I'm currently using Programmers File Editor 32-bit http://www.lancs.ac.uk/staff/steveb/cpaap/pfe/pfefiles.htm as my stand alone raw text editor which is ok and has some usefull abilities (especially for a freebie) but I am wondering what other such utilities are out there which may better.

What text editors are you guys using and what sort of features do they have that you like?

I absolutely love and use Notepad++ which is free.
It has the following features:
    Syntax Highlighting and Syntax Folding
    WYSIWYG
    Auto-completion
    Multi-Document
    Multi-View
    Regular Expression Search/Replace supported
    Full Drag ‘N' Drop supported
    Dynamic position of Views
    File Status Auto-detection
    Zoom in and zoom out
    Multi-Language environment supported
    Bookmark
    Brace and Indent guideline Highlighting
    Macro recording and playback
It also has keyword/auto-completion support for most of the popular languages out of the box, but you can also define yours as well, which I have had to do as I use a little used language for a lot of my work. I have also heard good things about PsPad which is also free.

I love vim!

I especially appreciate the following features:

- Syntax highlighting for all popular programming/scripting/markup languages
- Keybinding capability, allowing to bind any function to any key combination
- Have multiple files open in tabs, or in split-view
- Spell-checking
- Powerful undo features, you can undo changes based on the time they were made or in the traditional step-based approach.
- Scripting support. It allows to automate any kind of editing you make in one file, so that it can be automatically done on others files.
- Supports multiple character encodings
- Diff mode, allowing to view the differences between similar files in a customized way
- Powerful searching and replacing features, with full regexp support.
- Fast and reliable. I have yet to find a text editor that opens a 200MB SQL dump so fast and without complaining. It can even open compressed text files on the fly.
