Any ol' text editor will do. Syntax highlighting and line numbers are a plus.

OTHER: My brain. You can write html/css/javascript/php with a pencil if you have to, but unless you know HOW it works its still just text.

All joking aside, I'm quite partial to Coda and TextWrangler on my Mac and Notepad++ on windows. Dreamweaver has gotten way to bloated to be useful as a daily editor.

I haven't used Aptana in a while. Has it gotten more stable now?

Personally, I use Notepad++.Notepad++ is used by many coders, BUT... it is only useful if you know how to code by hand. It is not a WYSIWYG editor. The best thing about Notepad++, though, is that you can use it to hand-code in many different programming languages. Oh, I forgot to mention that it's also FREE, as well.

I use gedit when I'm on my Ubuntu system, I try to do the majority of my work on Ubuntu. When I'm on my Windows system and find myself needing to do something, I use Notepad2. I've tried gedit for Windows and it just doesn't feel the same on Windows as it does on a Gnome desktop.

When Microsoft learns to make a web browser (exhibit: win phone 7 browser based on IE7 and IE9 CSS3 support) I'll consider their dev tools. As of now there's not much benefit if your not writing .net

You know what, I'm going to forgo all of the Microsoft per-conceptions for once and give this Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2010 Express a try.

I've never heard of it, haven't tried anything for web development from Microsoft since Frontpage 7 or so years ago, and I'm feeling curious.

// Edit - After waiting over an hour for it to install I gave up and hit the cancel button. Another 15 minutes later it finally quit doing whatever it was doing and said "You've successfully installed ..." so I gave it a whirl. I can see how this tool might come in handy if everything you're using already comes from Microsoft, I couldn't even get it to open one of my existing sites via the built-in FTP connector though. It connected, but for whatever reason it was giving me a gzipped copy of the files as if it was requesting them via HTTP.

I'd rather use something like Dreamweaver if I were going to use a tool suite like this. As it sits though, my Gnome desktop by itself is an easier to use website management platform.

None whatsoever ... I have had experience with .net (VB) In VWDE and PHP in PHPDesigner and I have formed my opinion on both languages and applications ... VWDE is basically the same thing as PHPDesigner, the one is just for .net and the other for PHP, so from an application point of view they're both pretty good ...

I prefer using PHP over .net any day ... I remember wanting to just insert an image into my .net site and then the code is 2-3 lines long, it's way too much code for what it actually does ...

Well I used Dreamweaver when I first started learning all of these languages, but for some time now I have stuck solely with Notepad++.

It's the best.

Beside Dreamweawer, which is undoubtedly the best tool, I use Namo Web editor (who is nicknamed Dreamwewers Killer) and Notepad++ (What is ultra lightweight and totally free)...

I tend to use dreamweaver for 3 reasons:
1. It automatically inserts the DTD, and can be easily changed (not something I'll ever remember off the top of my head)
2. Commands > Apply Source Formatting (my coding habits are messy at best)
3. All linked css and javascript files are opened with my html file.

Other than that, theres no reason for me to use it. I could just as easily use notepad++ for free, but oh well. It's already paid for.

i use notepad++,

I'm different to everyone else on here - I use a WYSIWYG editor called 350pages. I appreciate the ease of use of being able to position objects exactly where I want rather than fight code. I'm not too good at visualising things!

I use Dreamweaver when editing files on my site, because it makes it a lot easier to edit and update the files. It helps some, with indexing and closing tags, but it's also a pain sometimes. Definitely more pros than cons.
