    I have used DWMX (But we don't mention that ), EditPlus and Kommodo. I currently use EditPlus because it produces great text output for everything, unlike DWMX (Try opening a file via SAMBA that is on a Linux system, and then saving it.. It majorly FUBAR's the file!). Kommodo good, but it is kinda slow and you can only open one file at a time (At least last summer) and it has no built-in FTP..

    On my Mac I always use Hydra, good syntax coloring etc. I rarely need anything other than that in a text editor. Any good apps on a PC for basic text editing and syntax coloring?

    I rather like EditPlus on the PC.. I used to use BBEdit for OS X back when I was a Macie

    Go to Edit -> Preferences -> Editor and clear the 'Columns' box next to the Tab Stop option.

    You can still open only one window (which is annoying on multiple desktops), but multiple files has always been OK (not what you meant, right?).

    It has remote debugging and a whole load of stuff under the surface. i wish they would do the last bit of spit and polish though, there are some silly default preferences. I find I have to restart it periodicaly on Windows or it just gets slower and slower. It certainly isn't worth the $200 for the professional licence.

    yours, Marcus.

    I usually use either Quanta+ or SciTE. I find that Quanta+ is a lot like DWMX in many ways -- the ability to do ftp stuff and upload your file (that's the best part of DWMX, imho). SciTE is a really powerful SMALL editor; it has built in support for tons of languages, and all of the configuration is done thru files, so you really have more control. You can fold loops/classes/methods, and you can also set it to compile with a quick keystroke (not that you would be compiling php, but for perl/python/c it's really handy).

    If you are looking for Lightweight, try SciTE. If you are someone looking for a free alternative to DWMX, then go with Quanta: you will be pleasantly surprised.

    If you need a debugger for PHP, try dbg. But why would you? There are only runtime errors, no compile errors, so they really aren't hard to find, especially if you have syntax highlighting turned on.

    Vi is also really efficient, if you want to spend like 5 years of your life learning shortcuts and commands. ;]

    And then there's Emacs... wtf.
