    Hello Lindsay,

    There is no recommended IDE for HTML5 code editor, hence what your preferences for html editor are should suffice. A few random options you might consider are TextMate, PageSpinner, SciTe, etc.

    you understand the IDE is almost important as the SDK - the JScript is traditionally crap for developing and without a proper IDE to keep you from making a mess in the code and help with properties, value types, object inheritance, debugging, interface preview etc.. you are spending 5 times more time to develop same thing with a proper development language (.NET/MS VS or AS3/Eclipse).
    Unfortunately to date there is no such IDE - there are a lot of attempts that make things worse and practicably manage to slow down the HTML 5 penetration with years.
    The good think is we already have few very good SDK's including Kendo - now we just need one or two years for the IDE's to catch up.

    Try JetBrain's WebStorm. It's made for JavaScript although a little bloated:

    For light scripting, I like Sublime Text :)
