My personal comments on above editors

Interdev is the answer for starting script programmers, it knows properties of controls etc, has a nice debug function. But creates projects wich build much to much files and scripts then are needed (web design sucks).

dreamweaver is really good at web design and a little in scripting, has a lot of predefined scripts to do all kinds of cool stuff.

HomeSite is the best HTML editor i ever found, it know all html properties and you can easely select one.

PFE is just like notepad but with a cool feature of macro's, having to replace lang bits of code or insert long tags/code that works fine (dreamweaver also supports this)

Notepad doesn't do anything but also doesn't screw up anything like interdev or dreamweaver

Gaspy is also simple but effective


Real deticated javascript editors i haven't found yet

I used to use notepad - Notepad on win9x however cannot do search and replace and can severely mess up code downloaded from unix

I now use Homesite 4.5a for almost all coding including php (but that is not THAT great since I have not donwloaded a good highligter for php so if there is javascript/html comment  IN the php, the resto fo the file is not highlighted.

I use textpad (http://www.textpad.com/) for anything else.

PS: There is a scripting editor from allaire - it could be REALLY great if they supported it with new script docs and bugfixes
