I agree about WYSIWYG.  I use UltraDev a lot, but don't use the WYSIWYG very
much again more. UltraDev is great at managing your site and syntax
highlighting.  I love the update feature (change a file/image name and it
updates all pages that use them to the new name)

Also about plain programming editors, I like PFE too. Didn't know it was
unsupported now(see Jay Blanchard comment above)

Exactly.  Homesite is, in essence, Dreamweaver MX without the WYSIWYG.
Syntax highlighting and code completion make it a very viable editor.  I
can't stand that WYSIWYG crap.  I'm plenty good at messing up my own code
without assistance, thank you very much! :o)

Hence the happy medium of Homesite..... acts as a basic text editor but
allows some support for coding when needed/wanted..... IMHP
