IDE for all!
I have been delving into web developing and now that I have offically passed XHTML and CSS I feel that I am ready to start with actual scripting languages. I plan to go this route:
Before I start freelancing and getting into the real work. But I have been using notepad for HTML and CSS and was wondering if there is a IDE that can cover all these in an easy manner.
I am looking for it to be free, I do have Dreamweaver CS5 if that is the best but I always hear Eclipse and things mentioned but was wondering if there is a better free one that supports all these three. I tried searching but I can't seem to find the right answer.

Also: there is no "best" IDE. The only real advice is to try out IDEs until you find one you like. They all have advantages and they all have disadvantages; you need to find out what matters most to you.

I see, well I just wanted to get opinons on what people personally favor and for what reasons? I would like to go into a IDE and configure it knowing that I won't have too many problems ahead or that I don't got to look for things only to find out I can't do that.
As a starting web developer I am not sure what I want in an IDE but just maybe something to help visualize in a colorful manner and if something that can point out errors to me before hand would be great! I have looked into Dreamweaver CS5 and like it for what I need but was just wondering other peeps opinions.
