|Yep, I've corrected my post. I'm glad to be a little help but disappointed we couldn't figure out the problem.|
I use a basic text editor rather than a WYSIWYG or IDE because I feel it allows me to learn the syntax better rather than relying on the software. I'm in large part a kinesthetic learner, so I learn best by doing myself. I'm also not confined to the limitations of the software and am fully open to newer techniques. Just recently, I tried going to an IDE in hopes it may speed up development, but it's not turning out that way.
Specifically, I use Notepad++ for it's syntax highlighting, line numbering, and advanced Find/Replace. Then I have my web browser up (Firefox) with add-ons like FireFTP and Firebug and the system's manual for what I'm working with (ex. PHP.net) in a browser tab.
Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.
