    Assuming that you hard code web sites, as oppose to cheating (:P) and using something like Dreamweaver or, heaven forbid, Frontpage, what text editor do you use?

    When I first learned HTML, I used Notepad, but obviously it isn't very good, so I found something called Textpad, which has been extremely useful so far. But I am wondering whether there is something better that I am missing out on. Also, what OS is it running on? I have a Linux kit for my PlayStation 2, and am wondering what text editor would be useful on that for web authoring.

    My only non-WYSIWYG editor was Arachnophilia. I use Dreamweaver exclusively, now, but I spend a lot of time in the code view as well as the design view.

    I hand-code everything on my website: the PHP, the HTML, CSS, JS and anythign else. I use Crimson Editor ( http://www.crimsoneditor.com ) which has syntax highlighting for all of the above and more.

    For more freeware that's really good, check out these two pages on my website:

    Then I salute you, as that is dedication. You could at least use Wordpad

    I don't saulute you... I give you an award for stupidity.

    You know, we could eat all our meals with a plastic spork... but what does that accomplish in the end? Use the right tools for the job, and notepad has VERY few jobs that it's the right tool for.

    I use Dreamweaver most of the time and crimson editor now and then. Both have their advantages.

    I don't see what's the problem with Dreamweaver... I use it in code view fine, but would probably suck at using it as a pure wysiwyg. It's just the little things I use it for.

    Syntax highlighting, completing closing tags automaticaly, wrapping/formatting, having both stylesheet and page open in same window.

    Notepad is fine for quick changes, loads instantly, always a right-click away.

    I use Notepad too, all the other ones are to much money for me right now. I need to mow some lawns, I have no money at all. Is there anything else for free that is better than notepad?
