Notepad Replacement

Recommended Posts

NotepadEx doesn't really support Unicode, it seems. I'm using Unired now when I need Unicode support. But it's quite slow, so I looked at a couple other Notepad replacements.

Notepad2 - Requires IE4+ SHLWAPI.DLL because of an unresolved dependency.

Metapad - Requires RICHED20.DLL. I downloaded the recommended one, and then it ran. But no real Unicode support.

The reason I need Unicode is because I'm converting a site that uses Japanese characters for the Japanese titles of games. If only SeaMonkey's Composer used a good DOCTYPE and didn't destroy the mark-up you feed it.

Have you ever tried looking/asking on this NG. Found them very helpful over the years:

I've used nearly all the 'notepad-replacements' suggested above, and my personal favorite is EditPlus. It's not free, but it somehow 'clicked' with me.

So, my suggestion is to just download them all, try them one-by-one, and settle with the one that suits you best.

There's no "one-size-fits-all" solution here.

nice talk ;)
