You can use Aptana Studio [A Free IDE] with options to use any scripting Language , Just ad extentions to it and bang!. It do support auto suggest features

Another option is , if you do not want much installation is:

notepad++ [Best editor, also has custom extensions for all languages support]

I ´m still trying some of the others editors but WYSIWYG is not what we are looking for...

I´ll try Aptana today but I wonder if Notepad++ has WYSIWYG view

Help us understand here, please.  In the original question you wrote, "I need a free WYSIWYG Editor..." and at ID:36484773 you wrote, "but WYSIWYG is not what we are looking for..."  

What do you really want?  If you can make that clear, maybe we can help.  Thanks, ~Ray

Thanks Ray!

Let me explain a little bit more, We use Visual Studio for asp projects and dreamweaver for PHP ones,  but considering that dreamweaver has a very powerful WYSIWYG editor we make all the design changes in that software (HTML, CSS, etc.).

We want to stop using dreamweaver and that´s why we are searching a free WYSIWYG editor with similar capabilities.

As far as I see some of those free editor doesn´t interpret CSS and asp/php code and that´s why the WYSIWYG is not as real as dreamweaver.

I wonder if what we need is too much for a free editor and we actually have to buy the upgrade of dreamweaver.

Thanks!
