I use a combination of notepad and dreamweaver- not pad is nice but because im not the greatest I canct do as much. I like being able to just type without any extra features.

I use a text editor for all my programming work but I'd take bullets before I used Notepad for anything. Evil program that doesn't even follow conventions.

On Linux I use Kate for big projects and GVim for quick single file hacking (usually from the CLI). On Windows I use Notepad++ for projects and again GVim for CLI stuff and single files. When KDE4 goes live and has a Windows port I'll be moving to Kate there too (KDE4 coming to Windows is going to be the greatest thing ever. Finally Amarok and Kate on Windows).

I'd actually use a dedicated IDE if it was an actual IDE. No drag and drop nonsense but the ability to quickly see the output on a browser screen and to quickly verify the code would be nice. Also I'd like the normal stuff like templates, code snippets, refactoring tools, in line error highlighting, style critics (for the IE6 nonsense) etc. Without the browser though I probably wouldn't bother and don't really do enough web development to bother writing my dream IDE.

Anyway, I'd avoid drag and drop like the plague. Every area of programming I've seen it involved in it's more hindrance than help. Nice for knocking together prototypes maybe but the code is usually so polluted to be worth keeping.

TextPad looks more like an IDE or Project text editor than notepad.

When just getting the job done is work enough, the last thing you need is to waste time having to learn yet another computer application. Your experience with other tools should be relevant to each new application, making it possible to sit down and use that new application right away.
That's why TextPad® is so popular. Whether you simply need a powerful replacement for Notepad, a tool for editing your web pages, or a programming IDE, TextPad does what you want, the way you would expect.

There is a similar one for Mac OSX which works very well: TextMate — The Missing Editor for Mac OS X

I'm surprised at the number of people who use notepad here. I distrust code generation but notepad isn't even a good text editor and uses funny linebreaks.
