I am about to "make the switch" as they call it to a PowerBook G4. It is going to be top of the line. 100GB harddrive, 1.25GB RAM, 1.67GHz Processor, Tiger OS X, and of course Airport. I know most of the software I'm going to buy except for one thing.

I need a basic text editor for Mac OS X that has syntax coloring for PHP, HTML, and JavaScript. I am used to Edit+(www.editplus.com) so if there was something similar to that, it'd be great.

I've researched BBEdit and that just seems too unnecessary for my needs.

If anyone has any experience with text editors like that, just let me know your thoughts.

Thank you in advance!

BBEdit, SubEthaEdit, and TextMate are about the only *real* native OSX editors you'll find. I miss my UltraEdit (http://www.ultraedit.com) terribly, though I've been making by in SubEthaEdit lately.

Personally I use SubEthaEdit, and have very few complaints :)

I live on SubEthaEdit and occasionally TextWrangler

SubEthaEdit's block editing feature for indentation and other things is a godsend

I would say SubEthaEdit is one of the best around. :)
