My personal drugs of choice:

  gvim  - for most day to day work
  nedit  - for large amounts of "new" code.

I am yet to find someone who can tell me how to get the same
functionality as nedits Ctrl-H in vim.  I am sure it exists but I just
haven't bothered to find it.

As for syntax highlighting in vim (or gvim) I can highly recomend the
zenburn scheme.


Ah, nirvana...
