Dear Martin,

Thanks very much for considering my question.

Actually, I have been using Crimson Editor for a long time but since I
upgraded to W7 I get all kinds of problems with permissions, which is
what has prompted me to go back to the (much improved!) do-file editor
in Stata. I have experimented with others (mostly Notepad ++) but I
have not found one that (a) is easy to get to mark up Stata code, (b)
has a simple way to add "hotkeys" to do files and selected lines and
(c) plays nicely with W7. CE and N++ do pretty well with (a) and (b),
less so with (c). I would certainly be open to other suggestions.

Thanks for the registry tip as well, however I think I am fainthearted.
