I'm actually using Expression Web at the moment (being a good Corporate Citizen).

I've used Dreamweaver, Visual Studio Web, Notepad, TextPad, Eclipse and a bunch of other small editors and yeah since its all HTML + JavasCript through and through, its whichever blows your hair back really.

I'm brewing a "SideBar Gadget Designer" in Windows Forms or Web Forms in my spare time.

I use Dreamweaver (though not really through choice as it's the only web design tool I have atm :)) and Photoshop/Paint Shop Pro. The main problem I have with Dreamweaver is that it sometimes likes to do things for you, usually when you don't want it to. It would be nice if there was a way to preview a Gadget without having to load it into the sidebar, too. Unfortunately the System.* object won't work in IE, otherwise the preview would be possible.

I might try Expression Web and see what that's like, though...

Just a simple text editor like scite or, to better manage the project, vs2005

>>Unfortunately the System.* object won't work in IE

There is a workaround, instead of location.reload(), try location.href = 'mygadget.html'

I'm using VS 2005 for debugging but I'm using uestudio '06 for editing.

VWD funnily enough. I'd be using VS2005 but I've heard some horror stories of the compatibility issues between that and Vista.

At first I used Notepad, but for better editing I use VS2005 now, also when there's always the compatibility note at startup.

Up to now I had no problems with compatibility between VS2005 and Vista, and hope, that there won't be some in future...
