    I use Coda from panic.com for php
    and CSS edit of course
    but mostly, I try to use my brains, whenever possible.

    For general editing of just about anything I use Editplus - it does syntax highlighting, add your own syntax defs, add your own tool definitions, regexp search/replace and a whole lot more.
    Its good for scripting and programming and stripping junk out of files and does column selection/cut/paste etc (good for fixing up data).

    It doesn't know about HTMLTidy, but I guess I haven't tried to teach it that.

    I have been fiddling around with htmlEdit, but each time I want to do something with it I have to download a new extension.

    I use both e text editor & intype for all php/templates (neither support multiple projects open at the same time, so i just use both at once ).

    As for editing the SS templates, both work reasonably well with HTML & Rails highlighting. I would be using the SilverStripe textmate bundle, but the filenames arent compatible with Windows. Maybe Ingo will read this post and update the files to be compatible

    Notepad++ and its FTP module.

    The best one that I can found. With perfect syntax hylighting and rich tools for playing on texts like a wizard.

    But the best part is FTP module. A tree view near program connects to my site and to edit a file just double click (downloads and displays instantly) / edit and when you click on save just uploads automaticly like working on local.

    Amazing isnt it?
