i use homesite and turn off tag completion. it's essentially like notepad (i never use any of the tag shortcuts or stuff like that) in that it's straight coding, but with a pretty good file management system. i like to have multiple documents open and the file panel to the left. evr soft 1st page is a good free alternative, though it seems bloated. ideally i'd like something with a feature to preview files through a local web server rather than it's actual path, so i wouldn't have to open a seperate browser to demo my perl scripts and such. if anyone knows of a text editor that offers that feature, PLEASE let me know.
