Wanted to take a "poll" of what people are using as HTML editors. I have dreamweaver but not sure I am sold on it. I know CNET has tons to download and try but not sure what works best. I would like a full solution one, that has various scripting and language support. Templates and snippets are helpful too.

Looking forward to seeing what you say.

Homesite 5 with Opera 7.11, refreshed over and over -- and then tested locally in an assortment of browsers once the page is relatively firmed up.

Tedster - a man after my own heart!
I do spice the above menu with some TopStyle, though.

i used UltraEdit32
i hoped i can get used to vim, but i haven't yet
i think i can use 20-30 commands in vim, but still hard to get more common used function for me(although it's a lot there waiting for me)

ive got sick of seeing this thread so though i better add my contri

Notetab pro.. for everything, mainly because its very fast loading and i guess like everyone, its what im used to so it will take a real problem to make me change. Ive tried everything else from Hotdog to Dreamweaver to Front Page to Homesite. Always came back to notetab for the last 4 years.

In order of preference:

Homesite
Htmlkit
Dreamweaver....

Then there is the original html editor - notepad which I still use when necessary on the fly.

Dreamweaver for find & replace across a whole site
and Crimson Editor for most of the coding, it has extras like tabs and syntax coloring.

Like dingman I'm a programmer first, so I use Emacs under Linux 99% of the time. I never edit under windows, it is just for cross browser testing. I'd rather work with two computers at the same time, one for editing and working, and one for browser testing.

BBEdit on the Mac (I haven't found a text editor on Windows that comes close to BBEdit)

Coldfusion Studio on Windows

I'll also use textpad and ultraedit, but I find myself using editplus 99% of the time.

Ultra edit
which with add on works fine for PHP highlighting

not even thinking about anything else
unless I'll get for free one of those expensive PHP editors :)
but will have still to think about it
