I don't do a lot of it, but I need to edit some html files and need a text editor to do it. I liked the looks of Kate but someone in the forum said Kate would be a big download for me because I'm Xubuntu. And since I've converted an old Dell with only a 40 GB HD, and I don't really need a feature-laden text editor, I'm not eager to overload it. Just a text editor that plays nice with Xubuntu 13.10 will do.
I've heard good things about Bluefish. Will that not overload my Xubuntu 13.10?
You have default gedit editor inbuilt and it is quite good i thin if you are over loaded then gedit is good enough for html editing or you can use sublime text 3 as the look and fill is quite good as it made for mac.
