Vim's highlighting is pretty good -- the HTML highlighting
even does OK for DTML.

On a Windows box, use WebDrive to "mount" the WebDAV source
port ofyour Zope to a drive letter:

Heh, vi is where those things grew up. :)

gvim, the GUI version, lets you migrate with the mouse through
your list of open buffers (also with the classic ":n" and ":N").
In fact, this feature is almost the only reason I use the mouse
As for "global search & replace" I routinely do something like:
find . -name "*.py" | xargs grep -l "mispeld" | xargs gvim
in each buffer. On a windows box, you would need to be running
cygwin to make that work, of course :) But perhaps "Windows Find"
plus "select all" plus some fewmet magic (drag-n-dropping :)
would be equivalent.

Vim won't help here -- it just wants to be an editor, not an
operating system. :) You might check out WingIDE, BoaConstructor
(even does XML-RPC to talk to Zope!), or Komodo.
