I have been using Ultraedit for over two years now. I have been pleased with it's features and have gotten accustomed to using it and only it. But I think it's about time I look into some other type of text editor. The way Ultraedit handles temp files is very very annoying. After a week of editing text , php, html, scripts, css files, I end up with tons of .bak files. You can use the option of not using temp files, but then any changes you make are saved instantly even if you do not save it. So my question is ... what text editor does everyone like for windows? Syntax highlighting and the ability to open up very big files is important to me. I don't mind paying for it if I'm going to be using it for a couple years so shareware/commercial text editors are welcome. And please ... don't say notepad.
