I think I’ll stick with Windows Notepad for basic plain text editing. I think HjPad’s attempts to force rich text formatting is odd but perhaps it considers itself to be a WordPad as opposed to a Notepad substitute.

Actually, it doesn’t give you a chance to name it first, and it defaults to RTF.
I never saved as RTF, but the first time I loaded the program in a long time was yesterday and it just popped up the dialog to choose Word 6.0, RTf, or TXT when I hit control+n to create a new document.
Even picking txt, which I did, when you go to save it, you get a warning that you will lose all formatting if you save in text format, so you have to pick text from that list.
Now, no matter if I do a save as or a straight save, it defaults to rtf. You have to pick text format.
But, to me that is a small price to pay for a non-bloated text editor with the standard spell check feature.

Or I suspect if Leonard adds a period followed by txt when naming the saved file, he'll get a plain text file.
