GVIM for Windows.

It's lightweight (starts up fast, doesn't have crazy memory issues
if I run it with other programs, etc.), does darn near everything
you might ever want a text editor to do, and has syntax highlighting
available for every language and markup known to man.

It effortlessly reads and writes both unix and dos/windows text
formats. It doesn't randomly insert carriage returns into your text,
like some versions of notepad.

And it has Windows dropdown menus for it's many obscure functions
(though you can also learn the obscure keystrokes).
