Do you mean an editor to create HTML pages or a Rich Text Editor for you web site?

Right now , i am trying to learn creating static-web pages using HTML , CSS ,( may be later HAML and Sass) , javascript and jquerey

So mostly i need

1. AutoCompletion Feature
2. Indentation
3. Colouring
4. Easy View


I was checking "Notepad++" ... It seems good. Please tell any other Text Editor if you know.

Moreover i dint get the term "Rich text Editor " ???

There is no "best" when it comes to editors. Everyone has their preferences. The best thing for you to do is try several out and decide which is best for you. Since you mentioned Notepad++ I'm assuming you're using Windows.

Here is a google search I just did:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=windows+html+IDE&aq=f&aqi=g1&aql=f&oq=

and also

http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=windows+html+editors

You, too, have the power to search.
