    I use Winsyntax.

    http://www.winsyntax.com/

    It has some pretty good syntax highlighting. It's been good for me so far.

    Editplus or UltraEdit are really good; for me anyway, bracket matching and syntax highlighting are a must. Obviously good ole' VIM is available for Win32, but I don't remember how compatible it was for PHP...

    I used DZEDIT by DZSoft - but - it has a lot of errors and the FTP function doesn't work very well. Where can I find UltraEdit?

    www.ultraedit.com

    Speaking of which, the FTP function in UltraEdit, I've found, is much faster than EditPlus. Both editors I mentioned probably have 1,000 more features than you'd use, but they are very nice.

    Textpad or Komodo get my votes.

    Textpad is full functioned, shareware with amazing regular expression matching.

    Komodo is an IDE, cots about $30 and has some really nice features like being able to expand and collapse blocks of code.

    context is quite good, although it doesn't work properly when writing php code. If you use a curly brace it will indent, but you have to manually un-indent when you have finished your loop or whatever

    Mmm indenting was discussed at great depth in another thread so I won't go into that, but what ConTEXT does is not wrong, it is down to personal preference which in this case suits me

    I dig that one too, but I wish that you could define your site. Because when you press Ctrl+W(preview), you get a nice page full of scrambled PHP.
