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.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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
