Notepad++ is a free source editor with the syntax highlighting.

It supports:
c/c++/Java/html/xml/php;
asp/vb/vbs/SQL/Objective-C;
javascript/ini/makefile/MSDos Display.

It also gives the extra functionality to the general user: colorize the user defined words. You can print your source code in color (or whatever you want) if you have a color printer (WYSIWYG). Furthermore, Notepad++ includes the multi-view feature, which allows the user to edit the different documents at the same time, and even edit the same document synchronously in 2 different views.

Notepad++ supports drag and drop: not only you can drop the file from explorer to open it, but also you can drag and drop a document from a view to another. With all the functionalities, Notepad++ runs as fast as Notepad provided by MS Windows.

Features:

Syntax Highlighting and Syntax Folding
User Language Defined System
Tabed document and Multi-View
More than 50 languages supported

Full Drag 'N' Drop supported
Macro recording and playback
Extensible with its plugin system
