    I currently use HTML-Kit. Many have recommended phpedit which I may switch over too.

    DreamWeaver, as there is a plethora of plugins for PHP editing. DreamWeaver is great if you run an intranet and give DW access to sql. It gives you alot more click and drag control over your code.

    I like Dreamweaver also, but mainly for it's intelli-sense and color coding of HTML. So far, nothing else color codes based on the tag itself that I'm aware of. If I'm wrong, please let me know, because Dreamweaver like to crash on me sometimes when I first start it up.

    Dreamweaver MX 2004. I'm looking at moving to Fedora Core or similar for development as well as another linux server I have here so I may be in the hunt for a new editor soon as well.

    Sort of like notepad but with great highlighting for almost every programming language around. If you jump over to linux, I'd recommend it. Otherwise, notepad+ would be a great alternative.

    Keep in mind, these are just simple text editors with an extra punch added. Nothing too fancy

    I meant it colors all HTML tags differently, I knew it did it well in PHP.

    I've been using quanta, now I use jedit, it's the best one I found to work on linux, so far... without installing (erm, compiling, I'm on Gentoo) a ton of libraries, of course
