Currently I'm using Sublime Text 2 portable & I have put it inside dropbox to sync with my work PC. The problem is I can't set it as a default program to open HTML/CSS/PHP etc.. files, whenever I open the (open with) dialog & browse to choose Sublime it doesn't appear in the list & therefore I can't choose it. So does anyone have a fix for this?

You should be able to select any program by selecting browse and then finding the executable. – Nick Jul 5 '12 at 20:02

Hit the Browse... button...

open with dialog

and remember to check Always use the selected program to open this kind of file.
