If on a  linux box Debian or KDE there is beautiful editor called Geany.
I am using it from last 4 Years now. It comes with intellisense
(auto-completion) for PHP and loads of other plugins. Code highlighting
for many languages is inbuilt. SVN support is also there. Its nothing
less than a IDE

Light weight and superb functionality. Give it a try its available for
windows as well.
