Editors.. What do you use?

    I have used the tried and true Notepad++ w/highlighting for more than a year now and I am finding it tiresome to continue typing everything manually when I know there are options that have (sane) autocomplete features. I find that a lot of problems that I end up troubleshooting for are stupid typos or syntax errors that I could avoid with a better editor. (I know Notepad++ has an autocomplete feature but it is intrusive and unmanagable in my opinion).

    I wanted to see what other are using and if they would recommend it or not...

    Thanks

    I like AceHTML Freeware. It has a lot of features, tabbed files, lots of tools to add code, colour coding, can highlight an entire div (very useful). All for free.

    This has been asked 10 000 times already lol.

    I mostly use Notepad++, sometimes Dreamweaver (code view then).
    Dreamweaver is a little overkill for the purpose I use it, but it's kinda handy to have all folders and things on your right hand side, especially for large project with many folders. And when it comes to PHP I like the highlighting better in Dreamweaver. :)

    I mainly use Dreamweaver in Code View. Sometimes, if I need to make only a small change (say, 1-2 lines), I simply open it in Notepad.

    Before I purchased my CS2/Studio 8 bundle, I used CoffeCup's HTML Editor. I liked the free version so much, I upgraded to the premium version (I believe it was $30). I don't remember any major differences - I simply wanted to support the company.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I don't mind Dreamweaver, but my major gripe was that it didn't keep indenation consistant as I moved from line to line. I found myself punching the Tab key a lot....

    Aptana seems great so far. I think I'll use it for a while and see how it shakes out.

    Thanks again to every one who replied!

    I use Dreamweaver, but sometimes Notepad is enough for simple tasks.

    I use Dreamweaver in code view, it's great. I couldn't ask for a better text editor.

    If you don't have the money for that, I would say save templates of the code and then just edit it with Notepad or something. It is a lot easier to start off with your doctype and all of your basic page elements coded than to have to do it each time.
