    Is there an opensource (or freeware?) text editor that does:

    • Syntax highlighting for HTML inside PHP code.
    • UTF-8.
    • Re-indent. (Like in Xcode.)
    • Use X spaces for tabs.
    • Soft guideline for X characters width.

    I don't think Textwrangler is Open Source... it's free though.

    Fraise (was Smultron) is another option that has some nice features.

    X-Code

    You could actually try using Apple's X-Code. It's free and does code-highlighting and is pretty feature-packed.

    I've used Smultron for a while and like it. I had no idea they changed the name to Fraise (possibly the only name worse than Smultron). I'll have to try that and look into the others mentioned as well, as I'm always on the lookout for a good (free) text editor.

    XCode is not what I would choose to create a webpage.
