RJ TextEd is a good replacement text editing app If you find that your programming development tool doesn't exactly make life easy for you. RJ TextEd is a web development tool and a Unicode text editor which aims to make HTML coding simpler, faster and more intuitive.

Some of the key features in RJ TextEd are syntax error highlighting, auto completion and a very handy CSS editor. One rather unusual feature is that RJ TextEd includes an FTP client that enables you to get your coding published super quick although RJ TextEd is not exactly an advanced client and if you need secure connections, you're probably best not to rely on it.

For those that are relatively new to coding, another handy feature is the HTML validation tool which allows you to format and repair your code using wizards. Finally, it also includes spell checking, e-mail support and advanced search options. The remarkable thing is that this is all entirely free although the downside is that it won't support all coding languages so if you frequently use different ones, you'll need something more flexible.

Overall, RJ TextEd is a powerful tool for developers who require more features than syntax highlighting, though its main competitor, Notepad++ is easier to use.
