I heard about Notepad++ from Michael Carter, who showcased SQLAlchemy at our last SoCal Piggies meeting and used Notepad++ to edit his Python files. I downloaded it this week and all I can say is that it rocks! For Windows users, it's one of the best editors I've ever seen, and of course it's completely free. Notepad++ is based on the Scintilla editor, and it does syntax coloring for a gazillion languages (Python included of course), it includes a huge number of plugins, such as a Hex Editor, etc., etc. Highly recommended!
