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.

rox my sox
handles text, html, css, you name it - very robust and all-purpose

thanks for the replies.
having tried out most of the above I am currently using HTML-Kit
| 7:00 pm on Jun 21, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Edit Plus is very good.

I'll second TopStyle....
| 4:12 am on Jun 22, 2004 (gmt 0)|
And I'll second HTML-Kit. The best and free
| 7:20 am on Jun 22, 2004 (gmt 0)|
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 ;)

ACE html has what you need. on PC.
HTML Creator on MAC.

Editpad and Homesite are my 1-2 punch... I have tried others but nothing has tempted me away yet.
| 6:57 am on Jul 15, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Editplus 2 rocks my screen.
| 12:58 pm on Jul 15, 2004 (gmt 0)|
What about on the Mac side? I already know about BBEdit--too expensive.
| 5:25 pm on Jul 17, 2004 (gmt 0)|
I use conText and jEdit. Both free and both great. jEdit has possibly the nicest interface I have seen.

Sorry to bring back an old topic but I thought I would add my oppions and pose a question at the same time...
Until recently I would have said Crimson Editor but it has completely screwed up all my file associations and icons etc twice now so I am looking for alternatives.
I have tried JEdit but theyve removed the launcher that there was in previous versions so I cant find a simple way of associating files with it.
Im still looking for a basic, tabbed, editor with PHP, HTML and CSS colouring. It also needs to be free and for Windows. Any suggestions? - I've checked out most of the above.
| 11:30 am on Jul 28, 2004 (gmt 0)|
I've just moved on to Crimson - which has so far been really good.
what do you mean by screwed up your file association and icons? do you mean that that stupid dog icon is next to your .php .js .htm , etc. files?
| 11:59 am on Jul 28, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Yes i do mean that stupid dog icon was on. But the problem was changing it back using every method I could think of wouldn't work. It seemed very persistent. It may just have been something I did but im currently trying out HAPedit. By all means use Crimson as it is a great program, just those were the problems I myself had.
| 12:13 pm on Jul 28, 2004 (gmt 0)|
If you use winXP and you right click a file, select > open with... , choose a program and check always use this program to open this type of file - it will put the icon next to that type of file.
I havn't had crimson change any icons without me asking it to.
I have to admit the only thing I can fault crimson on is that icon.
| 12:17 pm on Jul 28, 2004 (gmt 0)|
It still used the stupid dog thing even when doing the open with thing.
| 1:06 pm on Jul 28, 2004 (gmt 0)|
See post #5. :)
| 1:23 pm on Jul 28, 2004 (gmt 0)|
after starting this thread, I tried most of these and used HTML-kit for a good few weeks - but I think crimson editor is better.
It has a few features that I prefer.
