WordPad is slow, and tends to write files out in complex formats
unless you keep your eye on it.  Notepad is adequate - barely.
I use a shareware (registered!!) program called TextPad, by Helios
Software - its designed for programming, and you can set it up to
default to whatever coding styles you like.  (auto indent, tabs, file
extension names, etc) Does good searches too - if you've got a group
of .c and .h files, and want to find (and/or replace) occurrences of
"word" it'll search files in dirs and subdirs.
