Try SciTE [ http://www.scintilla.org ]

Free, syntax highlighting for about every language you can imagine, plus 
you can customize/add your own highlighting rules.

Also has case folding, and can do function signature lookups for PHP 
(and other languages).

What it doesn't have : FTP/CVS support.
