    now i got it
    i don't like notepad, but anywhere i go ... it's there
    in win xp, the only good thing i noticed ( i used it only few hours) is the possibility to CTRL+F for Find
    anyway, Edit+ is the one for me

    Well, I don't code with notepad but sometimes, when I get a simple syntax error and the context menu of the file is closer than the editor window (I have notepad in Send To), I just open the file in notepad and add " or ; or ) or whatever - it is sometimes faster than using a real editor.

    Btw, I would use FP Express to write a simple long text with some really simple formatting - it is a bit faster than when you write the HTML stuff yourself. (Well, I don't do that sort of things myself and I pay attention to xhtml syntax, so my files are usually formatted by Tidy HTML, then reformatted by hand.)

    Notepad is especially useful when you're working on a system where there is nothing else to code in. Example: at school, I have the choice between notepad, Turbo Pascal, "copy con file.html" and Word 2k.

    It should be possible to write an editor in HTML/JScript that would be more comfortable than notepad ... why does MS still provide it without any development ("Ctrl+F added" is _not_ a new feature, it is a bugfix to make notepad accord at least a bit to MS's own standards)?

    >>So out of curiousity is notepad for xp any better than for win95?
    munkfish, we have got a 'status bar' which shows a line #!!! Just outstanding , 'm not sure if it was before, so I think it is a feature.
    And you know I mean that.

    Line numbering means error checking is easier.

    Its called brevity, but on an explanatory note I only use ultradev because thats what the company i work for gave me when i told them dreamweaver 3 didn't do what i wanted.

    Sorry to have caused you any confusion.

    I currently use TextPad 4.5 on Windows boxes, with the syntax file for php.
    At the moment though, I'm considering looking at HTMLEdit to see if it can handle PHP as well: I know there are add-ons for Javascript and client-side coding; I don't know if they support server side code as well....
    9 out of 10 PHP problems can be resolved by setting
    PHP Code:
    error_reporting(E_ALL);
    ini_set('display_errors'1); 
    php -l <filename> will identify 9 out of the remaining 10 problems
    Remember, the command line is your friend

    Development Projects:
    PHPExcel
    PHPPowerPoint

    They almost always are. No regular(and good programmer) on the board I visit most, Gathering of Tweakers, uses notepad. They all use other editors, just because notepad is too limited.

    But I was referring to what munkfish said:

    I think he was referring to the hardcore hacker wannabes who say they use notepad for editing code because it sounds 'l33t', when in fact they use frontpage express and only pretend to code. :P
    Some people, when confronted with a problem, think I know, I'll use regular expressions. Now they have two problems. - Jamie Zawinski, in comp.lang.emacs
