Did you try typing
	Erlang IDE
into the search box in a web browser?
Top of the list,
	http://www.erlang.org/faq/tools.html
has a section (7.7) on IDEs.  The three I see mentioned a lot are
- distel (Emacs)
- ErlIDE (Eclipse)
- IntelliJ IDEA
syntax colouring is certainly available for Vim and BBEdit as well.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that there's an Erlang plugin
for NetBeans, called ErlyBird (http://sourceforge.net/projects/erlybird/)
which specifically offers
	syntax checking, syntax highlighting, auto-completion,
	pretty formatter, occurrences mark, brace matching,
	indentation, code folding, function navigator, go to
	declaration, project management, shell console
