i'm looking for a light replacement for dreamweaver, that does the same color coding that dreamweaver does.
any input would be great.

are you just using dreamweaver as a text editor or are you using all the bells and whistles?

I've used both and for being the Express edition it's still fairly nice. Great syntax highlighting, IMO.

I think you'll like VSExpress then. Syntax highlighting and tag completion are great.

yep ... that would be the way to go ... i am just starting to use Visual Studio again since i'm going to be playing with .NET

VS2005 even has its own web server, you won't need IIS anymore.

I found Visual Studio even more processor demanding than DW.
There are plenty of text editors with syntax highlighting. Browse the free software sites.
I would stick with DW for text editing. Even 2004/MX will do and they should be going cheap now that CS3 is available.

I believe Notepad 2 includes syntax highlighting.
Don't know if it's the same colours as DW though. Perhaps you can customise it.
Hope that helps.

True, the Express edition isn't as bad as the full blown version, although
