    You could try vim or gvim. It does good syntax coloring for several languages. I use it all the time and works pretty well for php and html. But, if you are looking for more of a complete IDE, it probably wouldn't be the best choice. I am just used to writing all my code and such while shelled into my webserver and then testing with a browser.

    Right, I think using notepad is horrible efficiency, but if you are referring to my comment, I more or less meant that I wanted a simple tool with syntax highlighting, not somehting like dreamweaver with all that overhead!

    I really like jedit.org.
    A Java-based editor with a extensive list of available plugins. (parsing xml, evaluating xslt, testing regexp, FTP, SQL command line and many more)
    The syntax colouring, tabs / spaces can be defined globally for every supported language or for each language individually.

    I've also been using HomeSite - nice search and replace features on folders and sub folders, collapsable sections of code if you choose and nice syntax highlighting

    i've tried homesite... but as someone mentioned, it seems to have memory problems...

    I wish there were some way to trim down dreamweaver... right now I use it as a text editor basically... I don't need it to use so much RAM!

    I'll add my vote to those already cast for EditPlus. On Windows, I've switched often but always come back to that one. PHPEdit has a lot of nice features and a lot of potential, but EditPlus is simpler and faster. On Linux, vim.

    This has got my interest as well..

    I took a look at EditPlus and it looks really good. I may even consider starting using it

    Hehe... and then, knowing me.. I always come back to Dreamweaver... one thing I noticed was the find/replace... dreamweaver allows you to execute this on an entire directory, which I do VERY, VERY often... I guess I could essentially just use dreamweaver (or even a free one from download.com) to do it... but I seem to be having problems configuring the syntax highlighting.

    I've bene using HomeSite since v3, using 4.5.2 at the moment as v5 is just extra overhead that I don't need.

    Zend Development Environment is very nice, but expensive. http://www.zend.com/
    So hold me when I'm here
    Right me when I'm wrong
    Hold me when I'm scared
    Love me when I'm gone.

    As a side comment, that extended find/replace in DW came from Homesite

    Karl: Yah I know... it seems pretty much that dreamweaver is going to get rid of it... surprised they are actually still selling it!

    This is entirely configurable... you can set the PHP buffer to colour the HTML something other than grey if you want (like blue for example).

    Personally, I love that it toggles the buffers for me. I have looked at other editors, but none of them has come close to PHPEdit in terms of how many options if gives you for syntax highlighting. You can set different types of highlighting for every buffer type PHPEdit supports as well (PHP, HTML, XML, SQL, INI, etc)....

    Ahh well, I digress. Everyone has their favourite, and you just have to find one that you like

    PHPEdit is rather far ahead of all others in my book

    Cheers,
    Keith.
