    Code Editor?

    Hi,
    I'm after a program to edit website code with but I'd like it to display in colours. I can use dreamweaver for it at work and just use it in code mode. I'm after a free one preferably! It doesn't need a "design view" I'd just like it to display various tags in different colours. Does anyone know of one? Oh a find and replace would be handy too!

    Cheers!

    ScITE is rather good [ I tend to live in it ] - not sure if it would meet your requirements though...

    A recommendation here for Komodo Edit, a free editor from ActiveState (www.activestate.com).

    http://activestate.com/Products/komodo_edit/

    As like most other code editors it can do syntax and code highlighting and a number of other things. If you are using Vista you will need to check their forums for a workaround in regards to setting a Windows Path for the temp directory.

    Best Regards,

    Hi

    Notepad++ is excellent for Windows and is available in portable format too:
