Most of my new apps are ASP.NET these days but I still write and maintain some Classic ASP/VBScript web applications. I have typically used Dreamweaver but after using VS.NET for awhile, DW seems like a charming and archaic toy by comparison. I'm looking for the best Classic ASP IDE, and would like it if it could do the following:

* "Intellisense" on ASP/VBScript props and methods
* Code Outlining
* Setting up of "sites" ala Dreamweaver and both key bindings and a uploader tool for deployment
* A really good design-time preview like DW has
* One thing that VS.NET has that I really like is the abilty to navigate back to a function body from a call to that function (in VS.NET, F12)

PrimalScript may be a good option -- i haven't looked at it in a year -- but there may be other possibiltiies as well. Ideas?

Thanks!


* It would be awesome if a

The most serious contender will probably be VisualStudio 2005 or 2008

VS.NET is not a good ASP environment, it doesn't have most of the requirements I spelled out in my initial question.

I doubt you will find anything better. The problem is that most are "happy" with what Microsoft provides, and well there have been contenders in the non .NET area, but they bombed themselves out of the market (more or less), So in the end there are just three big IDEs left.
MSVC, Eclipse, Netbeans.

And that's as much as you'll get....
