    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

    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.

    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!

    TextPad Extensions

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

    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):

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

    Has anyone created definitions for PHP word highlighting (for the mentioned editors that support custom definitions) that you would care to share?

    NoteTab Light is all you'll ever need.... this free app is amazing ..... sorry but i had to do this hehe

    NoteTab Light is the ultimate free Notepad replacement and a capable HTML editor. A slimmer version of the award-winning NoteTab Pro, this slick application makes text editing a breeze. Move quickly around a stack of large
    files with a simple tabbed interface. Format your text to your heart's content. Write with the font of your choice, fixed-width or proportional.

    If you need to cut and paste chunks from a pile of files, forget the Clipboard: you can set up a Paste Board file to save text clips automatically. Strip HTML tags from your files. Call up complete document statistics instantly. Use
    powerful, system-wide search and replace tools.

    Speed up your work with text macros: you can use them as shortcuts, or even to auto-replace those persistent typos. Handy sample macro libraries are supplied, and you can easily build your own. Make the most of NoteTab's many options to suit your own workstyle.

    Well ok... I do *some* stuff in vi... but most of the time I find it much easier to develop and test on windows.
