Here are a few bad things re:Notepad that pop into my mind:
-It doesn't keep indents.
-Doesn't allow you to see line numbers.
-60/64k/whateverk file size limit.
-Tabs are tabs. They're always tabs. They're always the same width (8 chars?).
-Can't spot syntax errors by colour.
-Can't Indent/Out-dent whole code blocks at a time.
[B]-Find and replace SUCKS.[\B]
I would never let my co-workers (if they were working under me) use notepad full-time. We don't have that kind of time to waste.
I haven't found the perfect editor. AFAIK, it doesn't exist. But there are much better alternatives to Notepad (and some of them have been mentioned in this thread).
