Not reviewed here but worth throwing into the pot for consideration is Komodo by active state. Runs on Win, OS X, and Linux and has a ton of great features. Check it out here. When you do have a little bit of money they have a full IDE as well.

Another great HTML editor is Eclipse IDE (www.eclipse.org). With the right plugins, this is a powerful tool for hand coding markup. I highly recommended it.
