HTML coding with jEdit and the XML plugin

I like to code HTML in stead of using a WYSIWYG tool. After using UltraEdit for years I tried jEdit. It is free and (even for a Java program) fast, but what I like most are the plugins.

Big time saver is the XML plugin. I just love the tag completion, close tag insertion and the option to validate your HTML against the DTD.

I prefer SciTE.

Another jEdit fan here! Love using the XML plugin for quick tag closing in XHTML docs. I'm a big fan of the FTP plugin too that lets you open and save files directly to/from an FTP server so you don't have to do the whole upload/download dance too.
