I believe this is the only way forward. why ? if you think about it,
not 2 browser handle HTML the same way, there are nagging differences.
I cannot believe you can expect a wysiwig editor to solve this problem
for you. For a brain HTML is not complex, neither is PHP ... but it
seems to be a challenge for one single tool to comprehend. So you end
up using 2 or 3 different tools, losing time, patience & sometimes
source code too!

So after a few attempts, I came back to plain text editor,but modern :
syntax highlighting, macros, external module (so you can call the PHP
cli to have a quick syntax check before you try the page) etc ...
