I'm trying to find a text / code editor that can do matching tags ie. find the other half of a pair for me

I know I had one ages ago, but I can't remember the name :(

Any recommendations?

Say you have a page that someone else wrote with loads and loads of divs. The problem is matching the opening div with the closing one.

Does that make sense? (I know my original question was badly worded)

it should if you are looking for the next </div> after the opening one.
notepad gives you the option of looking down or up the page.

best coding practice is the separate the lines with tabs.
MX8 has this future now where you can hide certain parts of your code blocks

Unfortunately Notepad will only find the 'next' </div> so if you're starting at the 10th <div> down (out of 20 nested) and want to find it's closing tag, Notepad will only show you the closing tag for the 20th <div>.

I know what your after but haven't come across one as yet. :confused:

I'm just looking or any decent text editor in fact :D

HTML-Kit (www.chami.com/html-kit/) can do that (either in the base program or one of the small extensions), as far as I know.

Great editor, the only editor i've ever used. Big update coming soon.

Hey blacknight, I just downloaded Notepad++ and it has a very nice feature allowing you to expand and collapse each pair of tags. That should make it easier to find 'start' and 'end' tags.
