    Why are you not using WordPad? It have so many more options to use, you can even paste pictures in between your
    text. Use bold letter on just one word, highlight and choose the "padding" you like.

    You will find it in your Program (x86) folder under Windows NT > Accessories > wordpad.exe.

    Make a shortcut on your Desktop and browse to it in the shown location, then you have it at hand.

    Click image for larger version.

    Because that's overkilling the overkill for what I use Notepad for.

It does support editing HTML documents but requires more knowledge of HTML than using GUI programs like FrontPage or Expression Web.

    I'd go with something like suggested, Notepad2 or Notepad++, both good alternatives with more features and free.

    A note: Write is still in C:\Windows but when double-clicked opens WordPad.
    Maybe I should upgrade my Windows 3.1....
