Configuring a connection to the host on Aptana wasn't difficult, but maintaining the file path in the Project Explorer was, somewhat; like Eclipse, with which I have some experience, it's rather finicky. I've got what appears to be duplicate paths, where one is the remote and the other local. I work in the local system, which saves to my computer, and then synchronize the two, via the latter's connection to the host, to push changes. (On one occasion, I had re-opened the closed software to find my web project had disappeared -- this probably due to an issue with space on my hard-drive(!) which had caused my computer to crash and not save properly -- so I don't know if my re-writing the files or re-downloading them from the host was a causal factor in all this or whether it is always the case, regardless, so I'll need to look into it further and hope there aren't any issues going forward!) Otherwise, Aptana's predictive text capability, if you will, is really, very convenient, as is the sort of confirmation it gives of the validity of elements and attributes.
