    I love Notepad (Win7) but I need to change text colors & hi-lite some words etc.

    MS Word-ish I guess, but simple & lite, quick & easy, like notepad.

    Any suggestions to save me the slog of researching & installing until success?

    I don't write code, so I can't relate to it's abilities for that. But for basic use of text, it's the best I've used. Never use any computer without it...
