|Windows gives us a basic text editor...Notepad. I never much
liked it because it was limited in the size of the documents
it could open and - especially - it had a really ugly type face.
Consequently, I almost never used it, used Wordpad instead.

Lots more too but that last one was the kicker for me. Whenever
I download a file, I save a small text file in it that can be

copy and paste it into the address bar.
- has no size limitation on documents
- let's you switch back and forth between two fonts of your choice
- has a decent "search and replace"
- handles hyperlinks
You can get Metapad here.
