Sublime Text Editor - Very nice
I've tried many text/code/ide editors: vim, scite, eclipse etc...
This one is my current favourite:
download the 1.2 version or the beta:
As you can see from the changelog, it is a very active project.
As with all editors, it always takes a while getting set up, this one is pretty feature rich, but also has 'packages' to extend it.
I'm sure you guys will like it:
Basic HTML tags completion and Snippets:
Multiple Selections and Regex Use:

Math, Columns, Multiple selections, Exec Python Code, and a "Firebug-like feature" extra:
Will try it.
Sublime Text may be downloaded and evaluated for free, however a license must be purchased for continued use
rawr. be very afraid
. Populate the AutoHotkey city. Pointless but somewhat fun. .
If it keeps developing at it's current rate, it may be one of the few software purchases i make. Considering the amount of time we spend coding/scripting; a few bucks for a really nice piece of software is the last thing on my mind.
I've just been on a quest for years, trying to find an editor that i'm completely happy with.
So far it looks very cool; so i'll keep evaluating it. I hope it works out good for you guys too!
But anyway just wanted to let yall know if you choose the Lisp syntax highlighter (View > Apply Syntax Highlighting), it will at least color your comments as well as some random words and numbers to at least give your scripts some sense of readability.
a) I agree that it's a downer to not have syntax highlighting for AHK, and
I successfully run Sublime Text on a flash drive by simply copying the installed folder to the drive.
Ctrl + scroll wheel to control text zoom level (like Scite)
Using TextMate bundle for AutoHotkey syntax highlighting (threads):
Hopefully, with a little experimentation we can get highlighting working.

unzip this into your user applications folder:
should be something similar to this>
C:\Documents and Settings\JOHN_SMITH\Application Data\Sublime Text\Packages\
All done. Ready to use.
If you need a free version of this GREAT editor, why not try the beta, found here:

Thank you very much for the update.
For anyone new to SublimeText, there's one more step beyond "All done. Ready to use."
Click View > Apply Syntax Highlighting > AutoHotKey
 This step isn't required, I don't think, if you open the AHK file from the context menu.
oh yeah found some non black colour schemes under preferences/apply colour scheme. The spell checker (on this site not in Sublime text) keeps telling me I am typing colour wrongly. I am not. There is the uk way and the us way.
