Also, Dreamweaver is NOT a text editor; sorry to all the DW fans. It has the capability to edit text files, but it lacks a number of features that should be available from a text editor. It’s a web editor and IMHO not a very good one at that.

I’d love to hear your reasoning behind this.

Color coding, snippets, auto complete, ftp…

With you on that. I don’t use DW from day to day, but I used to when I was big into PHP development. DW is a complete, fully featured editor with plenty-a-helpings of extra odds and ends.
