If you need to create or edit text files and want something with more options than the default Notepad/WordPad programs that come with Windows but don't need the power and complexity of a full-fledged word processor, check out NotePro. Although it has many powerful features typically found in a word-processor, it's very simple to use.
NotePro has a clean, attractive interface that puts nearly all the options you'll need right on the well-designed button bar. NotePro handles standard text files, and also creates and saves Rich Text Format, Word, Windows Write, and HTML files used by Microsoft Word and other word-processors. You can have multiple documents open at one time.
