I use homesite from http://www.allaire.com/ because of the code highlighting and because I already have it.

Any editor with syntax highlighting should be ok.

I used to use Notepad...

Sorry I do it by hand. I feel I have more control over what I type. However I steal some code from some site, look at the code and make it the way I want to.

Using a editor have always restriction but is easiest way to go.

If you want just some hightlight stuff, you can use an editor such as MS Visual C++ or MS J++.

I use textpad instead of notepad for quickj editing.
Three things:
I have no js syntax highlighting (possibly installable?)
alt-s-r no longer works - a PAIN
Syncscroll doesn't alway sync - Arakis merge is a better file comparer
