AkelPad is a great text editor that can replace the standard Windows Notepad. Notebook is sometimes uncomfortable because of some limitations in functionality. AkelPad is designed to fill these gaps. It is well suited for creating and processing simple text documents and can be used for HTML page development, programming, etc.

AkelPad has advantages in working with Unicode and it is recommended to install TrueType fonts (such as Courier New) to make full use of this feature. If you want more opportunities to work with text editor - try Notepad++.

I needed something quick like Notepad in Windows but with more features. This hits the sweet spot sweetly and quickly. You got a choice of fonts and other features that fills the gap between notepad and word. That's really the space that I use the most.

It's decent, but there are better notepad applications out there for programming. Most of the touted features have long been superceded by the default windows notepad. I don't recommend this program but encourage you to try it when selecting notepad alternatives.
