    notepad compatible text editor


    i'm doing some web design work and i'm wondering if anyone can recommennd me a text editor that is compatible with notepad under Windows?

    i really love gedit... it has the coloring effects and some tab feature that i love having in Editplus 3

    the only problem is, tabs seems to be unrecognized by editplus/notepad...

    any sugestions? cheers

    Don't know feature-wise, but 'leafpad' available in LXDE, looks exact linux-copy of 'notepad'. Have you tried it?

    notepad compateble text editor

    my suggestion is better use Emacs
    its powerfull text-editor with lot many features...
    download emacs for windows and install it....
    after installing emacs you need to know basic command for operating emasc...dont worry this manual u will get along with emacs....means every start -up of emacs..first it will display some options ...there you will find manual option
    here is the link
