    John,
    All this talk about editors makes me wonder... What platform/editor was vB created in?

      Peter,

      You can download a free TextPad PHP4 definition file here:
      ftp://ftp.textpad.com/pub/addons/syntax/php4.zip

      Or if you want a listing of other PHP syntax files (3.0 and whatnot):

        TextPad Extensions

        Thanks; I knew they were on there somewhere. Not sure how I missed the "Syntax Definitions" link!

          Peter,
          No problem! I highly recommend TextPad, but mainly because I haven't used the other ones out there. However, the PHP4 definition makes it incredibly easy to use with the syntax highliting, coloring, etc.

          Give it a try!

              I was wondering whether anyone was going to mention EditPlus. IMO, it's the best text editor out there. Syntax highlighting for tons of languages, as well as HTML buttons like coffeecup or homesite. All in small, cheap, and better yet, FAST package.

                  I use UltraEdit and would swear by it. I can also go over the so many advantages it has over TextPad, but I'll spare you of my enthusiastic talk

                  As for syntax highlighting for UltraEdit - you can download some for PHP from UltraEdit's site. I made my custom one that you can download here and then copy/paste at the end of your wordfile.txt file (you can find it in the ultraedit main dir or open it via Advanced -> Configuration -> Syntax Highlighting). You can later change the colours (in "Syntax Highlighting") as I chose a stark contrast of colouring for various commonly used functions, seeing as I'm rather a newbie to PHP and still need visual aids
