      • There is CodeMirror and Ace. They are both good.

          I prefer ACE. It offers emmet support (used to be zencoding).

          to learn about emmet watch this video: http://emmet.io/

          Some beginner advice:

          If you prefer to work on a dark background you can change the theme under system settings -> ace. I recommend solarized_dark or pastel_on_dark.

          If you work on a dark background, change the font size too. 15px is just fine for me.

          Learn the keyboard shortcuts: You get a full list of all shortcuts with:

          alt+cmd+h or ctrl+alt+h.

          Some of them don't work on my Mac, but if your are working on Windows you'll be probably fine.

          One I use very often is Fullscreen: alt+cmd+q /

          The emmet part is truly awesome.

          Type:

          ´´´
          #page>div.logo+ul#navigation>li*5>a{Item $}
          ´´´
          and hitting tab will result in something like this:
          ´´´
          <div id="page">
          <div class="logo"></div>
          <ul id="navigation">
          <li><a href="">Item 1</a></li>
          <li><a href="">Item 2</a></li>
          <li><a href="">Item 3</a></li>
          <li><a href="">Item 4</a></li>
          <li><a href="">Item 5</a></li>
          </ul>
          </div>
          ´´´
