Isn't this Smarty?

Which IDE do you use? I work with Smarty in Dreamweaver and things
display fine (except for Smarty-generated selects, etc.)

Same with Smarty, right?

I'm not married to Smarty at all, but I've used it and liked it thus
far - why do people dislike it? What other things have people used that
I like Smarty because it is OO and easy to use. It is simple and fast,
and it includes tags and functions that I regularly need in working
with HTML: things like truncation, HTML form selects, etc.
