    I'm gonna try HTML Kit now because multiple people have recommended it...
    But so far I do like Notepad++

    Uh, nobody uses Notepad++ ?

    Depending on where I am and what I'm doing...

    Dreamweaver MX... code view only.... nice usage of "find/replace" in specific files, folders or entire site... W3C compliant code every time... ( in code view )...and since I've written 300+ applications over the years... It's easier to manage "OLD" projects... with all the Libraries I've created

    Notepad.... if working on a remote server ( quick fix )... always has a copy available...

    Notepad++ ... small projects ( 1 - 6 folders... < 30 pages ).... or when I'm using a template for a static site

    I actually found notepad++ because I inherited several DW sites that used DW Templates... and DW will NOT remove the "template" markup code without some major Registry Hacks to the DW program....

    used Notepad++ to "edit/replace" all the "Crap"... so the DW files were actually useful again ( in code view)...

    I hear you - that "template" stuff in DW is deadly...

    Notepad++ has a great feature that allows you to look for specific text in a whole folder, with subfolders, find only the pages that contain it, and change it. I have not been able to do that in DW.

    I was taught to actually use the DW templates... why are they so frowned upon?

    I find they limit my ability to edit - I make my own templates, they are completely editable and use a lot of PHP includes for the repeat areas, instead of having the template write the code to every page.

    I use Notepad++ too, although not as my primary editor. I'll use it for PHP stuff when I do it (on occasion), batch file editing, and a few other things.

    My primary editor is Blind Monkeys Throwing Darts At My Keyboard 2.0 Beta.

    I use Aptana for the bulk of my coding, but Notepad++ for quick edits. I've also been messing around with MS's WebMatrix.
