  I probably won't be of much use to you, as I'm a dyed-in-the-wool
UltraEdit user. It sounds like you are a little familiar with it already.
I've listed my favorite features of it at [1], just in case you'd like to
look again.

>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?

   I haven't seen that in an editor. The closest UE has (that I know of) is
the ability to recognize your functions and procedures and list them in a
separate window for quick navigation to them. Customizable to any language,
of course, as is the syntax highlighting. The UE site has a library of
config files for tons of languages.
