Next semester I plan on using the ArcGIS Web Development book in a 1 credit hour course with some of my undergraduate students here at the University of Northern Colorado. I currently have these students set up on their own IIS servers/ArcGIS Server/access to Organizational accounts (for a Web GIS class that is just ending). I'm thinking that I can just have my students (and me too--I'm also learning) use Notepad++ to complete the bulk of the exercises. I'm not "really" a developer--I'm learning at just a slightly faster pace than my students. But am I correct--that I can have students use Notepad++? I've done the 2nd chapter exercises and they worked via that approach. Rene--any thoughts? Anyone else?
Thanks. Dave D.

Re: Using Notepad++ to complete exercises
You should do just fine using Notepadd++. The main thing you need to do is make sure the files are located in a server environment so that the ArcGIS JavaScript API will work correctly. So, for IIS, you could edit the files directly in a folder in c://inetpub/wwwroot.

If you have any issues, feel free to let me know.
