Can i use my own text editor in this project?
Do i need to run my own server so i can use my own text editor?

Doing basic level AJAX, you do need to run this through a server (not sure about jQuery, would guess so). So maybe
IIS on PC, or as I'm on Mac and use PHP as well, I just install something like
MAMP which installs Apache, MySQL and PHP. Think you can get
WAMP for PC.
Or if you have hosting, you can upload and run from there, though not recommended as it's a pain to keep uploading.

Mamp will run on Windows now, and I love Cloud9, pick your poison. Both are great!

Damien, I will have to look at the ones you use also. I am always open to new ways of doing something.
