I work on a site that requires us to have a code editor that lets us copy & paste strings in Chinese, Korean and Japanese. Homesite's support for this was not great, and required a step that let us copy the "garbled" characters that are assembled together to form the proper asian characters. DreamWeaver's support seems better. It lets us copy & paste with one step, and we can see the asian characters rendered right within the editor itself.

But I am finding Dreamweaver MX2004 to be very sub optimal. In so many other ways. It is too clunky, too slow, I miss the simplicity and easy "save to" ftp connectivity and dislike the 'Manage Sites' functionality.

Can anyone reccomend a good code editor that supports double-byte characters and UTF-8 as well.

Any advice is appreciated.
