I'm not sure that's the type of editor we're talking about - I believe it's supposed to be WYSIWYG editors. Ron, can you clarify?

TinyMCE is not an application, it's used for dropping into projects for adding rich text editing features to textareas...

I think we're talking any kind of editor.... hell, TopStyle Lite is a stand-alone CSS editor.

What about a list of editor's for rich text editing.
FCKEditor - I tried it, it was working great, now everytime I install it I get the error's for page cannot be found
tinymce - Don't really want every text area going like that

Since this is editor's, anyone have a list of good rich text editors.

OK, I've officially made the switch from Dreamweaver to Eclipse. Not only is it a free alternative, but the extensions you can get for web development are out of this world! It supports SVN repositories to allow versioning of your apps. Besides that, you can install xdebug in your PHP installation, and it actually allows you to manually step through your code and debug like you would in a compiler for other languages. One other huge feature to me is the fact that it takes advantage of PHPDoc syntax and actually creates an ongoing outline of your entire application (all classes, functions and includes!).

Very, very cool software. Also, if you're into Perl or Python for writing up any CGI scripts or other comparable sister code for your PHP, Eclipse has plugins that handle all your needs for those languages, too. Of course, it handles Java since that was it was made for, but I don't do any Java development on there.

Very, very nice toolset. The Weeb Tools Platform would be the best spot to start for people in here, most likely.

I would have to say that www.eclipse.org is the  best editor I have ever used. I agree 100% with Obsidian.

I love the PHP Syntax Debugging feature!
Note: I do not test most of my code before posting, be aware!!!!

Programmer's Notepad 2 - Open source, free, lightweight, highly configurable. The binaries are for Windows. There's also something called pypn, which I guess is pnotepad using python, but I haven't tried it yet.

Beginner Tips:
. The more effort you show, the more effort others are likely to put into helping you.
. Think your problems through. Use a little logic and in almost every case you will be able to find what's going on. . References abound. Google's your friend, and manuals aren't hard to find.

I love eclipse.
I was skeptical until I read obsidian's view.  However I tried it.  I have adobe's line on my desktop but now
I developer on the laptop some, and it's GREAT for having here.
