Hi Adriano,

So far I've used:

* Sun One Studio CE 4 (free) - an excellent, fully featured IDE, for Java
and JSP, with code completion drop-downs. Limited support for HTML and none
(that I can find) for JavaScript.

* MS Visual InterDev - again, an excellent (if commercial) IDE, supporting
ASP and AFAIR some scripting languages, too (JavaScript? VBScript?) with
code completion drop-downs.

* For plain-vanilla text editing with some intelligent recognition of file
types/scripting, I'd recomment HAPEdit which is freeware and surprisingly
good. I used EditPlus for a long while which is also good, but for my money
HAPEdit has the edge by some way.

    What's your text editor of choice?
    What special features has it got and what programming and markup
languages does it support?

    I've used, amongst others, Dreamweaver, UltraEdit, plain old notepad
and VIM [all mainly for (X)HTML, CSS and JavaScript]. However I can't
say I'm fully satisfied with any of the above.

    I've tried other solutions for ASP and PHP and found great features on
it I'd like to see on other IDEs. One of the features I'd like to have
is the possibility to group a specific block of code/markup and expand
and collapse it. Anyone?
