Please don't rot your mind with an editor!!!! :)You learn so much more by using notepad and hand coding. You develope much stronger coding skills. Even with .Net I use Notepad at home...I only us VS.n

Well... actually the latest version of Dreamwaver is 8, not MX. Here's more info:http://www.macromedia.com/software/dreamweaver/

Dreamweaver8 all the way

Right now, they are equal again as usual (with 38 votes each). I use Dreamwaver 8, but despite that, I use it's hand coding abilities, which in version 8 are really well though. I hate WYSIWYG editors for reasons we all know.

2 very different groups of devlopers are making those votes. Goes to show some of us are visually and creatively inclined while others of us are more procedural and text based.
Well, technically speaking, with the exception of image editing, anything that can be done from Dreamweaver can be done with a plain-text editor. It's just a matter of if you know the codes or not. From what I understand of it Dreamweaver just does the coding for you.I personally consider myself creatively inclined and visual, yet I still choose to use notepad2 and do everything by hand, rather than let a program do it, because I prefer to know exactly what goes into the design of my website. Also, if anything ever happens to the program, or if for any reason it becomes unaccessable, I'm not left stranded with no way to edit my website.Not that that would happen to anyone here. Most of the people around here seem to have a good handle on both. Long story short, I prefer to be hands on, even if it takes longer.And frankly speaking, I prefer that it takes longer because.. well.. i have no life. heh.

You guys disappoint me.VIM is available in *all* environments (both cli version and the G version), supports *any* ascii filetype there is, as well having the most syntax highlighting files of any editor out there currently.For those of you who love text editing, but want pure power, get GVIM, and run through the tutorial, read up on the scheme's option... give it 1 week... if you dont love it, youre nuts!http://www.vim.orgSeriously, more of you need to check programs out before you try to judge them, I have literally tried almost every one of the programs on this list. As far as the full blows IDE's go, Ill stick with DW8 for general web development. If I want to have more control over things, more power on search/replace, etc I will definately stick with my VIM.DOWN WITH NOTEPAD!!!!!!!

Wow. I'm going to use Notepad2 for all my programming from now on. They even have Java and Pascal Source Code schemes!As far as I can see, the only downside is that they don't have Linux Line Endings, --because I have a Linux-- but that's okay, because I don't even know what line endings are :) . Unix is close enough, right?

Agreed! Notepad IMHO is quite good...its simple easy to understand if you set out your code correctly but sometimes gets confusing if not set out...or otherwise i just get confused by lots and lots of tags in small places...so notepad2 does highlightng? hmm...is there an editor very similiar to notepad which is just easier to read (somtimes..) or coloring the words or whatnot..also..who uses dreamweaver? i feel like having a rant..nothing professional..just to say i dont like it:P it gets annoying how it always trys to fill in the attributes your writing..even though they may not be associated with that tag..so if you could turn that off that would be nice, and...that about all really...nothng serious but i just dont like it..lol..ok i just rememberd why i dont like it..because i prefer to do coding by hand..as aspnetguy says..you probbly do develop better coding skills..coz im better then my mate..(hes like a hack at it..lol) and he has dreamweaver... and yes you learn more! good things in DM...the highlighting (it does highlight right? i only used once at friends place..) and the split screen is ok..but still im comfy with notepad... k Finished!
