Dreamweaver, Visual Interdev, and VS.NET (sort of) but those aren't free (not even cheap). search google for one. you won't find one that will test them as they need to be run on a server. i just use an html editor with ASP highlighting.

I use Crimson Editor (it's freeware) to write ASP/JS/VBS, C/C++, and Perl.
In addition, it it also useful for Java, PHP, and a few others. It color codes as necessary.
If I were going to pay for an IDE, I'd get Cold Fusion.

If you mean ASP.NET then yo can use Microsoft's free editor called Matrix.

ASP not asp.net
I am using ASP not asp.net. Matrix is good for asp.net. I installed Crimson from the internet. maybe i am not doing it properly, but in normal IDE's when you would write 'Dim X as string' then string and other possible forms of datatypes appear automatically. But with crimson its not happening?
I hope i am able to make myself clear. Is there a better userfriendly IDE?

That's not an IDE issue it's an ASP issue. you do not specify data types in ASP. everything is variant, just Dim VariableName

First, in asp (asp2/3) you don't "Dim X as String", you just "Dim X". Asp variables are all variant datatypes with different subtypes.
You are looking for intellisense. InterDev is the only IDE/Editor I know that has any type of intellisense. I use InterDev for asp 2/3 development, primarily for the debug capabilities. It makes life much easier to single-step through your asp code to debug.

Yes, Visual Studio does include Visual Interdev...

I don't mean to get in a pissing contest with Doug, but I've used InterDev, and I'm less than impressed. There are trade-offs for the ease of debugging. They obviously don't bother Doug, but they annoy me enough that I quit using InterDev.
Different strokes for different folks. If you like InterDev, then I recommend that you use it. If you're going to pay money for something, then Cold Fusion's editor is pretty cslick.
