I am looking for a little more advanced alternative for Notepad. There are a lot of text-editor but most of them take a while to open.
I found Metapad as a fast and feature-rich replacement. Unfortunately, it has a single but major issue: It does not support Unicode only ASCII.
Is there other really fast choice?
Some text editors claim to be Unicode enabled but could not render RTL (right to left) languages(e.g. Persian) correctly. If you copy
سیب to one of them and you can see this string similar to its shape here, the editor is really Unicode editor.
