I use DreamWeaver for my PHP sites, but just because I like the color coding (or at least I have gotten use to it).
I know that Eclipse is the big free open source one right now that everyone is ranting and raving about. I like my heavyweight Visual Studio for ASP.NET sites, but when it comes to PHP I perfer something lighterweight like VI(If you can handle the learning curve).

You can also take a look at Dev-PHP (http://devphp.sourceforge.net/) a free editor with syntax highlighting and syntax checker. Good for starting.

I use editplus - again with highlighting - and cool ftp upload feature for (dangerously :eek: ) editing lives files!
zend have an ide http://www.zend.com/store/products/zend-studio/index.php which i've heard to be very good but they do charge for it.

I LOVE Zend Studio -
A bit pricey but totally worth it IMO. The debugging capabilities are unparalleled in any other tool I have reviewed. It is awesome if you are object oriented and work with clases. The new code folding is really great too . . .
I used to use DW and now the development/testing cycle time is greatly reduced with this tool.
Just my opinion though . . .
Oh BTW - Zend Studio runs great on Linux/UNIX as well as Windoze. Just FYI for open source OS users.
