Editor name: Notepad ++
Web site link: http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/uk/site.htm
Price: Free Open Source
Brief description:

Notepad ++ is a free (as in "free speech" and also as in "free beer") source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL License.

Based on a powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad++ is written in C++ and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size. By optimizing as many routines as possible without losing user friendliness, Notepad++ is trying to reduce the world carbon dioxide emissions. When using less CPU power, the PC can throttle down and reduce power consumption, resulting in a greener environment.

Editor name: Netbeans (PHP bundle)
Web site link: http://netbeans.org/
Price: Free
Brief description: I don't do static sites anymore, so everything I do has some PHP content. For more complex projects it's a godsend. For example, I can start typing a WordPress template function and have it autocompleted with a popup listing the arguments - 9 times out of 10 I don't have to look anything up in the Codex.

HTML and CSS support is good, with autoformatting, code folding and syntax highlighting plus the ability to save and insert code snippets.

Added bonuses: local/remote file sync via FTP, SVN support, too much to list. Go chck it out. It rocks.

Came here to post this. Sublime text is easily the best ide I've ever seen. I'd buy it if it wasn't for the high price, just to support the developer. Also, that screenshot is from ST1, ST2 has a slightly nicer gui (better shaped tabs, etc)

They also produce terrible websites with terrible buggy bloated code that rarely pass any form of validation and generally load slow.

Brief description:
CakePHP: the rapid development php framework.
CakePHP makes building web applications simpler, faster and require less code.
The things you need are built-in. Translations, database access, caching, validation, authentication, and much more are all built into one of the original PHP MVC frameworks.
No complicated XML or YAML files. Just setup your database and you're ready to bake.
Instead of having to plan where things go, CakePHP comes with a set of conventions to guide you in developing your application.

All right, I'll bite and wait for the flame grilling from those of you who hate WYSiWYG  :pp

A fully WYSiWYG HTML5 and Flash editor for Windows. Offers freeform design and enhanced HTML5 slideshows, timelines, drag and drop, collision detection and shape tweening etc.
