The original Notepad shipped with Windows is probably the handiest program of all times: small, fast, and without frills. Notepad2 tries to follow this principle - it's a small, fast, and free text editor with syntax highlighting for HTML and other common languages.
What's new in this version:
- Notepad2 source code now released under the GNU GPL
- "Read Only" option handles file attributes
- Enhanced find and replace dialogs with new options
- Optionally auto close HTML/XML tags (Ctrl+Shift+H)
- Improved tabify/untabify selection functions
- New hotkey to select XML scheme (Shift+F11)
