I haven't used HS for quite a while, so correct me if any of these are there as well.  But Here are a few things I like about CFE, besides what I've already mentioned. 1.  SQL code highlighting 2.  Todo list--Just add <---! Todo:{your todo title} ---> anywhere in your code and you get a new todo item in the todo view.  If you click this item later from the todo panel it will open up the correct file and drop you down to the correct spot on the page. 3.  Version control--Eclipse has basic version control built-in.  Do you need to go back after a few hours of coding?  No problem, just find the correct version from the history and restore it 4.  Working sets--group similar files into a set for later use, which makes it easier to interface with them later (all other files are hidden) 5.  Scratch pad--if you need to quickly test some code, hit F11 (or whatever you map it to) which loads a cfm file, then view the results in the internal browser 6.  Snippets--You can have complex code snippets at your fingertips, just hit a shortcut and it will drop the code in.  It will even ask you for parameters (Ex. a query name) 7.  There is a plugin that lets you view the CF logs right from the CFE IDE 8.  There is an Outline and a Methods view that gives you quick easy access to your document structure, where you can click and jump to the right section 9.  It's open source--community driven, rapid support and quick releases, and it costs $0 10.  Adobe now supports CFEclipse as the standard CFML editor for coders (not designers).  In fact, did you know that Sean Cornfield is the project manager for CFE? Again, if you know that HS does any of the above, feel free to correct me.  I know it does snippets, but I'm not sure if they are as powerful as CFE. Also, someone mentioned that HS has inline documentation, and Adobe is putting this into CFE soon (Actually I think it's going to come from Flex, but it's supposed to cover CF). ------------- This transmission may contain information that is privileged, confidential and/or exempt from disclosure under applicable law.
