Plain text editors are best, but if your looking for something with a graphical interface, bluefish has a nice interface with syntax highlighting. While it still lacks the ftp upload feature that EditPlus has, the developers are working on it. Hopefully they can get it going soon.

emacs all the way

i really recomend emacs. it has syntax highlighting and some basic options that can be a big help. maybe i'm just a snob when it comes to these things, though. text-editors 100%.

# HTML editors
Personally, I use the editor in Midnight Commander when in console and gnotepad+ (gnp is the command to launch it) when in X.
