor,and you can create pages in WYSIWYG mode.

This add-on is meant mainly as an aid for web developers to create html documents visually; the add-on itself doesn't edit-its primary functionality is to load & save files from & to the disk.   After installation,the tools menu will contain an entry titled "BBEcontainer" ,which will create a new browser tab.
this tab has 3 components :
all loading & saving is done through the workarea -
the inner iframe ,inside the editor,which contains the document being edited.
using certain configuration options,BBEcontainer can locate the workarea in the editor and connect it directly to the local filesystem.

Installation

you have to decide which editors you want to use; download one,and unpack it somewhere on your computer.
