Those things are cool.

I use TextWrangler [1] on mac and Vim [2] on PC/Unix for intelligent 
code colour-coding, automatic arrangement, closing tags, and powerful 
repeat functions etc.

I find these to be more intelligent and a lot less full of assumptions 
than Dreamweaver, MS Expression, or GoLive - not to mention free and 
completely unbloated.
