You should look at External Editor for authoring code through the web
without using the browser interface. The best would of course be to put
your code on the file system - nobody does serious work through the web
interface (but the Zope book gives this impression, unfortunately).
External Editor enables you to work with your favorite editor even when
doing work in the web interface.
I've installed TinyMCE and Epoz, and they're both great for
documents.. But they're both useless for writing code. Instead of
writing my own skin for TinyMCE (and reinventing the wheel), are there
indents, and (this would be amazing) Python syntax highlighting?
SciTE is the best all-round editor I've found for writing HTML, CSS,
and the occasional Python script. It has a lot of nice features, and if
you get the Windows version with extensions included, you get a really
nice and sane setup. It's also open source.
I've used a fair share of different editors throughout my work with Plone,
and I have to say that the two that I really liked are SciTE and TextMate.
TextMate is only available for OS X, though. I'm not a hardcore Python
coder, but your main use case seems to be just like mine - templates, CSS
and the occasional Python script - so SciTE should serve you well.
