Help me find a good set of tools for creating bookmarklets.

I want to write some bookmarklets to fix some problems / add feature on some web sites I visit. I've written one or two small ones previously, but in a very hack-ish way that I can see will quickly become a PITA. Looking for development tools (free, hopefully).
- Prefer Windows, rather not have to use Linux, Mac is not possible.
- Prefer Firefox, Chrome is doable, I'd be surprised if someone recommends IE.
- Editor: I have my preferred one (Textpad) but I don't need anything fancy like context coloring or automatic completion.
- jQuery? Should I be using jQuery? It seems like it's almost standard these days, but I've never touched it. And is it sensible, or even possible in a bookmarklet?
Thanks for any suggestions.
