It's how I make my living, but I'm not sure how serious it is :)

I use Eclipse, specifically the EasyEclipse for PHP distribution you can
It does highlighting on php/css/xhtml (not sure about JS as I don't do
that) including completion for (x)html tags, php functions etc.
It also does a lot of other excellent stuff (quick diff, syntax checking
for php, error highlighting, integration with subversion, to name but a
few) that make it by far my fave editor for php dev work. It also helps
that it's java, so I can use the same IDE on any OS I happen to find
The only downside I suppose is that being java you need a VM installed and
a good sized chunk of RAM.
