    I'm always on the lookout for a new and improved text editor.  Forget the drag-n-drop...that's only for newbs who can't type worth a crap.

    Suggested features:

    * codes for header and footer
    * colored text
    * line numbering

    Why would you want colored text? unless you mean syntax highlighting, which is a very much more diffcult thing to achieve than you might realize (you need to draw the control yourself, build a tokeniser and have fast algorithms for partial tokenisation so it isn't pausy as you write)
