    Windows notepad is simple & good but it misses a few Vital things.
    Notepad2 has all of them and its V.light.+Free
    I needed it cause of drag and drop which is not in notepad.

    In preferences you can simplify it to the Windows Notepad interface.
    Get it Here - http://www.flos-freeware.ch/notepad2.html

    "What's this?
    The original Notepad shipped with Windows is probably the handiest program of all times, small, fast, without frills! Notepad2 tries to follow this principle, it's a small, fast and free text editor with syntax highlighting for HTML and other common languages.

    Features
    Customizable syntax highlighting:
    HTML, XML, CSS, JavaScript, VBScript, ASP, PHP, CSS, Perl/CGI
    C/C++, C#, Java, VB, Pascal, Assembler, SQL, Python, NSIS
    INI, REG, INF, BAT, DIFF
    Drag & drop text editing inside and outside Notepad2
    Basic regular expression search and replace
    Useful word, line and block editing shortcuts
    Rectangular selection (Alt+Mouse)
    Brace matching, auto indent, long line marker, zoom functions
    Support for Unicode, UTF-8, Unix and Mac text files
    Open shell links
    Mostly adjustable

    New in Notepad2 1.0.09
    Insert time/date (short form/long form) (Ctrl+F5, Ctrl+Shift+F5)
    Insert filename/path and filename (Ctrl+F9, Ctrl+Shift+F9)
    Added missing copy line command (Ctrl+Shift+C)"

    Simple

    I have it, but haven't tried it yet. I've been using EditPadLite, lately. Gotta love the tabs.

    Well, if you want to use a programmer&#39;s editor, SCiTE is pretty good.

    Hey, but what is really cool about a self-contained editor like Notepad2, you can hack the file of an windows installation CD where notepad is stored (NOTEPAD.EX_)and replace notepad before you install Windows. I&#39;m gonna do that on my next format, which is coming soon anyway.
