I've always used Homesite and InterDev for .asp development but now I'm planning a foray into PHP I was wondering what you might recommend as a good text editor for PHP, preferably with some nice colourful syntax highlighting (so, no, not notepad;))

Same here.
I use Allaire ... well Macromedia Homesite.

It's a really good editor for PHP.

Gvim - (vi based)

[vim.org...] - I use it for everything - and its free. Includes pretty syntax colors for just about everything.

textpad does all my coding needs. BBedit is better but I am confined to a PC.

Well shake my legs and call me monkeh!

HomeSite 4.5.2 already has syntactical highlighting for PHP. I just assumed it didn't because there's no php option on the QuickBar.

Is there a plug-in you can get for HS that adds some PHP stuff to the QuickBar?

Editplus. User Tools allows running scripts from the editor. Editable templates, syntax pref. and auto completion files. Editable syntax highlighting. Clip text for CSS 1 & 2, HTML 3.2 & 4, ANSI, SSI, and Control Characters. Match brace searching. Find and replace editing. Blah, blah. Try it.

Big thumbsup for EditPlus too. Fast and light with about every option I can use.
I wish it has some better kb macros, but what is there will do.

I found the coolest editor. Html-kit located at [chami.com...] . It looks a lot like the concept HotDog was trying to pull off. The main difference is they did it right. It is totaly free and has a plugin for everything from a thesaurous to creating javadocs plus all the standard tool bars for all the html,css,java,javascript,etc... keyword syntax. It also does keyword completion and that is only some of the features. I found it about a month ago and I have never been happier. It has almost converted me from a die hard 10 year vi addict. :-)

Yes, Homesite v5

- Color syntax highlighting
- Remote edit via FTP
- PHP function insight
- Tons of shortcut keys!
- Tag editors for all HTML elements
- Build-in CSS creator
- Validator Built in
- Image Map Editor
- Code Sweeper
- Spell Check
- Code collapsing
- Auto-backup recovery
- Extended Search and Replace

Can there be anything more perfect? :) I don't think so.

The only feature not done on my dream list is remote edit via sftp.

I've tried a bunch including most of those mentioned here except Homesite. For a while I was sold on Kommodo and would still recommend it, but it's expensive. Even with a paid version of Kommodo, though, I've pretty much switched to exclusive use of HAPedit. Features:

- free
- syntax highlighting
- popup code completion (all native PHP functions and vars, plus user-defined vars in all open docs and all docs linked via "include" or "require" in the current doc.
- code hint (syntax hints)
- regex searches
- multi-doc search and replace
- integrated FTP
- PHP "compilation" (shows resulting code)
- page info (similar info to Brett's page size checker)
- brace matching (i.e. highlights matching (), {}, [])
- doesn't touch the registry - simple install and uninstall - just erase the files.
- even beta versions are generally pretty stable (available only to those who subscribe to newsletter).

It's free but virtually unknown because it was only in French for a long time. I'm so sold on it I've started helping the developer translate his newsletter for beta testers.

+1 for TextPad with syntax file for making it look nice, i think the php syntax file is a seperate download.
