    PHP Editors...

    Hi all, just getting into php, and was wondering what program(s) you use when editing/creating php scripts. I have wrote some very basic test scripts (from a book) using NOTEPAD...and find it ok, but it woud be nice if different text colors could be used to make the layout easier to work with What program do you use ??Many thanks Matt.

    Divs sizes

    Hi all,quick question.I am playing around with some basic templates and I am just getting into CSS and using divs also, my question is when I give dimensions to the div, I put my content in (text) but the div changes shape with the text..which I dont want? How do I lock the width and height of a div so that it will not change shape at all ?Thanks for your time Matt.
