    I'm looking for a good text editor to replace notepad for editing HTML and scripts. I've heard about UltraEdit and TextPad. Any others to look at? What do other people use?

    I've always liked NoteTab Light, plus it's freeware! Check out the link here.

    EditPlus is also a great text editor.

    I use editpad religiously.
    The Editpad Classic version is freeware I believe.

    I'll second the vote for EditPad. I believe the freeware version is now called EditPad Lite.

    Great thread!
    While it's no match for most of the programs mentioned here, I'd like to add for completeness sake Notepad+. It's also free, very small, unlimited file size support on Win9x, and opens more than one file (what a pain the original notepad is in this regard).
    ConTEXT looks very interesting, I will have a look at that, though.

    I've used TextPad (www.textpad.com) before and it's pretty decent, especially for the Java environment included, if you're a programmer.
    It is shareware with a time-based demo you can download.
