Thank you both for your advice.
I was going with jEdit just because I had used it once before with
STATA (back on my old computer which had Windows XP) and was quite
impressed by it - especially the colour coding of the syntax. But like
you say it is not the only one out there and I agree that my best
option now is to try Notepad ++, following the instructions that are
already out there.

Thanks again,
