php/html editor

hi all Ive just set up a mysql, Apache server with php support in order to eventually create an E-Commerce web site.

However I have never used php before and was wondering what the best gui /non-gui editor I can use on Linux is i.e. one that highlights different languages in different colours etc....

Check out . I've used it a bit for HTML (I still prefer plain text editors...) but I don't know about PHP...

I think BlueFISH is a very good choice for php aswell as other web-stuff.

I only hand code my pages (since they're so small anyway), and I still love Bluefish. I have no idea how powerful it is for PHP or writing JavaScripts, etc, but as far as just text editing, it makes it a whole lot easier than regular ol' Notepad

I like how it highlights different tags different colors, and the little bar on the side for quickly switching between page's code is handy as hell.

Hey, I'm just a hobbyist, the little things impress me.

Personally, I've always used Kate (Kde Advanced Text Editor I think). Comes with kde, and the code folding thing in 3.1 is just genius. Don't know how I ever did without it.
