Got a bit fed up of using notepad/simpletext and am looking for the next step in text editors.
I have tried a few: texturizer, phpedit, ultraedit, etc.

I would like colour coding for at least html,css,javascript and php and anything else is a bonus.Oh and line numbers.

Is there anything anyone would recommend?

Take a look at TopStyle. It's a full fledged XHTML editor with incredible CSS support. Coded by the guy who made HomeSite.

Scite (based on Scintilla) or Emacs...

VSL Visual Slick Edit might be worth a look.

HTML-Kit is awesome, and it's free.

I'm still happy with Arachnophilia 4.0 (build 5310) also freeware (well, careware actually!)
Didn't like version 5.0 though......

I use Crimson Editor, it's free, very fast to load, has syntax highlighting for html, css, php, asp, java, perl, jsp etc. It has line numbers too and other handy features like tabs and find & replace for all open files.

I have been using Textpad for 4 yrs and never found a better option for me

I agree with jatar_k - Textpad rules :)

Another thread here recommended ultraedit and I switched in September of last year, and haven't looked back.

I havn't tried HTML-Kit but I have tried the following, which is excellent, its free and it seems to contain all of your requirements, and more:

StlHEditor

Here's one download link I found (the authors site seems to be down or moved)

I'll second UltraEdit. I've used quite a few (many but not all of the ones mentioned so far in this thread) and the one I'm happiest with is UltraEdit.

My longtime favorite is EditPad Pro. Not free, but well worth the $$ you pay for it. It's like a good version of TextPad ;)
