    That would probably work for .NET.  For HTML, CSS, and PHP all you need is a text/code editor.  An FTP program to upload your files, a graphics program to edit images.

    I'm a .net developer but like many, have been locked in a particular environment for a while.

    I don't have access to the same level of tools I do in my home office.

    At work, I have
    .Net 4.0
    SQL Server 2005

    Remote Connections to the Web Servers

    Here is a blog post about it with links to some updates that you might need:

    However, you should note that no browser provides 100% HTML5 and that each browser supports a different subset.  This page gives you a good idea of what your browser supports.  There is tab comparing many browsers also.
