Is it too much to ask to have a text editor that:
- Fully supports (100%) typical Unicode encodings (eg. UTF-8, UTF-16)
- Has a well-designed user interface
- Looks and behaves like a typical application for the operating system on which it is running
- Runs on Windows and Linux
- Is free (or at least not $100+ for just a single-seat multi-user license)
The first person to point me to an editor that complies with all of the above gets a cookie.
