    Unanswered: good PHP editor

    I know this topic is a bit overused, but truly saying I still haven't find an answer on this question!

    There are a lof of good "syntax-highlighting" text-editors that successfully highlight what you order them. But I haven't yet seen one that could met my following requirement ... Currently I still use Macromedia's HomeSite even though it's too overloaded with useless stuff (IMHO), but it has that nice feature that other editors don't (at least I haven't yet found/seen one):

    - when you edit .php file it highlights all syntax for HTML tags and whether meets "<?php " or "<? " it still keeps correctly highlighting HTML tags but from now on all coding text goes on silver background (instead of pure white for 'pure' HTML )

    Does any other editor (preferrably free) supports such feature, so that I could simply change only background color for block "<?php ?>" and all other syntax highlighting left untouched?

    TIA.
    Yours faithfully,
    Yaroslav Zaremba

    Arrow EditPlus 2.11c

    Its simple - but I've seen a lot - and it's the best.
    Better as the Zend package. Better as Notepad.

    My recommendation still stands at http://www.crimsoneditor.com . It's free.

    PHP editor...

    I love the Zend Studio...
    Plus, I got it for a real bargain through their small business porgram...

    see:
    www.zend.com/store/products/zend-smallbiz.php

    their debugger is amazing and now they have CVS support. I still love VI but even find myself using this more and more

    I've been looking for a decent PHP editor that includes an autocomplete function for PHP commands.

    THe best I've found is PHPEdit, which is freeware, and is very good, but for some reason, the latest version won't indent code when you press tab. It just deletes it!

    I've found others that use Ctrl-Space to bring up an autocomplete dialogue, but this is very cumbersome and doesn't really lend itself to fluent coding.

    Does anyone know of any others that include this oh-so rare feature ?
