You can still use Visual Studio. But you can search for Allaire HomeSite 4.5.2. It has great features esp. for html tags.

I use Ultra Edit almost exclusively. Inexpensive, and very customizable. Built in FTP so you can work right on a remote server if you want to. Which is nice for small corrections. Best part is you can download dozens of different syntax highlighting text files. I created my own for a proprietary language where I work. It's worth a look, then if you decide you want to get into another language, you don't have to find another editor for each language. PHP/SQL/CGI/HTML/WML/JAVA/C it's all there, it replaced notepad for me about 3 years ago. Probably the best spent $35 purchase I have ever made.
It does have a 45 day trial period, so you don't have to buy it right off.

A simple free editor:
and a few other goodies.

I use UltraEdit too, in fact I showed it to a number of co-workers who are now using it too. It's a good clean but powerful editor that's well worth the modest price.

I discovered HTML-Kit
Not an expert but I like it better than notepad, TextPad, or Scribbler 2000. I don't know anything about Ultra Edit.
HTLM-Kit also inserts any tag with a click of a button. It also can auto-complete. For example I type "<script " and it completes it like this:
With the cursor sitting right in the middle ready for me to type. cool. :thumbsup:
HTML-Kit has some interface quirks, and I really don't like how they implemented search, search&replace. But I can live with these because HTML-Kit is freeware

It's a 30-day trial thingy though, so that's a negative...
