Okay. I'm going to start with TextWrangler. We'll see how it goes!
Depending on the operating system that you're using, you'll have different options available to you in terms of which text editor you can install.Some of these editors are not free, but we've listed them because they're robust and available for a short period in a trial mode. Trying them out won't cost you anything financially.
I fell in love with Notepad++, unfortunately I'm using a Mac and Text Wrangler is my second best free option. I tested the paid options and the interfaces are really sophisticaded (SublimeText 2 in particular). Fortunately, Text Wrangler's interface colors can be modified.
I have made my decision, NOTEPAD ++ not just because it is the first one on the list but because it was the one that did seemed to suit me. ConTEXT was the 2nd choice but lacked the Numbers for the lines, I somehow find it more appealing with the those numbers. I like to have some sort of order. The last one I had to restart my computer. No gracias, I stick to something that will simplify my existence not complicate it or make me go out of my way to attain something.
