    Do you mean you need an HTML editor? If so, there's Frontpage, Dreamweaver, Araneae, etc.

    If you mean a web-browser that reads HTML, than all browser do that as anything you see on the internet has some form of HTML.

    Any browser in the following list works with Windows XP Home Edition:

    Opera
    Firefox
    IE 6
    IE 7
    Netscape
    Maxthon

    THere are LOTS of browsers that are compatible with Xp, much more that S Walch suggested. I would recomend that you try a couple of them out to see what you like.

    also youll find different browsers display the html differently. I use firefox and ie to view my html, and there is a little difference sometimes.

    Those differences are due to the level of support for XHTML and CSS standards. Almost all browsers support CSS1, most support CSS2 and only a very few support CSS3.

    This site can be helpful on which browsers support CSS: http://www.webdevout.net/browser_support_css.php

    I would recommend testing any code in at least both Firefox and IE.

    You're saving the file as a BMP but trying to call it via HTML as file.gif? Never use BMP for the web, it is not browser friendly. Save the image as a jpg and than update the img code appropriatly.
