Editing Lisp on Windows

It's the season to be Lispy lalalalalaaa ...
Well, reading JoS you would think it is anyway, so I don't feel too out-of-place asking this question here.

Appart from Emacs, what is your favorite Lisp editor on Windows? Right now I am testing the Corman Lisp editor. My target Lisp environment is Allegro Common Lisp.
Any recommendations?

Franz Allegro CL is a RAD tool for LISP. A trial version is available.

A long time ago, when I was a student, I used Apteryx LISP, which had a good IDE, but the company seems to have disappeared a long time ago, and the product is nowhere to be found.

:-( It's a pity - it was a good product.

I have Franz Allegro CL, but I am looking for a nicer editor.

Not bad, although the differences between Common Lisp and Scheme trow of the syntax coloring.
The lack of support for the mouse wheel kills it for me I'm afraid.

On Windows I've heard of:

Nicolai Czempin just made a couple quick initial releases of his Eclipse plugin.

I just use plain emacs. ;)  I should install ILisp...

You could try Leo, http://leo.sourceforge.net/ , but you have to change your ideas about what an editor is for to use it to its best advantage.
