You shouldn't have to rely on a program to help you spell. And you should have learned to write valid XHTML in the first place.
Sorry, I use Notepadd++ and I absolutely love it.
Yeah... I shouldn't need to rely on a program to help me spell words like changeable, conscious, noticeable or possession. Sadly I have the spelling of someone who isn't an English major, and get confused when spelling sometimes. Wouldn't I look wonderful with spelling mistakes on my page?
Man, I feel bad about my English now. And here I am thinking that I am one of the 3% of the people on the internet with quality spelling and grammar.
Oh, and about valid XHTML... I feel bad not being able to spot errors in my HTML document.
I'm working on Windows, so my preference lies with Dreamweaver. Syntax highlighting, filesystem dialog which I can focus on specific projects with integrated ftp abilities, and multiple file search and replace. Alls I need, neatly rolled into one. It's a little overkill because it has a million other features, but I just ignore them.
Aptana has far to much useless cruft for my liking and i hate Jedit. I found it slow and cumbersome but thats just me, although the built in FTP support was kind of good as apposed to the one in Dreamweaver.

Aaron, you need a space in your META tag, and a closing quote in your shortcut icon LINK. That and your page is extremely div happy for no apparent reason, but otherwise is semantically correct at that point.
The only thing I really don't like about DW to date is that it's really inconsistent with tabs. Sometimes it puts them in as tabs, other times as spaces, yet other times it converts them from tabs to spaces when the document is reopened. That annoys the hell outta me, but otherwise I like it just fine.
Nope, all divs were closed. Top 3 are closed at the bottom. Plainlinks was closed by the BR, the top link group has two divs, both closed, one at the end of the middle string, one at the bottom of the group, and the second link group only has one div, closed at the bottom.
It's definitely handy to have something on hand to help you with typo's - I make them all the time - I don't think it should be relied upon however. Even a syntax validator can make mistakes.
