EditPad Lite (link) : is a general-purpose text editor, designed to be small and compact, yet offer all the functionality you expect from a basic text editor. EditPad Lite works with Windows NT4, 98, 2000, ME, XP and Vista.

JujuEdit is a file editor, or alternatively a text editor with knobs-on. It is an application which is as non-destructive as possible: When you open a file, JujuEdit does NOT convert it into an internal file format. All conversion and interpretation is done on the fly, so that at any point during an edit you can choose to view your file in a different mode (ANSI/Unicode/UTF-8/Installed Code Pages/Binary), without the underlying data being converted. This was an important design decision which is to my knowledge unique to JujuEdit. It means that JujuEdit will tolerate unusual or unexpected characters (like NULLs or inconsistent CR/LF line endings) without clobbering them.
