    I'm just looking for recommendations for a good text editor and why?

  2. There's a great list of text editors here:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Glossary#Text_editor

    If you're on a Mac, I recommend Fraise:

    http://www.fraiseapp.com/

    It's free, open source, and packed with the same features as some of the shareware and commercial text editors.

    Thank you James for the headsup about Fraise!

    I was just using textedit and trying to sort out the header.php, styles.css and other files. Using Fraise worked really well.

    I notice the tech Wizard title. Do you happen some tips gathered for wordpress folks?

    Your site. I checked out the cool Star Wars Solo Adventures, and also came across Frost for Fauna, the almost 3 year old custom theme for WordPress. Are you planing on updating it for WordPress 3?
    It would be nice to have a theme that one can easily customize. Twenty Ten seems pretty good but it takes time to make the neccessary changes for it to look the way I want. The more intuitive changes one can make the better.

    Thanks! Have a great day!

    Yes I do. :) I publish most of my WordPress-related posts here: http://weblogtoolscollection.com/

    Actually, it still works perfectly on WordPress 3.x. In fact, that's what I'm using at http://www.macmanx.com/

    Twenty Ten seems pretty good but it takes time to make the neccessary changes for it to look the way I want.

    If you're looking for a theme that's like Twenty Ten and even easier to customize, try Coraline: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/coraline

    I use M$ Expression Web. Although a full wysiwyg editor it is excellent for html, css, js, php coding and features autocomplete, syntax highlighting and a great css property editor. Also much cheaper than Dreamweaver (free if you're a student.)

    Else notepad++ is not bad
