All three editors are free to download and use!
PFE development has stopped and I have included it mainly for reference. It does however have the facility to:
- Run DOS commands and capture the output
- Run simple macros
XML Note Pad 2007 is excellent if you need to data values from attributes or elements.
Notepad++ has various add-ons available for it. - When you download it, be sure to run its internal update function.
Needless to say, all three are better than Notepad!
