    Free HTML (ASP/PHP) Text Editors

    Alo, was wondering if there were any free editors that also allowed you to create a new website like Dreamweaver... so that you had a right or left hand pane for viewing all of your files in that particular site.

    Also, it should be able to open ASP and PHP pages.

    Thanks for any help!

    I'm not aware of any free programs that do this like dreamweaver does. The closest you might get is a free version of software in which you can save 'sessions' of all the pages. I'm pretty sure any free text editor can open ASP and PHP pages - are you asking about specific code highlighting perhaps? If you are then again, many of the free text editors have this also.

    For free I wouldn't expect extreme bells and whistles. It just needs to be capable of editing XHTML, ASP and PHP pages (with code highlighting config) and a right or left-hand pane that allows you to setup a local folder that displays your website files. This may not exist for free, I don't know. But that's what I'm looking for .

    Notepad++ have a "light explorer", where you can see the folder and file structure...
    More info here:http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/uk/site.htm

    Also take a look at their screenshot section.

    I am more comfortable with Notepad++. There are many options on how what you gonna do with your code when decide to save it in a particular format.

    You may need to upgrade to a decent operating system first though

    Yes. I definately second that.
    Not only does it have a good file explorer, but it also has a very decent FTP program. You can drap and drop the page your working on directly to the FTP server.
    It's no Dreamweaver as far as the WYSIWYG goes, but for a free HTML Editor it is well worth you time to check it out.
