I'm trying to figure out if my company can use slick edit.  Currently we are using another tool but we are trying to replace it and Slickedit is a possibility.  I'm trying to match up the requirements from the users of the tool.  Does anyone know if these features exist in Slickedit.  these requirements were what was provided by the tool users so I'm not completely sure what they all are.  thanks for the help.  I have filled in where i was able to find info from the site.  thanks.

In reviewing your list, I think SlickEdit has most of the features you're looking for, except I'm not sure about "Export to HTML/RTF" and the syntax highlighting questions. I just wanted to point out that you can see some of these features in action from our SlickEdit Cool Features Web page: http://www.slickedit.com/content/view/353/217
Note that our file compare feature is called "DIFFzilla" in the Cool Features list.

Hopefully others will chime in with more detail for you.

PS. I also thought I would mention, if you haven't already, you could download a trial version and check out the documentation if you would like more detail on the features and capabilities.
