need something like dreamweaver to mainly write php code but freeware :)

I used to have dreamweaver MX, but since I upgraded to windows 7, I need to get the CS3 version which I do not plan to purchase anytime soon. I was wondering if there is some freeware application that would display the php and html code in nice different colors as it did in dreamweaver?

Notepad ++
Programmer's Notepad

If you want something a bit more like an IDE, look into Aptana Studio.
I used to use both DreamWeaver and Notepad++, now I use Netbeans, it's very good -
Angular Fundamentals

Learn the fundamentals of Angular 2, a JavaScript framework for developing dynamic single page applications.

Netbeans 6.8, just a sweet IDE for PHP and on the other hand, Aptana Studio. I didnt know much about Aptana, because once i start to use NetBeans, i completely forgot it.

I use HTML-Kit and HTML-kit Tools and PsPad.  They all have colorizing schemes for many different programming requirements.  And they're free.
