    Never heard of an editor either, I think I will stick to learning CSS rather than an editor though.

    i prefer to do it the hard-way via notepad, the main advantage being it takes like half a second to open up code in notepad.

    I have only recently abandoned any kind of GUI for making sites and I plan to stay like that as I have to say you really get a lot more control and what you learn is the code itself as opposed to having to learn a program that will only outdated and require you to learn a new program.

    When you know the actual code then you only need to learn it once :)

    My opinion at least.

    I also use Top Style lite, you actually have to code with it, but it shows all the available options, so it's a lot faster. The color selector is a great help too.

    ... notepad or sth like that :)
    In combination with Photoshop or some other app (color picker?) capable of #RGB color specification.

    I check my colours with the GIMP. Most of the colours I'm going to use are in my mock-up (image of the website in GIMP), so I just colour-selector whichever colour is on the mockup : )

    I code all the rest of my page with PsPad, a glorified notepad. It contains a lot of useful stuff like the color picker and the ascii table. And TopStyle does contain a color picker.

    I use BBEdit. It has macros for inserting code strings, color picker, font picker, built-in code validators, built-in FTP with bookmarks for editing directly on multiple servers, links to all browsers for previews, blah blah blah. I once edited a link in 60,000 pages in directories nested 5 levels deep with a single button click.

    Also serves as a front end for C++, Java, Cobol, etc.

    I like to use notepad++ because it can recognize many different types of code. Anything from HTML, PHP, Pearl, to CSS , SQL, Python..etc. It uses different colors for different parts of code, which is really neat. you still have to type out your code it's not a GUI thing.

    ctrl+f on my machine is Find (search) : )

    Eh, the basic colours I already know out of my head. The ones I pick from Gimp are non-standard anyway (like #8dbec8 and #535459, two colours I'm using a lot on a particular site).

    I do exactly the same thing.

    Editors just get in way and add superfluous junk ... keep it simple ...
