    What text editor do you use? (TextPad, Notepad++, etc)

    Well currently I'm using TextPad and am considering a change. I started using TextPad as it was the program given to me on my school laptop during college and I just became used to it and ended up installing it on my development PC as well.

    There is however a pretty big bug that I've began noticing; when you scroll in one document it will scroll in another one too. This makes it extremely difficult to manage multiple documents and is extremely frustrating when working with CSS/XHTML.

    All I need is multiple document support and syntax highlighting. Let me know what you've used in the past and what you've thought.

    I used to use TextPad myself...but once I started working on various platforms...I needed something that provides similar functionalities to that of TextPad...and also runs on any platform such as Linux, Mac OS etc.

    I found JEdit to be excellent candidate, since I can configure it to run from a USB stick and was able to use all of the plugins that I have downloaded and configured to my liking.

    You can download JEdit from the following website http://jedit.org/

    eh!

    i suggest you use zend for php & all other server side jazz, and DM (DreamWeaver MX) a very good tool for HTML & CSS editing.

    I stay with Dreamweaver's code view. Never thought of changing, but Notepad++ is useful enough.
