Specifically what I am looking for is a program that allows you to open, edit, and save  files via ftp. In addition, UltraEdit will color code your source as you are wokring which speeds up many processes such as search through your code. Xemacs does not have either of this abilites as far as I can tell.

intreeg,

What kind of code are you writing?  Emacs always color coded my source for me.

Mainly ASP, HTML, Javascript, VBScript, etc. I am currently trying to migrate myself away from windows. However, the site that I maintain is all MS technology so I need to be able to interface with the site as I would from Windows. While the UltraEdit functionality is not crucial it is helpful.

Ok I see how to open via ftp, is there a way to browse the site though instead of having to type the entire path?

Nevermind, figured that out. Now I guess its down to wether or not it will color code HTML and ASP... which is not the bigger concern.

That link looks interesting, I do not necessarily need the closing tag stuff though. And at this point I think I am just going to say good enough for now and work without the color coding. I assume from your last post that emacs does not nativly support web dev languages.

intreeg,

I'm afraid I don't know as I've never tried and can't try right now :-(.  You could just try opening a .html file and see if it works.

As it appears at this point it does color code HTML, JS, and CSS for sure. I found a FAQ that says you need a VB support file in order to color code ASP. So I am looking into that, I will post my results.
