I use Topstyle Pro 3.1 [1] all the time.

syntax coloring for most languages and server mapping for live preview of  
PHP / ASP files.

Site management tools are a bonus and CSS/XHTML integration is great.

Sadly Topstyle doesn't do that (yet) so I use Scite[2] when I need to  
collapse code (I also use it as my view source editor) (there's a 270k  
windows executable!)
